In an upset laden program, Gary Ewing's Sweet Bobbie ($40, Art Stafford Jr.) prevailed in the $16,000 Mares Open Tuesday at Harrington Raceway.
The 4-year-old Art Major mare received a pocket trip for the second straight week and again she responded with a win for her owner/trainer Ewing. Sweet Bobbie surged in mid stretch to grab the lead and held off a late charging Shine N Shimmer, and third place pacesetter Elliesjet N.
It was the fifth win of the year for the winner.
Long shot winners were a common theme on a program that also produced bombs away winners such as Northern Rocknroll ($49.40, Tony Morgan) and Allisa Page ($30.60 , Russell Foster).
The meet's leading driver, Tony Morgan, had a big night with five winners.
