George Leager will turn 79 in August, but says he feels like a man half that age. The success of harness racing horses such as Diva Demands might help him keep that youthful disposition. Diva Demands will start from post No. 2 in Tuesday's $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund final for 3-year-old female pacers at Dover Downs. The filly has won two of three starts this year, including her opening-round assignment in the DSBF series before finishing second by a neck to Bad Mama in last week's second leg. Corey Callahan will drive Diva Demands, who is 12-1 on the morning line. Trainer Jim King Jr. sends out the race's top picks, 2-1 Logan's Girl and 3-1 Spanish Dream. Bad Mama, trained by Clyde Francis, is 7-2. "She's just a game filly," Leager said about Diva Demands. "I knew she had a lot of speed last year, but I never could get her right. She's better this year. She's only missed a check once in her career, so you have to like her. But you hate to brag on them too much. It's better to talk about what they've done than what they're going to do. You never know what's going to happen." A daughter of Roddy's Bags Again out of the broodmare Me In The Spotlite, Diva Demands was purchased for $5,500 at the 2015 Chick's Sale. Last year Diva Demands won once in seven starts, with her victory coming in the November DSBF series consolation, and earned $15,620. For her career, she has banked $33,120. Leager, a Maryland native who spent most of his life as a farmer, has five horses in training. Over the years, he enjoyed success with horses like homebred 1998 Maryland Sire Stakes champion Aunt Lainey, 2005 DSBF champ Badlands Cowgirl, homebred $354,051-earner Mom's Toy, and Razzle Dazzle Hall. He also partnered with fellow Maryland resident Robert Van Dyke Jr., who passed away in 2015, on horses. "We had horses for 30 years and never had a disagreement," Leager said. "He was a real good guy." This season, Leager has two 2-year-olds he likes, homebred colt Slick Tony and filly Lofty Illusion. "You like them until you find out they're no good," Leager said, laughing. "I breed most of my horses, but I buy one every once in a while. It was probably around 1980 when I started fooling with the horses. I did it part time. I'm near 80 years old now and I don't know where all the time went. I feel like I ought to be 40. I feel pretty good." Diva Demands won her first-round elimination in the DSBF by two lengths over Lillisbagsrpacked in a career-best-equaling 1:55.2. Last week, she sat a pocket trip behind Bad Mama before briefly getting a nose in front as the two horses battled in the stretch. Bad Mama rallied for the neck victory. "I think when she got by Bad Mama she thought the race was over," Leager said. Bad Mama and Logan's Girl both were two-time winners in the DSBF preliminaries. Diva Demands, Spanish Dream, and Lunar Phase each had one victory and one second-place finish. A Lady Sizzling also had a win in the eliminations. "There are a bunch of good ones in there," Leager said. "We'll see how it goes." Ken Weingartner

Cashmere Delight (Jim Morand) came out fast for a brief early lead before Logan's Girl took over. The $167,840 lifetime winner was followed by Cashmere Delight and Westwind Roddylee (Tim Tetrick). Lunar Phase raced from behind with Art Stafford Jr. as Spanish Dream ( Kirby) led from the start with no early challengers. Stafford moved Lunar Phase from off the pace to move into contention on the final turn. It was a two-horse battle down the lane with Lunar Phase getting up at the wire in 1:53.3, a lifetime mark for the Roddy's Bags Again-Blue Moon Artist bay owned by Stafford and Wyatt Starkey. It was her first win this year in her third start. I Won Them Both (Montrell Teague) closed well to finish third.

