The annual program is a focal point for many Delaware horsemen, as a showcase of The First State’s top standardbreds as every horse on the program is either Delaware owned and/or Delaware bred.
The coveted $40,000 Governor’s Cup is a sought after title for older horses and was won for the second straight year by Foulk Stables’ Sparky Mark ($45.80, Jon Roberts) via a pocket trip over Captive Audience and Tip It On Back. The 10-year-old Astreos stallion registered his 58th career win for trainer Trish Foulk. Governor John Carney was on hand to participate in the winner’s circle ceremonies.
