HARRINGTON, Del - Frank Chick's Awsome Valley ($14.60, Tony Morgan) notched his 35th harness racing career win in upset fashion Wednesday at Harrington Raceway with a 1:54.1 victory in the $16,000 Open Trot.

Awsome Valley led the field of seven through an opening quarter mile of 28 seconds. The 8-year-old trotter marched to the half-mile unchallenged to a half-mile in 57 seconds before Celebrity Pegasus gathered momentum around a tiring Theresdemoninme and got within two lengths to three-quarters in 1:25.3.

Awsome Valley drew away with ease in the stretch as Celebrity Pegasus went off stride and Wind Of the North, last week's winner, rallied into second. Five Towns was third.

Awsome Valley, a son of Valley Victor trained by Kevin Lare, surpassed the $500,000 mark in career earnings.
