Jim King Jr. and Tim Tetrick's Powerful Charger ($5.80) notched his 11th win of the year Wednesday in the $16,000 Open Trot at the harness racing meeting at Harrington Raceway in 1:56.4.

Trained by co-owner King Jr., the 7-year-old Powerful Emotion gelding charged home with urgency to reel in stretch leader Wingus late for the win.

Spunky Jack was third.

The win catapulted Powerful Charger closer to $500,000 in career earnings, as he has currently won more than $490,000.

A fundraiser was held throughout the night in support of the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition.

Horse bracelets and other merchandise were sold during the evening with all proceeds going to benefit the DBCC.

Local breast cancer survivors were on hand to participate in the winner's circle photo of the seventh race.

Prior to the races a moment of silence was held to honor the memory of long-time Delaware horsemen J.D. Dennis who passed away on Monday September 21.

Dennis was a former board member of Harrington Raceway and Delaware State Fair.

He trained horses for more than 60 years and was survived by his wife Nellie and five children.
