The second leg of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes for 3-year-old trotters was completed Wednesday at Harrington Raceway with four divisions heading to post.
Nanticoke Racing and Delbert Cain's Go Byem (Les Givens) completed a sweep of his eliminations with a dominant 1:56.3 triumph over Perfect Vangogh and Political Foe. The Impel Hanover gelding recorded his fifth win of the year for trainer Givens, who has three straight wins with his trotter.
The first filly division went to Charles Wimbrow and Jimmy Lunn's Silence Is Bliss ($3.80, Allan Davis) who was a repeat winner in 1:57.4, over Callmemza and I Got Spunk. Trained by Robert White, Silence Is Bliss is a daughter of Cr Commando.
The second filly division went to Marvin Meyer's Cuddle Punk ($2.80, Allan Davis) who was a decisive winner over Bella's Punkett and Sign N Drive. A daughter of Super Punk, Cuddle Punk became the third horse on the card to complete a sweep of their DSBF divisions. Cuddle Punk is trained by Joe King.
Egosnattitudes ($2.80, Jon Roberts) prevailed in the remaining colt and gelding division with a 2:00.2 victory for trainer and co-owner Bib Roberts. The Great George Two gelding was under careful handling early before overpowering the field late for a convincing win over Luck Dynasty and Win Power.
In the overnight feature on the program, Mike Casalino's Tough Mac ($2.80, Roberts) dominated a field of seven in the $16,000 Open Trot as he was a wire-to-wire winner over Six Gun Hall and Powerful Charger. Trained by Dylan Davis, it was the sixth win of the season for Tough Mac, a 6-year-old gelded son of Lockkeeper.
The $100,000 DSBF finals will take place on Governor's Day during the Delaware State Fair July 30 with a special 7 p.m. post time as part of a stakes-laden program with total purses in excess of $600,000.
