HARRINGTON, Del. – Lloyd Arnold’s Delightful Diva ($26, Tony Morgan) scored a wire-to-wire win Tuesday at Harrington Raceway in the featured $25,000 Mares Open.
The Tim Crissman-trainee left the gate alertly from post two and set all the fractions in her two length win over Apache Dame and VC Atom N. It was her sixth win of the year as her seasonal earnings surpassed $75,000.
18-year-old driver Montrell Teague registered his first ever driving triple on the program. Teague, son of one of the sport’s top trainers, George Teague, drove two of his father’s horses to victory (Firiel Hanover, Mozzi Hanover) and also Jason and Stanley Johnson’s Mememe in the second race.
Driver Ross Wolfenden won four races and further secured his spot as the second leading driver in the standings behind Tony Morgan. Jim Morand is currently third. Tim Crissman has the training title locked up with 90 wins, while brothers Wayne (72) and Les Givens (64) round out the top three.
