The sport's richest pacer, Joe Muscara's Mister Big, winner of more than $3 million lifetime, is among 10 of the sport's top pacers entered for the Monday October 13 eliminations of the 2nd Annual Bobby Quillen Memorial Pace at Harrington Raceway.

There will be two $30,000 divisions, with the top four finishers from each returning to compete in the $317,000 (est.) Final on October 20.

Last year's event was won by Sylvia Burke and James Koran's Maltese Artist, who returns to defend his title as one of two entrants for trainer Mickey Burke, who also ships in Strollin Stable, William Robinson and James Koehler's Won the West. Maltese Artist defeated Virgil Morgan-trained Mister Big in their elim last year before winning the final from post eight.

Seven of the 10 entrants are millionaires. Only local pacer Western Ace, owned by the Kovach Stables and Teague Inc., and Maltese Artist have wins over the hale-mile racetrack. Western Ace won an elim last year and finished third in the final.

The event is named in honor of late Delaware legislator and Harrington Raceway board member, Bobby Quillen, who passed away in 2004. Quillen was an avid supporter of harness racing and a popular figure around the racetrack who always looked out for Delaware horsemen.
