Michael Casalino Jr. and Dylan Davis' Theresademoninme (Jim Morand, $2.80) won his third straight race in the $15,000 Open trot Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.
Theresademoninme left the gate from post position three at odds of 2-to-5 and marched through fractions of 27.3, 56.2 and 1:25.2 as I Like My Boss applied pressure and eventually yielded. Theresademoninme then opened up four lengths on the field as Royal Becca J outkicked I Like My Boss for the place spot.
Trained by Dylan Davis, the winner surpassed his 2015 win total by earning his sixth win of the year.
After the fourth race, a moment of silence was held to honor the memory of popular Delaware horseman Ben Stafford Jr., who passed away on July 6. Stafford was a well liked member of the local racing community who had trained horses with his father for nearly 30 years and had driven such quality horses as Mudslide, Badlands and Art and Badlands Jenna, just to name a few. A large contingent consisting of friends, family and members of the horsemen community showed their support in the winner's circle to honor Stafford's memory.
