There were three divisions each for colts and fillies. Badlands Racing and George Teague Jr.’s Three Martini’s ($4.40, Montrell Teague) was the fastest elimination winner with a 1:55.2 triumph. The Three Olives colt was also trained by co-owner George Teague.
Legacy Racing of Delaware, Neil Gargiulo and Louie Paglieriani’s Powerful Mist ($2.10, Jim Morand) won the first division in 1:56.3 for trainer Wayne Givens. The Powerful Toy colt improved to 4-for-8 lifetime in his career.
The third division was won by Ben Stafford’s Lucky Land ($3.80, Ben Stafford Jr.) in 1:57.4. The Badlands Hanover gelding set all the fractions for trainer Ben Stafford, who also had a win with Badlands Jenna ($7.40 Ben Stafford Jr.) in one of the filly eliminations. Owned by Ben Stafford and Winbak Farm, ‘Jenna’ earned her fifth win of the season.
Joann Looney-King’s Allie Oakley ($5.20, Tim Tetrick) took the first division for trainer Jim King Jr. A daughter of Badlands Hanover, she has won two of five career races.
