Harrington Hosts DSBF Finals

Delaware’s top two-year-olds were showcased Monday in four $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) final events at Harrington Raceway.

Trainer Les Givens continued his dominance with the young trotters, by sweeping both the filly and colt finals. Both winners were driven by Ross Wolfenden.

Givens-trained Alleigh Girl ($2.40, Wolfenden) cruised to a five-length win over Jodi Lin and Jas Charmer in 2:01.3 in the filly trotting final. The Don Boss Vita filly completed a sweep of her three DSBF races.

“I thought this filly may be able to trot in 2:02 so she beat that tonight,” said Givens. “We were able to get a good trip and she responded.”

Alleigh Girls’ stablemate, Windshield ($3.00, Wolfenden) was not to be outdone, as the Political Briefing colt set a new track record for two-year-old trotting colts in his 1:59.3 victory in colt final. Windshield overcame some anxious moments at the start when he was caught four-wide into the first turn while pacesetter Spunky Jack rolled to early fractions of :28.3 and :58.3. Spunky Jacks once big lead quickly evaporated as Windshield mounted his attack approaching three quarters and went by the leader and drew clear for a commanding win. Spunky Jack held second while Left Alone Ranger finished third. Windshield, a Political Briefing colt, is owned by Wolfenden and Nanticoke Racing.

“Only anxious moment was how far Vince was out in front, but he made it up good,” said Wolfenden. “Whether or not he had much left I don’t know but he was quite comfortable.”

On the pacing side, Gary and Barbara Iles’ Shaving Mug ($2.60, Montrell Teague) notched a decisive 1:55 win in the colt final. The Badlands Hanover colt set all the fractions and was well clear of second place Ladys Bag Man and Flying Instructor, who was third. Trained by George Teague, Shaving Mug has won three straight.

“He was really good again tonight,” said Montrell Teague. “He’s done everything really easy so far.”

Ed Walls’ Designer Bags ($9.40, Allan Davis) was the only non-favourite to win a final, with a 1:56.1 triumph. The Roddys Bags Again filly assumed command from early leader No Picnic and cruised to a two length win over that rival and Mama Said. The winner has won 5-of-7 starts in her career for trainer David Rearic.

“She’s a nice filly to drive and I appreciate the opportunity,” said Davis. “She’s a nice filly.”

It was the first win in a $100,000 event for both Davis and Rearic.

“We’re excited,” said Rearic. “We owe a little bit to Gordon Corey because he prepped her for us and did a great job.”

“It feels great, she’s a special horse to me,” said owner Walls, who bred Designer Bags. “We just got lucky.”
