The Roddy's Bags Again filly settled in fourth early behind pacesetting favorite Totally Rusty, who cruised through fractions of 27.3, 55.1 and 1:24.1. Kirby and Purrfect Bags mounted their attack first over and steadily gained ground before a fierce final charge reeled in the favorite at the finish in dramatic fashion. Gigi Deo was third. The aptly named Purrfect Bags remained perfect in her career, with four wins in as many starts. Trained by Jim King Jr., the mile established a new track record, which had been broken the previous two races in a row by Totally Rusty. "This filly showed a lot of guts tonight and really dug in late," said Kirby, who won three races. "They told me this filly loves a target and they were right.

"This is the most exciting race that I've ever won in over 60 years," she said. "We had the mare and she couldn't go a quarter much faster than 35 seconds. I went to Chick's Sale looking for a weanling last December and I couldn't come home with one because everything went too high. I had $2,000 and ended up with her. Jimmy (trainer Jim King Jr.) reminded me, he said don't you remember who the dam was? I said nope. And he said, you owned her." In the $20,000 DSBF consolation, Erica Hanley and Pam Wagner's Iaquinta ($12, Kirby) recorded a win in 1:56.2.

Two nights into DSBF 2-year-old action, first crop sires have enjoyed ample success. Scott Woogen's KJ Ben ($14.40, Art Stafford Jr.) was the fastest winner after a 1:54.1 impressive score. The Riggins colt brushed to lead at the opening quarter mile in 28.3 seconds, clearing early leader and race favorite Smoking Joey. KJ Ben then marched through fractions of 57.1 and 1:26.1 before holding the favorite at bay in the stretch for a measured win. Trained by Duane Wagner, it was the third win of KJ Ben's career. Perhaps the most contentious division was the fourth when Michael White's Son of a Sizzle ($11.80, Allan Davis) recorded a 1:54.2 win from off the pace for trainer Gary Green. The Life Sizzles colt battled first over and cleared leader Byby Landon, before holding off a game late charge from Remember Me VK for his first win of the season in five career starts. George and Tina Dennis Inc and Ask W Stables' Roddy's Hot Again ($2.80, George Dennis) notched his Third Straight win in the first division on the program. The Roddy's Bags Again gelding never had an anxious moment in his front end win in 1:56.3. Roddy's Hot Again is trained by his co-owner and driver George Dennis. Garnet O'Marrow's Seboomook Katahdin ($2.10, Allan Davis) was an 11 length winner in his DSBF division. Sent off as the 1-to-9 favorite, the Riggins gelding never relented once assuming the lead before the quarter mile. Trained by Wayne Givens, he was won 3 of 4 career outings. Bob Winkelman's Paradise Lost ($5.60, Victor Kirby) won her Third Straight race in the overnight feature, the $13,750 Mares Open. Montrell Teague, Allan Davis, Victor Kirby and George Dennis each had three winners on the program. Corey Callahan had a double. by Matt Sparacino, for Harrington Raceway

HARRINGTON, Del. - Four $20,000 harness racing divisions of the first leg of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes for 2-year-old pacing fillies were contested Monday at Harrington Raceway. The top eight point-getters from the first two legs will return to compete in the $100,000 final on October 20. The fastest and most impressive winner of the divisions was Carter Racing Stable's Totally Rusty ($2.10, Corey Callahan) who broke her dam's (mom's) track record with a 1:54.1 decisive score. It was one of three wins on the card for trainer Doug Lewis. As the only foal for sire Rusty's For Real, Totally Rusty is 3-for-3 in her young career. After clearing the lead near the opening quarter-mile, Totally Rusty never relented in a visually impressive performance. Totally Rusty's dam, Rusty's Joy, co-held the track record with She's Everything and Little Bit Tricky of 1:55.4. It was one of three wins on the program for Callahan. Totally's Rusty's 1:54.1 mile also established a new stakes record. Gigi Deo ($2.10, Andrew McCarthy) notched her third win in four starts in her career in the first division for owner J&T Silva Stables, C&G Racing Stables, and Deo Volente Farms after a 1:56.3 triumph as the heavy favorite for trainer Aaron Lambert. The Riggins-sired filly was recently second with grand circuit fillies in the Kentuckiana at Hoosier Park (Indiana). In the only upset of the DSBF divisions, Gary Simpson and Eric Good's Puddle Jumper ($14.20, George Dennis) was victorious in 1:57.2. A daughter of Riggins, Puddle Jumper sat behind pacesetter Fancy Sound throughout before emerging down the passing lane late for a win over the latter. Love Forbidden was the overwhelming favorite and battled first over throughout but was unable to close ground late and finished third. Puddle Jumper was making her Third Straight for co-owner and trainer Simpson. The final division went to Joann Looney-King's Purrfect Bags ($2.10, Victor Kirby), who improved to 2-for-2 lifetime with a front end 1:57 victory over a pocket sitting Brian's Thunder. The Roddy's Bags Again filly is trained by Jim King Jr. Kirby had three winners on the card. In the overnight feature, Callahan piloted Lewis-trained Delaware Hanover ($4) for owner Howard Taylor to an off the pace score in 1:53 in the $13,750 Open II. by Matt Sparacino, for Harrrington Raceway
