Just eight days from their $100,000 final event, three $20,000 elimination divisions were held Tuesday at Harrington Raceway for Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund two-year-old pacing colts and geldings.

Carter Racing Stable's Rusty Carter ($11.20, Corey Callahan) was the fastest winner with a 1:55.3 victory in his split over round one elimination winners All Artist and Hail To The Master, who rounded out the trifecta.

Rusty Carter, a son of Art Director, chipped away first-over at the leaders before edging clear in the stretch for his first career win.

Pam Wagner's Canthelpbutwin ($7, Victor Kirby) was victorious in the second division with a pocket trip for trainer Josh Green. The gelded son of Artzina surged by a game pacesetter Cut the Beach late for a narrow win. Power to Perform was third. It was a maiden-breaking triumph for the winner.

The final DSBF division saw Willard Hall and Brian Wright's Sizz Matty ($4, George Dennis) as a handy winner in 1:57.3 over Steller City and All Music. The Life Sizzles colt, Sizz Matty, notched his third straight win, including a sweep of his eliminations for trainer Wright.

Kirby and Dennis each had four winners on the program.

There will be a showcase of Delaware's top-bred horses on October 21 with four $100,000 DSBF finals, as well as $20,000 consolation events.
