Harrington, DE--For the third straight night at Harrington Raceway, Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) horses headlined the program on Tuesday (June 5), as this time the 3-year-old pacing fillies were in action in three $20,000 eliminations.
Driver Ross Wolfenden stole the sophomore pacers' thunder by winning eight races on the Harrington program, a track record for a 13-race card.
One of Wolfenden’s wins came with DSBF pacing filly Here’s My Ticket ($2.20), who was an overwhelming favorite and raced like it in her two-length win over Macs Journey and Ann’s Obsession in the final DSBF elimination in 1:56.2. Owned and trained by Eli Scott, the Three Olives filly was never headed in her wire-to-wire win. She was the fastest of the three divisions as Norma Messick and Tim Torbert’s Roddy’s Girl ($3.20, Vince Copeland, 1:57.1) and Ed Walls’ Designer Bags ($11.40, Allan Davis, 1:57.1) won the remaining two splits, respectively.
The pacing fillies will return to compete in round two of DSBF action next Tuesday June 12, before the $100,000 final event on July 26.
Wolfenden win’s parade Tuesday began with a win in the second race with Te’s Cammie ($2.40), one of three winners trained by John Cabot, followed by a win in the fourth with Funtime Filly ($13.20). He then won with Touch the Clouds ($12.80) in the sixth race, and Liqueur ($4.60) in the eighth. Dreamluck ($2.40) gave Wolfenden his fifth win on the program in the ninth race, before winning the next three races with Best Route ($18), Here’s My Ticket ($2.20) and Keystone Rhythm ($2.20).
