For the third straight night at Harrington Raceway, Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) horses headlined the program, as this time the 3-year-old pacing fillies were in action in three $20,000 eliminations.
However, driver Ross Wolfenden stole the sophomore pacers thunder by winning eight races on the Harrington program, a track record for a 13-race card.
One of Wolfenden’s wins came with DSBF pacing filly Here’s My Ticket ($2.20), who was an overwhelming favorite and raced like it in her two length win over Macs Journey and Ann’s Obsession in the final DSBF elimination in 1:56.2. Owned and trained by Eli Scott, thefilly was never headed in her wire to wire win.
She was the fastest of the three divisions as Norma Messick and Tim Torbert’s Roddy’s Girl ($3.20, Vince Copeland, 1:57.1) and Ed Walls’ Designer Bags ($11.40, Allan Davis, 1:57.1) won the remaining two splits respectively.
The pacing fillies will return to compete in round two of DSBF action next Tuesday June 12, before the $100,000 Final event on July 26.
Wolfenden win’s parade Tuesday began with a win in the 2nd race with Te’s Cammie ($2.40), one of three winners trained by John Cabot, followed by a win in the 4th with Funtime Filly ($13.20). He then won with Touch the Clouds ($12.80) in the 6th race, and Liqueur ($4.60) in the 8th.
Dreamluck ($2.40) gave Wolfenden his fifth win on the program in the 9th race, before winning the next three races with Best Route ($18), Here’s My Ticket ($2.20) and Keystone Rhythm ($2.20).