Freehold, NJ --- There will always be a special place in Montrell Teague’s heart for Custard The Dragon. The pacer was the first open stakes winner driven by Teague, who in 2011 guided the then harness racing 3-year-old colt to wins in the Max C. Hempt Memorial and Hoosier Cup. Teague and Custard The Dragon also won an Adios elimination with a world-record performance before finishing second to favorite Alsace Hanover in the final. Now, Teague is enjoying the ride with one of Custard The Dragon’s offspring, 3-year-old Henry The Dragon. The colt has won seven of eight career races and is 2-for-2 this season as he heads to Thursday’s second round of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund series for 3-year-old male pacers at Dover Downs. Henry The Dragon is owned by George Teague Jr. Inc., which bred the colt with Elmer Fannin. Clyde Francis trains Henry The Dragon, who is out of the broodmare Surveille Hanover. “He reminds me so much of Custard,” Montrell Teague said. “He’s just got the perfect attitude. He loves to do it. He’s a very calm horse. Custard was the same exact way. He’s the spitting image of him. He’s like his twin.” Teague, the 26-year-old son of George Teague Jr., has won numerous stakes races since Custard The Dragon in 2011, most notably with 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit. So while it is difficult to pick favorites, Custard The Dragon remains unique to Teague in certain ways. “It’s a little bit sentimental with Custard because he started me off, I think,” Teague said. “He kind of had a different attitude than Wiggle’s. Wiggle doesn’t let you love on him like Custard would. Custard is still my man. I see a lot of him in (Henry The Dragon). Hopefully he can step up and be as good as his father.” Henry The Dragon, named after one of Teague’s nephews, did not do much to impress Team Teague when he was training down as a 2-year-old, but that all changed once the racing season began. When Henry The Dragon won a division of the DSBF in 1:52.1 last November on the same night the Matron Stakes for 2-year-old male pacers was won by What’s Goin On in 1:53, it confirmed to Teague that his colt could be a player in future open stakes. “He could have won (the Matron) hands down easy,” Teague said. “He still had the ear plugs in and was on idle. “Training down he was just average. He didn’t really stand out. When he got behind the gate he was a totally different horse. It was like the flip of a switch when he got into a race. He’s a small horse, but he’s all go. He never gets tired.” Henry The Dragon’s only loss last year came in his last start of the season when he finished second to Bags To Riches in the $100,000 DSBF final at Dover. But Henry The Dragon impressed his connections enough to have them stake the colt to several open races this year, including the North America Cup and Messenger. “When he was a 2-year-old I thought pretty highly of him because he kind of dominated the Delaware stakes,” Teague said. “He got caught in the last final because he was sick. After every race I’d call Dad and say maybe we should stake this guy a little more because he’s definitely shown up every time and shown he has some speed. We talked about it and we staked him up a little more. Not overly, but we’re going to give him a chance anyway.” Henry The Dragon is not the only horse from the Teague Stable to open eyes in the DSBF this year. Daiymir, also named after one of Montrell’s nephews, won his career debut last week with a 1:52.4 effort in the first round of the series. Daiymir and Henry The Dragon will meet in Thursday’s first of four divisions. “He seems like a pretty nice horse so far,” Teague said about Daiymir, who was unraced at 2 because of soreness. “He’s the same way as Henry; he’s two fingers and loves what he does. I think he’s got a little bit bigger brush than Henry. I think he could out-sprint him. He’s pretty impressive. But Henry is a grinder; he can go nonstop. When he gets on the track he points his head to the front and he’s ready to roll. I haven’t seen the end of it yet. “It’s unfortunate they drew in together. I was hoping they wouldn’t face each other until the final.” The $100,000 DSBF final is April 13. Francis also sends out Whispering Witch, Rat Tail, Daylen, Stay In Your Place, and Ain’t It Fun in Thursday’s DSBF divisions.   by Ken Weingartner, Harness Racing Communications

Post time is 4:30 p.m. Master Clave and Moonshine Lavec were impressive winners in their DSBF 1st leg prelims and drew into separate divisions this week.

