Ft. Washington, MD --- Jonathan Roberts and Frank Milby each earned four wins on the 12-race Tuesday night (Sept. 29) harness racing card at Rosecroft Raceway.

Fancy Colt (Milby) took the $10,000 Open Handicap for colts and geldings with a first-over move down the backside and scored in the driving rain in 1:53.
