“Marvelous Marvin” Raber scored his second consecutive victory in the C.K.G. Billings Harness Driving Midwest Region Series #2 when he reined Soulful Delight to a 2:02 triumph at the Darke County Fair in Greenville, Ohio on Friday afternoon, August 22.

After being carried to the quarter in :29.3 before taking command, Raber’s trotter then raced strongly on the front-end and held off a late charge from What Do You Want and driver Larry “Ace” Steenbergen for a neck victory. Third place went to Really Really Sweet, driven by “Trader Bud” Hatfield.

On Monday afternoon, August 18, both Raber and Soulful Delight were victorious in a time of 2:09.3 at the Muskingum County Fair in Zanesville, Ohio. And at both aforementioned venues, Raber had a driving double on each card.

However, if one goes back to August 8, they’ll find that the Marvelous one copped the $10,000 Midwest Region Series #1 Final at the Meadows when he scored a 1:57.1 triumph with Catching Katie after being the points champ in that earlier Midwest Region series.

Raber is enjoying his best season in the sulky and he is the current points leader in the Midwest Series #2. He’s coasting along with a 0.392 UDR on the strength of nine wins, six seconds and three thirds in 34 starts.
