2016 GOVERNOR'S CUP WINNER

DELAWARE STATE FAIR

















Despite an early thunderstorm, racing fans were treated to a terrific night of racing Thursday at Harrington Raceway’s annual Governor’s Day program during the Delaware State Fair.
 After heavy downpours invaded Kent County just prior to the first race, mother nature cooperated for most of the rest of the evening as 13 races were contested for nearly $600,000 in total purses.
 The $40,000 Governor’s Cup is always a popular event with local bragging rights at stake, as Foulk Stables’ Sparky Mark ($5.60, Corey Callahan) prevailed narrowly in 1:53.0. The 9-year-old Astreos stallion held off second place finisher Leyden in a tight photo finish. Little Ben was third. Sparky Mark notched his 53rd career win for trainer Dylan Davis.
