Ross Wolfenden had four winners at Harrington

HARRINGTON, Del. - Harrington Raceway's 68th year of live harness racing resumed Monday night with 4-time defending driving champion Ross Wolfenden winning four races on the 12 race program.

Live racing had been on a brief hiatus in central Delaware since the July 24 Governor's Day program during the Delaware State Fair.

Wolfenden, who finished in a deadlock atop the driver standings with George Dennis in 2013, teamed up with 2013 leading trainer Joe Hundertpfund Jr. to win three of his races. The 51-year-old Wolfenden's first win came in the second race aboard Polaris N ($11.40) before capturing consecutive races aboard Hundertpfund-trained horses in the seventh with Ivan Blue Chip ($4) and eighth Ziggy Sky ($4.80).

Wolfenden then triumphed in the 11th with Danish Diligence ($3.20) to cap the grand slam.

There was approximately a half-hour delay shortly before the 11th race due to an electrical outage.

Jon Roberts and George Dennis each recorded a driving double.

Racing will continue on a Monday through Thursday schedule until October 23.
