Owner Jo Ann Looney-King, trainer Jim King, Jr. and driver Victor Kirby swept all three $20,000 divisions of the second leg of the Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund stakes Tuesday at Harrington Raceway.

King's Lillisbagsrpacked ($3, Victor Kirby) prevailed in the first split in 1:55.1 over Giga Spin and A Lady Sizzling. Trained by Jim King, Jr., the daughter of Roddys Bags Again notched her third career win.

The same connections prevailed in the second division with Logans Girl ($2.40, Kirby) who was a 1:55 winner over Lunar Phase and Diva Demands. The Roddys Bags Again filly completed a sweep of her elimination divisions, as she did at Dover Downs before finishing second in the $100,000 final on April 11.

The King connection struck again in the final division with a 1:55.1 win with Spanish Dream ($11.40), who narrowly defeated Free Flight Fran, who had won five straight, and Westwind Roddylee.

The $100,000 DSBF finals will be contested on July 27 during the Delaware State Fair.

Allan Davis and Tony Morgan joined Kirby with a driving triple. Roberts had a double.

One of the races not won by King, Kirby, Morgan or Davis was the overnight feature, in which Mike Hall's St Kitts ($38, Jon Roberts) won the $16,000 Mares Open in 1:53.1 for trainer Doug Lewis.

Four divisions of DSBF three-year-old trotters will headline the Wednesday program.
