George Leager's Slick Tony completed a sweep of his Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund three-year-old eliminations at Harrington Raceway Monday with a 1:53.1 win in the first of two $20,000 divisions.

The No Spin Zone colt has dominated the DSBF ranks, with 13 wins in 17 career starts. Sent off as the 1-9 favourite, Slick Tony ($2.10, Russell Foster) cruised to an easy win over Cinder Block and GWT for owner/trainer Leager. He will undoubtedly be the favourite in the $100,000 final on July 26.

In the second division for colts and geldings, Jo Ann Looney-King's Evolution Tour ($4, Tim Tetrick) prevailed in 1:53.3. The Roddys Bags Again gelding held off a late charge from Transitioning Joy to pickup his eighth career win for trainer Jim King, Jr. Sea Bags was third.

In the overnight feature, the $15,000 Open for pacers, Arthur Stafford and Arthur Stafford, Jr.'s Blazing Bobby Sox ($6, Stafford, Jr.) notched his fourth straight win. Trained by his co-owner and driver, the seven-year-old The Panderosa gelding led most of the mile in achieving his eighth win of the year. Mel Mara was second with Little Ben third.

Owner Howard Taylor won three races on the program. Ross Wolfenden had three driving wins.
