Freshman pacing fillies were in action in three $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) 1st leg divisions Tuesday at Harrington Raceway.
In the first division, Gty Stable's Gaitway Gal ($2.80, Pat Berry) improved to 3-for-4 lifetime with a comfortable 1:57.4 score over Mistatude and Tahoe. The Delmarvalous filly was a confident winner on the front for trainer Jeff Smith.
Favorites continued to dominate as 1-to-9 favorite Shabby Chic ($2.10, Tim Tetrick) was an easy winner over Bank The Win and Cowgirl Coffee in 1:57.2 in the second split. The Mike Hall-trainee improved to 3-for-3 lifetime. The Badlands Hanover filly was under tight reign in the stretch for a confident score.
In the remaining DSBF division, George Teague Jr.'s Ky-Ky ($2.40, Montrell Teague) led all the way in an 2:01 win over RJ's Angel and Hearty Dragon. A daughter of Southwind Lynx, it was the first career win for Ky-Ky, who is trained by Clyde Francis.
On the undercard, Soho Burning Love ($3.40, Victor Kirby) was a 1:52.2 winner over Sunny Dee and Western Secret in the $20,000 Mares Open. Owned by Jo Ann Looney-King, Brian Carsey and Jeff Fought Racing, it was the 8th win of the year for trainer Jim King Jr. for the 7-year-old Auckland Reactor mare.
