Morgan equals driving mark Wednesday at Harrington
HARRINGTON, Del. - Driver Tony Morgan continued his tremendous success with eight wins on the Wednesday program at Harrington Raceway, equaling the driving record on First State's half-mile racetrack.
After winning the first and fifth races with Ge's Jordan ($3.40) and Harry Hornet ($3.40), Morgan won four consecutive races (8-11). He then won the 13th with Red Oak's Yankee ($4.60) and 14th with Sempre Veloce N ($16). He currently has 37 wins at the meet in just eight days of racing.
Morgan equaled the driving milestone for most wins in a night, set by Brad Hanners in 2004.
In one of the few races, not won by Morgan, Alton Lynch Jr.'s Put Them On Hold took advantage of a late break of the pacesetter, to win the featured $13,500 winners-over Trot.
The 7-year-old Call Toll Free gelding stalked leader Coerfurst through fractions of 28.2, 58 and 1:27.4. Coerfurst (Brad Hanners) then went off stride, giving Put Them On Hold the lead as he held off Bullville Sue (Tim Curtin) and Willie T (Eddie Davis Jr.) for a two length triumph. It was his third win in 11 starts this year for trainer/driver Lynch Jr. http://www.harringtonraceway.com/press.cfm
