'Team Teague' got off to a good start Sunday at the Delaware County Fair in what could be a very memorable year.

Montrell Teague guided George Teague Jr.’s Miss Me Yet to a six and three-quarter length victory in the $107,433 (div.) Ohio Breeders Championship for two-year-old filly pacers in a stakes record 1:55.

The Teagues will send out the favourite, Wiggle It Jiggleit, in Thursday’s Little Brown Jug presented by Fazoli’s.

The Ohio Sires Stakes champion Miss Me Yet used her post position #2 to control the fractions and the field of seven. She opened up at the top of the homestretch and sprinted away from My Tweed Heart (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) and Its Your Fantasy (Josh Sutton) to establish the new stakes mark.

The daughter of Im Gorgeous, trained by Brenda Teague, has now won four of seven seasonal starts and has earned $189,205.

Trained by Jim Arledge Jr., Big Bad Ashley and Josh Sutton survived a three-way photo finish to capture the second $35,811 division over Queen Ann M (Chris Page) and Wiggler (Ryan Stahl) in 1:57. Winchester Baye Acres owns the daughter of the 2011 Little Brown Jug champ Big Bad John.

The first division was captured by Johns Sunny Girl and driver Greg Grismore by three-quarters of a length in 1:55.3. Big Bad Chickie (Ronnie Wrenn Jr.) and Johns Jessi Bird (Chris Page) completed the trifecta. The Doug Hinklin trainee is another daughter of Big Bad John, owned by Parent Racing Stable LLC.

Delaware also hosted a trio of amateur driving events, the USTA’s Standardbred Driving Championship and two Billings Series events.

Luke Varnum, representing the Maine Amateur Driving Club, was parked out the entire mile, but the gritty Northern River still had gas in the tank to score in 1:57.4. The event features drivers from nine driving clubs from across the United States.

The Billings Amateur Trot events were won by Heza Rube (Bob Troyer) and Rush N Supreme (Mitchell Walker). The win was Troyer’s fifth in the Billings Series at the Delaware County Fair.

Post time on Monday is at 3:00 p.m.
