Powerful Charger surpassed $100,000 in seasonal earnings with the win

HARRINGTON, Del. -Harness racing trainer Jim King Jr. and Tim Tetrick's Powerful Charger ($5.40, Victor Kirby) prevailed Wednesday in the $16,000 Open Trot at Harrington Raceway in 1:55.2.

Trained by co-owner King Jr., Powerful Charger took advantage of a contested early battle where Chinese Cuisine parked Enrico As, who both finished out of contention, before mounting his assault and reeling in stretch leader Tough Mac for the win. Five Towns finished third.

It was the 10th win of the year for Powerful Charger, who surpassed $100,000 in seasonal earnings with the win. It was the second straight night that the King Jr. stable teamed up with driver Kirby to win Harrington's featured race, after winning the Fillies and Mares Open Tuesday with Purrfect Bags.

Kirby also piloted the winner in the sub-featured $12,500 Open II, as Tirade Hanover ($3.80) was victorious for trainer/co-owner Leigh Raymer in 1:55.1.

Kirby had three wins on the program. Allan Davis and Pat Berry each had a double.
