Jim King Jr. and Tim Tetrick's Powerful Charger ($22, Montrell Teague) was an upset harness racing winner in the $17,500 Open Trot Wednesday at Harrington Raceway in 1:57.2 over a sloppy racetrack.

In the top weekly overnight event for trotters on the circuit, Spunky Jack made the early lead before Awsome Valley went back to the front at the quarter mile in 29 seconds. The 7-year-old 6-to-5 favorite Awsome Valley then marched through remaining fractions of 58.2 and 1:27.4 with Hemi Seelster applying heavy pressure. Powerful Charger followed that live cover and surged in deep stretch for a narrow win. Hemi Seelster was second. Awsome Valley finished third.

It was the 36th career win for Powerful Charger who was a former Harrington horse of the meet.

Victor Kirby had three winners on the program. Teague had a driving double.

Meanwhile, once again the pick five (50-cent based wager, races 7-11) went unsolved and now has a carryover of $10,023.26 heading into the Thursday program. Track officials have guaranteed a $25,000 pool for Thursday.
