Stella A, Zulu Win DSBF Finals

07/08/2020 5:28 PM -

Rod Allen Inc's Zulu ($5.40, Allen) and Linda Mac Donald's Stella A ($21.20, Ross Wolfenden) won their respective $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) finals for 3-year-old trotters Wednesday at Harrington Raceway.

 In the male division, Zulu went off as the 8/5 second choice and took advantage of miscues by fellow contenders Touch Of White, Riddle Me This, Rocky Bomber and Master Of Mine, all of whom broke stride, to prevail in wire-to-wire fashion in 1:59. Trained by his driver/owner Allen, the CR Commando-Cr Penny Lane gelding notched his 6th career win as his lifetime earnings soared over $100,000. Air Time was second and Rocky Bomber recovered from an early break to finish third.

 Meanwhile in the filly final, Stella A corralled early leader Orabelle near the three-quarters after a powerful first over brush and never relented in a one length score over Happy To Do It and Emmys Mayflower. The Anders Bluestone-Mocha filly notched her 4th career win for trainer Joe Mac Donald.

 The winning time tied the DSBF stakes mark for 3-year-old fillies set by Callmemza.
