HARRINGTON, DE – The apex of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund harness racing season for 3-year-olds will headline the week of racing for July 6-8 at Harrington Raceway with four $100,000 finals. The top Delaware-sired male pacers will battle Monday, female pacers on Tuesday and trotters (both sexes) will compete Wednesday. Jo Ann Looney-King’s Apple Valley Art (3/2, Tim Tetrick) is the clear favorite in the colt and gelding pacing division after sweeping his eliminations in decisive fashion for trainer Jim King Jr. The Artzina-Shake Away gelding drew post four and will pursue his third career win in just four lifetime starts. He suffered an injury that shortened his 2-year-old season but has come back in fine fashion for one of the nation’s top stables, the husband and wife team of Jim and Jo Ann Looney-King who campaigned 2019 Dan Patch Horse of the Year Shartin N and 2-year-old pacing filly of the year Lyons Sentinel. Henry Faragalli III, Nanticoke Racing, Arthur Feeney and Daniel Doane’s American Nitro (5/2, Victor Kirby) is among the rivals who will try to foil the favorite’s bid. Trained by Les Givens, the Badlands Nitro-Jet American gelding easily won his split last week and was the 2-year-old DSBF champ. Tuesday’s filly pacing final will feature Legacy Racing of Delaware’s Cinder Rock (7/5, Allan Davis), who has been the indisputable scourge of the division with more than $150,000 in career earnings for trainer Wayne Givens. Though she was upset by Brenda Teague’s She’s Got The Lynx (7/2, Montrell Teague) in her first leg elimination, Cinder Rock quickly rebounded with a 10 length romp in her 2nd leg split. The Rockabillie-Cinderella filly has won 7 of 9 lifetime starts. Wednesday’s trotting finals appear to be much more unpredictable as all four race favorites were beaten in the 2nd leg. The colt and gelding final, slated 4th on the program, will see three different elimination winners among a highly competitive group. Jane Dunavant’s Riddle Me This (Ross Wolfenden), Breakaway Racing’s Touch Of White (Corey Callahan) and Ben Brooks’ Master Of Mine (Victor Kirby) all had their pictures taken in elimination events. Master Of Mine, a Master Lavec-Dilly Dally Delia gelding, was the only one to sweep his eliminations, both from the rail. Trained by John Wilkerson, Master Of Mine went winless in his 2-year-old season but has stamped himself as a leading contender heading into Wednesday’s final. There’s also a pair of commonly-owned rivals who had ample success as freshmen, Dunavant’s Air Time (Art Stafford Jr.) and Chauffeur (Driver TBA), who were competitive in their respective eliminations. Dunavant has 3 horses in the final, all sired by Dusty Winner and trained by Carlo Poliseno. The filly trotting final pits four different elimination winners to match up among the contentious field. Linda Mac Donald’s Stella A (Ross Wolfenden), Eric Foster’s Emmys Mayflower (Russell Foster), Shirley Shand’s Blue Carats (Roger Plante Jr.) and Providence West Inc.’s Alert (Kim Vincent) each were victorious through the course of two elimination legs. Meanwhile, Ed Kimmel and Don Wiest’s Orabelle (Tony Morgan) was the 2-year-old champ and would have an opportune time to achieve her first win of the season. Post time nightly is 4:30 p.m. Spectators are not permitted in the grandstand at present time, however, Murphy’s Race and Sports Book, the on-site simulcast facility is open on the 2nd floor of the grandstand for simulcasting and dining. Sports wagering is currently unavailable. by Matt Sparacino, for Harrington Raceway

For Blue Carats, it was her first lifetime win for trainer John Rinnier. The Anders Bluestone-Victory Starburst filly is a full sister to former DSBF champ Star Sapphire, who was owned by the late Marv Bachrad, the long-time head of publicity at Dover Downs who is in the Communicators Corner of the Harness Racing Hall of Fame.

Trained by Vincent, the Xactly Hanover-Mitsou Hanover filly was a wire-to-wire winner, collecting her second career win. Emmy's Mayflower, last week's elimination winner and 2-year-old DSBF champ, was the 1-to-9 favorite. The $100,000 DSBF trotting finals will be contested on July 8. In the overnight feature, the $11,000 Open Trot, Brian Carsey, Adam Friedland and Casey Myers Bluebird Jesse ($5.40, Allan Davis) triumphed in 1:55.3 over Photo Bomber and Gillie The Kid.

HARRINGTON, Del. - Although a lot will be different when Harrington Raceway opens without spectators for its 74th season of live harness racing Monday June 15, some things will remain familiar. Most notably perhaps is the return of 2019 Delaware Valley USHWA Harrington Raceway horse of the meet Slick Tony (7/2, Russell Foster), who is slated to make his first start since March 5 in the featured $10,000 Open Pace, the 5th race on the 9-race card. Owned by his breeder/trainer George Leager, the 5-year-old No Spin Zone stallion is a graduate of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund program, which jumpstarted his $670,043 in career earnings. A 16-time winner last year, he banked $231,449 as a 4-year-old and despite the COVID-19 related disruption to racing, he remains on track for another $100,000 season. Slick Tony will face a quality field of 8, which is the anchor leg of the early pick four wager (races 2-5). Another regular sighting will be the return of last year's driving champ, Art Stafford Jr., who had a career year in 2019 and has 5 drives on the card. Two-time defending leading trainer Joe Columbo will have a busy night with 5 entries from his stable. All of the Columbo-trained entries will be driven by former track driving champ Mike Cole, who is part of a formidable driving colony opening the meet. Tim Tetrick, who was recently voted into the Harness Racing Hall of Fame, will compete in all 9 races on the opening card. Many of his drives will come from the uber powerful barn of Joanne and Jim King Jr., who trained 2019 Dan Patch Horse of the Year, Shartin N. Last year was a landmark year for Harrington-based horses, as the town with a population of less than 4,000 has become a hot bed for harness racing talent with prior champions like Wiggle It Jiggleit, Rainbow Blue and Adios Harry, just to name a few. Its most recent success stories from 2019 are Lather Up, who raced out of the George Teague stable for trainer Clyde Francis stabled on the east side of Harrington, is the co-fastest horse in the sport's history with a 1:46 win at the Meadowlands and the aforementioned Shartin N who not only was the Horse of the Year, but is also the sport's fastest mare ever. Not to be outdone was 2-year-old pacing filly of the year Lyons Sentinel - who is also trained by the King Jr. barn, located on the west side of town. Post time for the Monday program is 4:30 p.m. Live racing will continue on a Monday through Wednesday schedule through July 15. There will be a break in the schedule before resuming on August 17.
