The 3rd Annual Bobby Quillen Memorial’s eliminations at Harrington Raceway were contested Monday as Mister Big ($2.40, Brian Sears) and Foiled Again ($4.60, Yannick Gingras) each won their respective divisions.

The Ron Burke-trained Foiled Again set all the fractions in his 1:51 victory over a game Won the West and Lucky Man. Four Trumps A finished fourth and also earned a berth in next Monday’s $327,000 Final. Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and Jjk Stables’ Foiled Again has enjoyed a banner 2009 campaign with nearly $600,000 in seasonal earnings.

Meanwhile Joseph Muscara’s superstar pacer Mister Big inched closer to his pursuit of Gallo Blue Chip's earnings record with a 1:53.1 victory in the second elimination. The Virgil Morgan Jr.-trainee wired the field of pacers and won by two lengths over Blueridge Western, who was placed fourth for interference, but still secured a slot in the Quillen final. BB Torio was placed second, while Mccedes moved up to third.

“He felt good tonight,“ said Sears. “I just hope we draw well in the final.”

Monday, October 26 will be a monumental night of racing as four $100,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) final events for 2-year-olds will be contested, on the same program that will include the $327,000 Quillen Memorial Final.
