g>DOVER, Del--- Arguably the finest group of Delaware sired three-year-old male pacers led off the first of two $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) preliminary legs on Monday, March 23.

Ray's Big Bubba scored the most impressive victory in his $20,000 DSBF sophomore first leg pace. Ross Wolfenden took the Badlands Hanover -Miss Rae colt to front early and kept extending the margin in a 1:52.2 score for Rae Sullivan, Jay Leonard and Richards Stables.


Scott Gregoire trains the winner of his first three-year-old start and seventh in 11 lifetime outings. Prince Of Badlands (Eddie Davis Jr.) was runner-up. Get Jazzed (Jeff Fout), a Three Wizzards offspring, was the show finisher.

PT Stable's Al Ibad Spider sat second for Eric Goodell until turning for home where the Badlands Hanover-Ali Shyba gelding roared past prohibitive 0favorite Zee Barber (Jim Morand) for a 1:53.1 victory. Sgt Charlie (Corey Callahan) was third. All three finishers were sired by Badlands Hanover.

A pair of sons of Three Olives took the other DSBF $20,000 prelims. Barbara Gannon's Everlasting Pride notched a decisive 1:54.3 win besting a pair of Badlands Hanover sophs, race favorite Mr. Wiggles (Callahan) with Badlands Pete (Morgan) the third horse. The victory keeps the Three Olives-Ladyshooter gelding unbeaten in 2009 with his fourth straight win and seventh win in eight lifetime races.

Joe Eisenhower's Three Ten, a Three Olives-Future Forecast-colt, teamed with Ron Pierce for a 1:55.4 victory in the other DSBF prelim.

The second leg DSBF colt prelims are set for next Monday.
