Harrington, DE — Northern Express ($5.00, Russell Foster) was a 1:55.2 winner in the $20,000 Open Trot Wednesday (June 7) at Harrington Raceway.
Despite starting from post position eight, the 7-year-old Muscle Massive gelding made the lead near the opening quarter mile and never relented, posting a narrow win over Manatlas and Swan Flyer for owner-trainer Arty Foster Jr. It was his fourth win of the year, and it sealed his second straight season with earnings in excess of $100,000.
The win was one of two on the card for driver Foster, who is just one victory shy of 2,000 lifetime.
Pat Berry had three wins on the card.
Live racing at Harrington will continue on a Monday-through-Wednesday schedule with Delaware Standardbred Breeders Fund (DSBF) stakes action for 3-year-olds starting next week. Post time is 4:30 p.m.
