A daughter of Badlands Hanover, Shabby Chic remained unbeaten in four starts for trainer Mike Hall.

In the remaining DSBF divisions, Gty Stable's Gaitway Gal ($2.40, Pat Berry) improved to four-for-five lifetime with a 1:58.1 victory for trainer Jeff Smith. The Delmarvalous filly drew away from her rivals effortlessly for a four-length score.

Bryan Truitt, Bryan Truitt Jr. and Victor Kirby's Bank The Win ($3.60, Kirby) was a 1:57.3 winner in the first DSBF split. Trained by Truitt, the Roddy's Bags Again filly surged to the lead near the top of the stretch and pulled away from Bluffs Crush and Tahoe, who rounded out the trifecta. The Roddy's Bags Again filly registered her 1st career win.

On the undercard, Nanticoke Racing, Steve Messick and Kevin Evans' A Delightful Act N ($2.10, Art Stafford Jr.) won her third-straight race in 1:54 for trainer Josh Parker.

Art Stafford Jr. won three races on the card while Pat Berry and Jon Roberts each had driving doubles.
