Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund action continued at Harrington Raceway on Wednesday, June 15, with four divisions for three-year-old trotters taking their turn over Delaware's half-mile racetrack in their respective $20,000 elimination legs.

James Craparotta and Pat Berry Racing's Epic Smash ($2.40, Berry) held serve as the favourite in the first division for fillies with a 1:59.4 victory over Miss Baltimore and Jasmine K. Epic Smash, a daughter of Political Briefing, received a pocket trip behind Miss Baltimore before finding clearance in the stretch. The win was the sixth in 18 lifetime starts for Epic Smash, who was trained by Traci Berry.

Jane Dunavant's Cicadas Song ($2.10, Carlo Poliseno) was an expected dominant winner in 1:59.3 over Chestnut Chic and U Simple Thing. Trained by her driver, the daughter of Dusty Winner earned her 10th win from 14 lifetime starts.

In the first division for colts and geldings, Chris Yochim's Mondello ($4, Art Stafford Jr.) prevailed in 2:00 over Rojo and Seafood Scrappy. Trained by Daryl Glazer, the Taladega colt brushed to the front near the opening quarter-mile and never relented for his fourth lifetime win from 18 starts.

The second division saw heavily favoured Chipoffthewall ($2.10, Tony Morgan) triumph in 2:01 for owner/trainer Syl King Jr. over Elton J and Mr Paul. The Master Lavec-sired gelding recorded his ninth win in 17 career starts.

James Moore III's Royal Becca J ($28.40, Jack Parker Jr.) won the overnight feature, the $16,000 Open Trot, in 1:56.3 over Theresademoninme and Awsome Valley.
