Pair of $100,000 DSBF frosh filly finals Saturday at Dover
Dover, DE --- Badlands Jenna and Tokyo Oklahoma, winners of both their DSBA preliminaries, lead eight starters in the two Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund 2-year-old filly pace and trot finals which headline the Saturday (Dec. 4) card at Dover Downs. First post is 5:30 p.m.
In the filly pace championship, Ben Stafford and Winbak Farm’s Badlands Jenna brings a sparking freshman record of eight wins in 10 races, including the $100,000 DSBF final at Harrington in late October, to this final.
Devil May Care, owned by trainer-driver John Wagner and Winbak Farm, was a wire-to-wire winner in her $20,000 prelim last week. Stash The Cash with Daryl Bier driving for trainer Jeff Long and Warren Racing Stable has been second in both her prelims. JoAnn King’s homebred Sarah Barracuda, driven by Jim King, won a first leg prelim.
The other contestants are GTY Stable’s Final Execution with Ross Wolfenden; Woogen, Messinger and Shapiro’s Winsmith Jess with Vic Kirby; Troy and Todd Tribbett’s Bad Barbara with Brad Hanners; and starting from outside post eight is Carter and Myers Racing stables’ What Rusty handled by Eddie Davis, Jr.
Ben Kenny’s Tokyo Oklahoma (John Wagner) won both her DSBF filly trot prelims. Nanticole Racing and driver Jim Morand’s Overnight Command and Allan Pullman, Kathy and driver Eddie Davis’ SBs Commando each had a prelim win while Serendipity Stable’s Political Starlet (Ross Shand), the Harrington Final winner, and trainer Jay Baxter’s Montabello Brandi (Vince Copeland) finished second in both their prelims.
Completing the lineup are Eli Beiler’s Joyful Anna (Carlo Poliseno), Chris Smalfus and John Rinnier’s Lady Alica (Kim Vincent) and Now Virginia (Brad Hanners), racing for LeBlanc Racing and Winbak Farm.
Also on the card, JoAnn King’s Allie Aoakley leads a field of six in a $20,000 DSBF consolation pace.
