Harrington, DE --- George and Tina Dennis and The Wiz Kids Stable’s I’m Won Rum Wiser ($4.40, George Dennis) improved to four-for-four in her young career with a win in the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund $100,000 final for 2-year pacing fillies on Monday (Oct. 21) at Harrington Raceway in 1:57.1.
|I'm Won Rum Wiser (#4) was a narrow winner in the DSBF final over Crushed Again (#5).|
I’m Won Rum Wiser grinded away first-over at pacesetter Seboomook Fool Yah, who strolled through fractions of :28.1, :58.1 and 1:27.3.
I’m Won Rum Wiser edged clear at the wire and held off a fierce late rally by Crushed Again, who was second. Seboomook Fool Yah was third in an incredibly tight photo finish.
Trained by co-owner/driver Dennis, I’m Won Rum Wiser is a homebred out of Dennis’ broodmare La Gloria Cubana and sire Headmaster, whom Wiz Kids Stable owner Frank Deliberti owned until recently.
In the overnight feature, Jlrl LLC’s Rock On Moe ($13.40, Allan Davis) captured the $19,000 Open in wire-to-wire fashion in 1:54.1 for trainer Rosemary Smutz.
Earlier on the program, Elizabeth and Bret Brittingham’s Raritan Bay (Bret Brittingham) won his ninth consecutive race for trainer Don Brittingham.
The pacing colts will take center stage Tuesday on the Harrington program as arch-rivals Elite Awards (5-2) and Hawker (3-1) are set to match-up in a field of eight in their $100,000 DSBF final, scheduled 10th on the 15-race program.
Wednesday will feature the trotting finals for fillies and colts as the Harrington meet winds down its final week of racing for 2013.
