DOVER, Del.----- Logan's Girl fought off several challenges on the way to score her seventh win of the year turning back seven rivals for a 1:55 harness racing victory in the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund $100,000 Final on a breezy and cold Tuesday, Nov. 22 at Dover Downs.

Ross Wolfenden got the Roddy's Bags Again-All Italian filly away quickly and held on to win and notch both DSBF 2016 two-year-old filly pace titles - last October at Harrington and now at Dover Downs - raising her first-season bankroll to $140,250 for owner JoAnn Looney-King. Wolfenden drove both major wins for trainer Jim King. Magicinthemoonlite and Yannick Gingras was second nipping the Vic Kirby-driven Spanish Dream, who started from post 8, for place. Spinpressive (Corey Callahan) was fourth. It was Wolfenden's second win of the day. He drove Danish N Coffee in 1:56.1, one of trainer Joe Hundertpfund's three wins.

Diva Demands pulled off a 7-1 surprise to win the $20,000 DSBF consolation for owner-trainer George "Major" Leager. The Roddy's Bags Again-Me In The Spotlite brown filly broke her "maiden" with the 1:58 victory. Lillisbagsrpacked (Kirby) was second with KJ Dale (Gingras) third.

Allan Davis chalked up his third winner on the card steering Legacy Racing's Empress Deo to a front-end 1:52.3 score in the $20,000 Filly and Mare Open Handicap. Elliesjet N (Jonathan Roberts) closed along the passing lane for second with Miss Me Yet (Montrell Teague) the show horse. Davis began his triple driving 19-1 Party Rockin to victory in a $10,000 Claiming pace.

Along with Davis and trainer Joe Hundertfund's three wins; Yannick Gingras; Jonathan Roberts; owners-trainers Josh Green, JoAnn Looney-King and Jim king, and owner Bill Sartin, had two winners each.

The last of the four DSBF $100,000 finals is on for Wednesday featuring two-year-old filly trotters.
