HARRINGTON, Del. - Overlooked at odds of 14-to-1, Jeffrey Bartels' Last Shot Leeton ($31, Roger Plante Jr.) was an upset winner in the $11,000 feature Monday at Harrington Raceway in 1:52.3.

Trained by Eli Scott Jr., Last Shot Leeton settled behind a contested pace which saw Major Bucks on the front in 26.2 to the opening quarter-mile, 55 seconds to the half-mile and 1:23.3 to the three-quarters.

Last Shot Leeton mounted his attack his second-over behind favorite People Are Crazy before fanning wide at the top of the stretch and blowing by the leaders for a one-length win over Ourea Nourrir and People Are Crazy. It was the second straight win for Last Shot Leeton.

Plante, George Dennis and Ross Wolfenden each had two wins on the ten-race program.
