HARRINGTON, Del. - George Leager's Slick Tony ($2.20, Russell Foster) notched his 12th seasonal harness racing win Monday in the featured $17,000 Open Pace at Harrington Raceway in 1:52.

Sent off as the 1-to-9 favorite, Slick Tony not disappoint his backers. After taking the lead from Allwillworkout near the opening quarter mile in 27.2 seconds, "Tony" marched to the half-mile in 56 seconds and three-quarters in 1:24.2 as first-over attacker Star Messenger retreated.

When the field of six hit the stretch, Slick Tony maintained a comfortable advantage and was one length ahead at the wire of Allwillworkout as Little Ben gained late for third.

Trained by his owner, "Tony" is a 4-year-old No Spin Zone stallion who has been the scourge of the Open pacing ranks on the Delaware circuit this season, banking nearly $165,000 in 2019, which ranks him among the top 15 in the country for aged pacers.

Corey Callahan had four wins on the card. Mike Cole had a double.
