HARRINGTON, DE - Don and David Wiest's Rhett ($3.20, Tony Morgan) was the fastest of four $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) divisions for 2-year-old harness racing trotters Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.

Rhett's win came in 2:01.3 via disqualification as Big Al M hit the wire first but was placed second for violation of the euro-rail rule. Big Al M was the leader throughout while Rhett sat in the pocket. Someofmygoodtime finished third. A son of Keystone Activator, Rhett notched his first career win for trainer Don Wiest.

 

The first filly division went to Jazzy Judy ($3.40, Victor Kirby) in a battle of attrition as only 2 of the 6 horses stayed on gait. Jazzy Judy mowed down leader Reality late for a 2:06.2 win. Amy Wil was third. It was the first career start for the daughter of Political Briefing, owned by Thestable Jazzy Judy Grp. and trained by Jim King Jr.

The second male division saw Jim Morand and Nanticoke Racing's Roll Juan ($14.60, Morand) hold off a hard charging Blue Devil for a 2:03.2 win. Trained by Les Givens, the Rolls Blue Chip colt prevailed in his 2nd career start. Bluestone Jackson was third. Favorite and previously unbeaten Malachi's Test broke stride near the quarter mile mark.

Ed Kimmel, Don Wiest and David Wiest Stables' Azurine ($3.40, Morgan) was a wire-to-wire winner in the final division on the card for fillies, with a 2:06.1 win over Designer's Edge and Annalee third. Trained by Don Wiest, the Anders Bluestone filly was making her 2nd career start.

Round two of DSBF action kicks off Monday September 28 for male pacers, with filly pacers on September 29 and all sexes of trotters on September 30.
