HARRINGTON, Del. - Harrington Raceway's 73rd season of live harness racing kicked off Monday with a 12-race program that saw wind gusts up to 40 miles per hour.

Inside horses ruled the program as horses from post three or better won 10 of 12 races.

Not until the seventh race, the $15,000 featured Delaware Special did a horse outside post three reign victorious. George Leager's Slick Tony ($23.20, Russell Foster), who started from post position four was a 1:54 winner over Daiymir and Q's Cruise. The Leager-trainee notched his third win of the year after nabbing the lead late and holding off a late charge from Daiymir.

It wasn't until race 11 that a horse outside post four prevailed when Silver Fox J ($7, Mike Cole) triumphed.

Victor Kirby had a driving triple, while last year's leading trainer/driver combination of Joe Columbo and Mike Cole each had a double.

Live racing will continue on a Monday through Wednesday schedule
