HARRINGTON, Del. - Daryl Bier and Joann Dombeck's Wind of the North ($2.20, Victor Kirby) had a successful Harrington Raceway debut with a 1:55.4 win in the harness racing featured $15,000 Open Trot Wednesday.

The winner of more than $730,000 lifetime and 25 races scored impressively from post position five for trainer Jenny Bier. Five Towns (14-to-1) was sent for the early lead from post three and marched through fractions of 28.1, 57 and 1:26.3 while Wind of the North mounted a second over attack heading to three-quarters. Wind of the North then maneuvered around poor cover three-wide and hit his best stride in deep stretch to reel in Five Towns for a narrow win at the wire. Awsome Valley overcame an early miscue to get third.

Ross Wolfenden, Jon Roberts and defending Harrington driving champ Kirby each had a double.

Live racing will continue on a Monday through Thursday schedule until Thursdays are dropped beginning the week of June 12 through June 28.
