Jo Ann Looney-King's Spanish Dream was the fastest of four $20,000 Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund divisions for two-year-old pacing fillies with a 1:54.4 triumph at Harrington Raceway Monday.

The Dream Away filly overpowered her rivals with a powerful move near three quarters as she won by open lengths over I Won Them Both and Cashmeres Delight. It was the second career win in four starts for the Jim King Jr.-trained Spanish Dream ($6.00, Victor Kirby).

Kirby dominated the DSBF events, winning three of the four, two for owner King and trainer King, Jr.

Joel and Dianne Halpern's Westwind Roddylee ($2.20, Victor Kirby) prevailed in the first division in 1:57.2 for trainer Jason Skinner. The Roddys Bags Again filly notched her third win in five career starts.

Jo Ann Looney-King's Logans Girl ($3.40, Kirby) was a 1:56.2 winner to complete a sweep of her eliminations for trainer Jim King Jr. A winner of 3-of-4 starts lifetime, she is sired by Roddys Bags Again.

Virginia Louthan's Spinpressive ($3.40, Corey Callahan) broke her maiden with a 1:57.1 victory in the third division. Trained by her owner, Spinpressive is a daughter of No Spin Zone.

The top eight point earners will return to compete in a $100,000 final on October 5, part of a Delaware showcase night which also features three other $100,000 DSBF final events, as well as $20,000 consolations.

In the $19,200 overnight feature, the Open Pace, Richard Lombardo and L&J Racing's Dancin Yankee ($6, Russell Foster) scored a 1:51.4 victory for trainer Josh Green.

Kirby had four wins on the program, while Corey Callahan had a hat trick. Jon Roberts and Tony Morgan each had a driving double. Trainer Mike Hall also won two races.
