Z's Dream, Subban Win DSBF Splits

09/28/2020 3:18 PM -

Leonard Hubbard's Z's Dream ($2.80, Art Stafford Jr.) and Mst Racing Inc. and George Teague's Subban ($3.60, Montrell Teague) each won their respective $20,000 divisions in the second leg of Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes action for 2-year-old colt and gelding pacers Monday at Harrington Raceway.

 The top eight point earners from all divisions will return to compete in the $100,000 final events on October 7.

 Z's Dream led in wire-to-wire fashion from the rail for trainer Andrew Stafford as the Dream Away gelding completed a sweep of his eliminations. Squeak On By was second with Marvelous Winner third. 

 Subban, a Clyde Francis-trainee and son of Southwind Lynx,, sat in the pocket behind pacesetter Syndergaard - who was bidding for an elimination sweep - throughout before surging by when given clearance in the stretch. Syndergaard held second with Can't Get Right, also trained by Francis, third.

 Teague, who won four races, was back in the winner's circle in the next race with Legacy Racing and Reginald Hazzard II's Inforce ($5.20), who was a 1:53.3 winner in the overnight feature, a $14,000 claiming handicap for $25,000 to $30,000 claimers for trainer Wayne Givens.

 Teague also owns Goldberg ($4.40), whom he piloted in the sub-featured $13,500 conditioned pace to a 1:53.1 win over Calvin K and Keep On Rocking A. 

 Three of Teague's wins came aboard Francis-trainees.

 Stafford Jr. and Russell Foster had a driving double.
