Two Laurel Park-based horses won at Delaware Park July 10 to move up on the Fantasy Ownership Challenge standings.
In the fourth race, for $5,000 claimers, Charles Biggs' C B Bodemester, trained by Cal Lynch and ridden by Maryland-based Sheldon Russell, rallied from off the pace to win the $12,000 event at one mile and 70 yards. The Bodemeister 3-year-old in his previous start finished fourth at Laurel for a $11,000 tag against fellow 3-year-olds.
C B Bodemester, who took his Challenge bankroll to $28,815 with the $7,200 first-place check, was claimed by Laurel-based trainer Wayne Potts on behalf of owner Michael Cook. Potts entered one horse at Delaware July 10 and won the race with Big Platinum earlier on the program.
In the eighth race, TW Stable's Hey Willie, trained by Claudio Gonzalez, won a one mile and 70-yard starter allowance event with a purse of $18,250 under Maryland-based jockey Kevin Gomez. Hey Willie earned $10,800 to increase his contest bankroll to $27,425.
Gonzalez is having an excellent Delaware meet with shippers; on July 8 he finished one-two in a $50,000 stakes.