Linda MacDonald had no experience in harness racing when she rode her horse to Medford Davis Jr.'s farm in Smyrna, Del., one day in 1973. But a year later, the teenage MacDonald (nee McNatt) was working in the stables there and upon graduating high school started driving horses for Davis. MacDonald, whose parents --- a Delaware State Police officer and stay-at-home mom --- had bought her a pony at age 11, recorded 633 of her lifetime 646 wins as a driver over the ensuing 20 years. In 1985, she became the first female driver to win a stakes race at the Meadowlands when she guided the Davis-trained Go Nancy Isle to victory in a New Jersey Sire Stakes event. In addition, MacDonald has more than 300 wins as a trainer, often competing now with horses she bred with one of Davis' daughters, Susan Durham. The two longtime friends ("She's the sister I never had; she's a sweetheart," MacDonald said of Durham) hope to add to their breeder-owner win total Monday when they send Crosby to the second round of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund series for 3-year-old male trotters at Dover Downs. The winner of November's $100,000 DSBF final for 2-year-old male trotters, Crosby is the 5-2 second choice on the morning line in Monday's first of two $20,000 divisions. Crosby, who has earned $74,000 thanks to two wins and five on-the-board finishes in six lifetime starts, is the most recent success story for MacDonald and Durham. He is a son of stallion Keystone Activator out of the mare Melody Luv and his family includes previous MacDonald-trained (and Davis-bred) DSBF champions Miss Ella D and Here's Bo Bo, who earned $280,786 in his career. "We raised and raced the mother (Melody Luv)," MacDonald said. "She got hurt and never really hit her potential. But she was willing and really wanted to trot. Her offspring seem to have a lot of her traits. I was really pleased with Crosby last year. He had a lot of issues being sick, but he's always been very willing. He's very level-headed." Crosby was limited to five starts last year because of illness, but finished the season with his victory in the DSBF final at Dover. Crosby, driven by George Dennis, rallied from near the rear of the field with a four-wide move on the last turn and trotted home in 2:03.3 on a chilly, windy night. "Everything worked out right for him," MacDonald said. "The weather wasn't the greatest. The fractions were a little too steep for that group of horses and the weather. Everything set up for him. He got great cover that took him right to the last turn and he did the rest. "George Dennis has done a real good job with him. He's done everything we've asked of him." And while most people wonder whether Crosby was named after singer Bing or hockey star Sidney, the truth is the gelding was named after a riding horse owned by MacDonald's veterinarian because the two have similar markings. "He's chestnut with a big blaze face and one white leg behind," MacDonald said. "When this colt was born, she said, 'Oh, little Crosby.' So that's where the name came from." The favorite, at 2-1, in Crosby's DSBF division Monday is Master Clave, who won last October's $100,000 DSBF final at Harrington. Master Clave, trained by John Wilkerson, won his seasonal debut last week in 2:01.1 after going off stride behind the starting gate. Moonshine Lavec, trained by Erika Paradee, is the 2-1 choice in the second division. He also is coming off a victory in last week's DSBF opening round. "I thought Moonshine Lavec and Master Clave were the better two last year; I just caught a little luck and won the (November) final," MacDonald said. "Anything can happen with these green trotters. If (Crosby) stays flat he'll get a major piece of them. Everything has to be right." MacDonald and her husband Joe train a total of a dozen horses at Merrie Medo Farm. While MacDonald enjoyed driving, she is happy with her career as a trainer and racing horses with Durham. "We stay close to home," MacDonald said. "Ours aren't the elite bred; we don't stake them to other places. We're content with the races we have here. We've done OK." Ken Weingartner

DOVER, Del.--- George Teague started seven Delaware-breds in the four $20,000 1st leg Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) Three-Year-Old Male pace divisions and came away with the two fastest preliminary winners, Henry The Drago and Daiymir on Thursday, March 30 at Dover Downs.

A son of a former Teague's stakes winner Custard The Dragon-Surveille Hanover scored his second win at three and seventh lifetime in eight starts with only a second in last November's $100,000 DSBF freshman final to blemish his record. Unbroken Vision (Corey Callahan) was a game second in front of Almost Cut My Hair (Vic Kirby) third.

Wake Up And Go (Callahan) was the show horse. Daiymir is a son of Mr. Wiggles-Cookie Money and as the rest of the Teague stable is trained by Clyde Francis.

DOVER, Del.--- Spoonful and Luv Is Blind used different methods to 1st leg harness racing victories in Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) Three-Year-Old $20,000 preliminaries on Wednesday, March 29 at Dover Downs. Tough Mac used the passing lane to win the $20,000 Open trot. Tetrick wins five again. Jim Morand and Spoonful came on strong after the three quarters on the way to a 2:00.1 win in the first $20,000 division. The winner of last November's $100,000 final bided his time in fourth place until pulling out to race alongside leader Political Energy (Corey Callahan) around the final turn then rolled on for his first win of the season. The Political Briefing-Sanctions filly now has won $114,512 lifetime for Delbert Cain and Nanticoke Racing. A Chorus Line (Jason Thompson) finished third. Vic Kirby put Luv Is Blind right to the lead and never faltered en route to a 2:00 triumph in the second of two DSBF filly trots. Leigh Raymer conditions the Keystone Activator-Iluvulikealuvsong bay making her first start of the year, a first career win. Gogh Cinorita (Ross Wolfenden) was second in front of Ohtobetheone (Tony Morgan). The DSBF spotlight is on a fast group of freshman colt and gelding pacers, Thursday. The 2nd leg prelims are set next week with $20,000 male trots Monday, female pacers Tuesday, filly trotters Wednesday and male pacers on Thursday. The top eight point-getters qualify for $100,000 DSBF finals during the final week of the meet, April 10-13. Tough Mac, usually is a wire-to-wire winner, but in the Wednesday feature $20,000 Open trot, Corey Callahan got the Lockkeeper-Traditional Lady gelding fastest but when Gural Hanover (Morgan) took over, Tough Mac was content to face behind the leader and then closed quickly in the lane to score a 1:52.2 victory equaling his lifetime mark. Wind Of The North (Sean Bier) was third ahead of $3.7-million winner Market Share (Tim Tetrick). Tim Tetrick duplicated his five-wins on Tuesday, two of those for trainer Scott DiDomenico, Corey Callahan had three wins, Tony Morgan and Ross Wolfenden had two winning drives.
