Harrington, DE --The second leg of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) Stakes for 2-year-old trotters was contested in five divisions at Harrington Raceway on Wednesday.

The fillies were the first to take to the track in two divisions featured second and fourth on the 15-race program.

The first division was also the second fastest on the program as owner, trainer and driver Bryan Truitt’s Way Over Paid ($4.00) atoned for a break last week at odds on with a wire-to-wire win in 2:02.1. The Giant Hit-sired filly assumed command early from post two and never looked back in her open lengths win over Kelsey’s Commando.

Art Stafford Jr. and Wyatt Starkey’s Overnight Hit ($24.00, Stafford Jr.) scored an upset in the second division, in 2:04.3. The daughter of Giant Hit capitalized on a break in stride early by the heavily favored Canterbury Girl. Pacesetter Classy N Quik was running on fumes in the stretch and Overnight Hit charged home on top over Bella’s Punkin. Stafford Jr. also trains the freshman trotter.

Owner, trainer and driver Carlo Poliseno’s Briefs Or Boxers ($3.80) took the first colt division in 2:05.3. The Political Briefing gelding sat in the pocket behind the pacesetter, Boo’s The Boss, throughout before surging by in the stretch for an open lengths win. Boo’s The Boss held second.

Call Me Hal was the fastest winner on Wednesday
Winbak Farm’s Call Me Hal ($2.80, Jeff Fout) was the fastest winner among the 2-year-old trotters, as he prevailed in dominant fashion in 2:02. The CR Commando gelding was a wire-to-wire winner over What A Hit. Trained by driver Fout, it was Call Me Hal’s first lifetime win in three starts.

The final division was an eventful one as the favored LG’s Pride was taken out of contention early when fellow contender Winbak Charles M went off-stride at the start and carried him wide into the first turn. Meanwhile, Syl King’s Whichwayrightrleft ($23.20, Ross Wolfenden) was sent immediately for the lead and never relented in his 2:03 triumph over Bosston Bnz. LG’s Pride finished fourth but was placed third ahead of Winbak Charles M for interference.

Montrell Teague and Jon Roberts each had two wins on the program.
