Published: September 19, 2018 09:17 pm EDT

Andrew Glassmeyer's Embrace The Grind ($2.80, Jonathan Roberts) was the fastest of three Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) elimination winners for two-year-old trotters Wednesday at Harrington Raceway with a 2:00.2 triumph.

The Keystone Activator gelding headed the first division for male trotters with a commanding front-end romp over Just As Striking and Say Gesundheit. The Glassmeyer-trained Embrace The Grind is two-for-two in his career.

In the remaining division for male trotters, Mike and Linda English's Phantom Feet ($6.00, Ross Wolfenden) triumphed over Go Jetem and Dr Grinch in 2:04.3. Trained by John Wilkerson, the Hes Spooky gelding led from start to finish in first career start.

The lone filly division went to Sarah and John Swart Jr.'s Royal Locket ($14.40, Corey Callahan), who prevailed in wire-to-wire fashion in 2:04.4 over Dark Dutchess and Shes Spooky. A daughter of Yankee Royalty, Royal Locket notched her first career victory for trainer Nick Callahan.

In the $11,000 overnight featured Open II Trot, Rosemary Smutz's Man Of Muscle ($10.00, Art Stafford Jr.) was a 1:57.2 winner over Donnie Darko and Sunset Mike.

Mike Cole had four wins on the card; Victor Kirby won three.

Live racing resumes Monday (Sept. 24).
