HARRINGTON, Del. - Powerful Charger ($6.60, Victor Kirby) delivered I Like My Boss his first career loss with a 1:56 victory in the $17,000 Open Trot at Harrington Raceway Wednesday.

Owned by trainer Jim King Jr., and Tim Tetrick, the 6-year-old Powerful Emotion gelding edged clear late after a first over grind and held off a game I Like My Boss who chased second over and ran out of racetrack in his rally attempt resulting in a narrow loss. It was the first career defeat for I Like My Boss in 16 starts.

For Powerful Charger, it was his third win of the season and first career win in the Open class. I Like My Boss, a Delaware sire stakes champion, won all three of his starts as a 2-year-old and 12 previous attempts at age 3.

Drivers Allan Davis and Ross Wolfenden each had three wins on the program. George Dennis had a double.
