HARRINGTON, DE - George Leager's Slick Tony ($2.10, Russell Foster) completed a sweep of his Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund 3-year-old eliminations at Harrington Raceway Monday with a 1:53.1 win in the first of two $20,000 divisions.

The No Spin Zone colt has dominated the DSBF ranks, with 13 wins in 17 career starts. Sent off as the 1-to-9 favorite, Slick Tony cruised to an easy win over Cinder Block and GWT for owner/trainer Leager. He will undoubtedly be the favorite in the $100,000 final on July 26.

In the second division for colts and geldings, Jo Ann Looney-King's Evolution Tour ($4, Tim Tetrick) prevailed in 1:53.3. The Roddy's Bags Again gelding held off a late charge from Transitioning Joy to pickup his eighth career win for trainer Jim King Jr. Sea Bags was third.

In the overnight feature, the $15,000 Open for pacers, Arthur Stafford and Arthur Stafford Jr.'s Blazing Bobby Sox ($6, Stafford Jr.) notched his fourth straight win. Trained by his co-owner and driver, the 7-year-old Panderosa gelding led most of the mile in achieving his 8th win of the year. Mel Mara was second with Little Ben third.

Owner Howard Taylor won three races on the program. Ross Wolfenden had three driving wins.
