04/20/2022 6:13 PM -

Ginger Tree Skyr ($10, Corey Callahan) won the Wednesday $15,000 feature for trotters at Harrington Raceway in 1:56.

 Owned by Nick Callahan, Yorwollan Racing Team and Gregory Godbout, the 6-year-old Explosive Matter gelding led most of the way and held off a fierce stretch kick from Remarkable De Vie for his 3rd win of the year. Ginger Tree Skyr is trained by co-owner Nick Callahan. 

 In a continued pursuit of 17,000 career wins, driver Tony Morgan won his 16,998th and 16,999th race aboard Command The Market ($9.20) in the ninth and Air Time ($22.60) in the 14th. Morgan will be competing at Harrah’s Philadelphia Thursday and Sunday before returning to drive at Harrington on Monday.

 Bonjour Mary Ellen ($4.60, Jim Morand) started the card with a maiden-breaking win for trainer Les Givens and owners Nanticoke Racing, Jim Magno, and Joe Fonte. The Charlie De Vie gelding was a wire-to-wire winner with his namesake, harness racing fan Mary Ellen Black in attendance. Black's son is long time racing writer Ted Black. 

 Live racing will continue on a Monday through Wednesday schedule.
