HARRINGTON, Del. - Though there is no harness racing standout in tonight's 13th Annual $150,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial at Harrington Raceway, the field is an accomplished bunch that is well traveled. With a horse from Canada, Ohio and several from the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, geographic diversity is prevalent in this year's Quillen. Post time for Harrington Raceway's 14-race program starts at 4:30 p.m. with pick four wagering in races 3 and 8. There are three Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) 2-year-old pacing divisions to augment the program, in addition to a $18,500 Open. The Quillen is the evening's 8th race, which is the biggest purse race of the day for harness racing in North America. Here are some notes on this year's Quillen field. 1 - Prairie Panther (6/1, Tyler Buter) - Enters off a 3rd place finish in the $100,000 Northeast Open Series final at Pocono Downs. The lone 5-year-old in the field has 10 wins this season and took his mark of 1:48.3 on July 27 at the Meadowlands. Trainer Michael Deters is making his first Quillen appearance. 2 - Sectionline Bigry (5/2, Tyler Smith) - Some may call him the "mystery horse" in the field with an impressive 18-11-2-3 slate this year. The 4-year-old has been the scourge of the Open ranks in Ohio but is relatively untested versus Monday's rivals. Trainer Steve Bauder is making his first Quillen appearance. 3 - Scott Rocks (12/1, Eric Goodell) - The elder statesman at age 9, finished second in last year's Quillen final and is the only previous Quillen entrant. He is one of 2 millionaires in the field and Is conditioned by Hunter Oakes. 4 - None Bettor A (3/1, Jason Bartlett) - He's banked a healthy $317,470 this year and has yet to finish off the board in 15 starts this year, 11 of those were victories. He is no stranger to half-mile racing and won the $200,000 Battle of Lake Erie earlier this year at Northfield Park. He is trained by Andrew Harris. 5 - American History (9/2, Joe Bongiorno) - From the powerful Tony Alagna barn, this 4-year-old has been razor sharp of late with a recent 1:50 win at Yonkers Raceway. Though he had a slow start to his 4-year-old season after a sophomore campaign when he banked more than $500,000, he has regained form of late should be one of the betting favorites. 6 - Slick Tony (12/1, Russell Foster) - The lone local horse in the field, the 4-year-old has won 2 straight impressively at Harrington and is the only horse in the field with a start over the track this season. He has won nearly half of his 62 career starts and is trained by his owner and breeder, George Leager of nearby Sudlersville, Md., a town with a diminutive population of about 500, known for being the birthplace of hall-of-fame baseball player Jimmie Foxx. 7 - Courtly Choice - (7/1, James Macdonald) - The Canadian 4-year-old sprung an upset in the Canadian Pacing Derby on 8/31 at Woodbine Mohawk Park and is still revered for his impressive Little Brown Jug win at age 3, in addition to a 1:47.1 win in the Meadowlands Pace. He is trained by Blake Macintosh. His $356,300 earned this year is the highest in the field. 8 - Backstreet Shadow (6/1, Tim Tetrick) - A mid-season acquisition for trainer Ron Burke, this 4-year-old has been a winning machine with 10 wins in 21 starts this year, including 5 straight in sub-1:50 times.

HARRINGTON, Del. - Some of harness racing's top aged pacers will battle in the 13th Annual $150,000 Bobby Quillen Memorial this Monday September 16 at Harrington Raceway. The race is named in honor of long time Delaware legislator Bobby Quillen, who passed away in 2006. Quillen was a regular at the racetrack who enjoyed coming to the races and was a board member of Harrington Raceway. The Quillen is carded as the 8th race on a 14-race program. The field is an accomplished bunch that includes Canadian Pacing Derby champ Courtly Choice (7/1, James Macdonald). Owned by Hutt Racing Stable, Mac and Heim Stables and Touchstone Farms, the 4-year-old Art Major stallion is still revered for his impressive Little Brown Jug win and Meadowlands Pace wins as a sophomore and has elevated his game nicely as a 4-year-old. Joe P Racing and Oldford Racing's None Bettor A (3/1, Jason Bartlett) has plenty of half-mile experience and his $317,470 in seasonal earnings is second only to Courtly Choice in the field. He recently won the $100,000 Great Northeast Open Series final at Pocono Downs on September 9. Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and J&T Silva's Backstreet Shadow (6/1, Tim Tetrick) hails from a barn that has won the most Quillen finals for trainer Ron Burke. Burke has had unparalleled success in the track's signature event, winning the Quillen on six previous occasions. Last year's Quillen runner up, Northfork Racing and Chuck Pompey's Scott Rocks (12/1, Eric Goodell), is back as the elder statesman in the field at age 9 and one of two million-dollar earners in the field. Local standout Slick Tony (12/1, Russell Foster) is fresh off two straight wins over the track and has racked up 28 wins in 62 lifetime starts. He is the only horse in the field who has a win over the track for owner/trainer George Leager.   Completing the field are Laurie Poulin and Mike Deters' Prairie Panther (6/1, Tyler Buter), Harold Bauder's Sectionline Bigry (5/2, Tyler Smith), and Brittany Farms, Marvin Katz and American History Racing's American History (9/2, Joe Bongiorno). The aforementioned American History has recently regained top form after a stellar sophomore season in which he banked $539,682 for trainer Tony Alagna. Sectionline Bigry may be dubbed the field's "mystery horse." The 4-year-old Pet Rock gelding has been the scourge of Open level events in Ohio and won an Ohio Sire Stakes event in a lifetime best of 1:49.2, but is relatively untested versus Monday's competition.   Racing fans will also have access to the richest Standardbred in harness racing history, Foiled Again, who will have a special "meet and greet" located in the parking lot west of the grandstand area at approximately 4:30 p.m. It is only fitting that the only 3-time winner of the Quillen Memorial be present the night of the race.   Also on the wagering card will be three $20,000 first leg divisions for 2-year-old pacers of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund. Two divisions with 15 combined male pacers will be contested in the 7th and 9th races, while one five horse filly division is on the card as the 13th, with one non-wagering event at 4:10 p.m. As is often the case with 2-year-olds, the fields feature many first time starters as only three horses have notched wins already in their career. Two Les Givens-trainees, American Nitro (Victor Kirby) and Bag Of Jewels (Kirby) and Virginia Louthan-trained Spin Sumthin (Foster) are the only freshmen with wins thus far among the lightly raced group.   Post time is 4:30 p.m.
