HARRINGTON, DE. - George Leager's Slick Tony ($3.20, Tony Morgan) was a 1:53 harness racing winner Monday at Harrington Raceway in the $13,500 featured conditioned pace, the feature event.

HARRINGTON, DE. - Harrington Raceway's 74th season of live harness racing will resume tonight (August 17) with a 12-race program (post time 4:30 p.m.). The feature race is a $13,500 conditioned pace that features some local pacing heavyweights, including 2015 Horse of the Year Wiggle It Jiggleit (9/2, Montrell Teague), for owners George Teague Jr. and Teague Racing Partnership. The Clyde Francis-trainee has banked nearly $4 million in his illustrious career. The venerable 8-year-old (Mr. Wiggles) will start from post position eight. Meanwhile, a familiar rival and 2019 Harrington horse of the meet, Slick Tony (9/5, Tony Morgan), is back for owner/trainer George Leager. The 5-year-old No Spin Zone stallion drew post two and will look to pad his healthy career bankroll of nearly $700,000. He is one of the richest Delaware-bred horses of all-time. The path to the winner's circle won't likely be an easy ticket however, as the field is full of viable challengers, including Richard Pollucci and Jo Ann Looney-King's Trojan Banner N (3/1, Victor Kirby). The 5-year-old Bettor's Delight stallion is exiting races versus top flight competition in which the winning time in his last 5 races has been sub-1:50. The Jim King Jr.-trainee will start from post five. The husband/wife team of Jim and Jo Ann Looney-King's recent successes are well documented after campaigning a pair of the sport's brightest stars last season, namely Dan Patch Horse of the Year Shartin N and 2-year-old filly of the year Lyons Sentinel., both of which have returned to action this year and are racing at a high level. Another formidable threat in King barn is Apple Valley Art (7/5, Victor Kirby), who will compete from the rail in the 11th race on the card. The Delaware-bred owned by Jo Ann Looney-King swept through his Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) eliminations and $100,000 final on July 6 and is an impressive 3-for-4 lifetime and will vie for his fourth consecutive victory. The wagering format includes a pick four in races (2-5) and races (9-12). Live racing will continue on a Monday/Tuesday schedule for the balance of August and into the first week of September, until the week of September 7 when Wednesdays will be added through the duration of the meet on October 21. by Matt Sparacino, for Harrington Raceway
