Rossini and driver Peter Wrenn cruised to a 1:55.3 victory in the $110,000 Galt Stake for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Friday night, Nov. 15 at Maywood Park.

The son of Classic Photo-Beverly Crusher is trained by Jim Raymer for the Harbor Racing Stable, LLC of Houston, Texas, and picked up his tenth win of the season in 22 starts. His seasonal earnings now stand at $213,250 and his career bankroll at $231,843.

“It was a pretty easy task once we got out of the gate,”said winning driver Peter Wrenn. “I was a little concerned up the backside as I thought I might get bottled out, but this horse is really tough and I don’t think he’s gone too many poor races. Jim (trainer Raymer) is a great horse trainer and this horse is very tough and he handles the turns really well and that’s a bonus. This horse just isn’t going to quit.”

Rossini finished half a length in front of Dewycolorintheline (Corey Callahan), with Pine Credit (Lewayne Miller) notching third-place money.

Dewycolorintheline took the early lead to the :28.3 firstquarter and to the :58 half, before the hard-trying Lindy’s Tru Grit pulled first over, challenging the leader at the 1:26.4 three-quarter marker. Creampuff Macdaddy (Jody Jamieson) then wen tthree-wide around the final turn, while Rossini went past the tiring Lindy’sTru Grit to prevail by half a length.
