HARRINGTON, Del. – For the second straight night there was a harness racing upset in the feature race at Harrington Raceway as William Moffett Inc.'s Gillie The Kid ($17.40,) was a 1:59.1 winner in the $20,000 Open Trot over a sloppy racetrack.
Trained by his owner, the 6-year-oldgelding surged wide through the stretch to outkick a ground saving I Like My Boss late for an extremely narrow margin of victory that required a photo finish. Mr. Right finished third.
Gillie The Kid has won 24 races in his career and banked more than $280,000. Both of his wins this year have come at Harrington.
Earlier on the card, Totally Dreamy ($2.10, Tony Morgan) notched his 4th straight win for trainer Brian Wright and owners Jeff Beauchamp and Ron Short in 1:56.
The 2019 live racing meet has one more week until completion as racing will be conducted Monday through Wednesday next week, with closing night on October 23.
Post time is 4:30 p.m. nightly.
