Tough Challenger sets track record Wednesday

Nanticoke Racing and Jim Morand's Tough Challenger ($5.60) broke Harrington Raceway longest standing track record Wednesday with a 1:57.1 win in the subfeatured $19,000 Jr. Open Trot.
 Driven by Morand for trainer Les Givens, the 3-year-old You Betcha colt broke a 12-year-old mark that was held by Jabaca (Jack Parker Jr., 1:57.3) in 1998 by scoring a front-stepping win in his Harrington debut. Tough Challenger is off to a great start and improved to 15 for 20 in his career.
 In the $22,000 Open Trot, Amy and Steward Oldford's Nordic Venture ($5, 1:57.3, Vince Copeland) earned his eighth win of the year over Spunky Vic and Gurf.
 Ross Wolfenden and Victor Kirby each had three driving winners on the program.
