Ft. Washington, MD — What That Is won his third straight $10,000 Open Handicap Trot at Rosecroft Raceway on Monday night (Dec. 9) as part of a harness racing driving double for Roger Plante Jr. and an owning-training double for Kerry Welty.

The 4-year-old trotter by pacing sire Cam’s Rocket won for the seventh time this year and the 19th time in 57 career starts. Plante sent his charge from post nine and cleared past the opening quarter and rolled on a track labeled ‘good’ in 1:55.3. In seven Open Handicap starts since Oct. 20, What That Is has won five of them.

Plante also remained red hot with Rockin The Shades who won his third race in his last four starts in a lifetime best 1:53.2.

Jared Moyer doubled on the night, steering Honest Liar to a win in his second start for new owner-trainer Jerry Nock in 1:56. Moyer also closed stoutly from sixth with Bo Breeze, getting him home at 8-1 and winning his 12th race of the year in 1:53.4.

Eric Davis guided two winners for owner Eugene Robinson and trainer Katie Flaherty. Baby She’s Got It won a dazzling stretch duel with Earn My Stripes, Writteninred and Whiskey N Coke who were within a length of each other in a four horse photo. Davis later scored with Crush Hanover, who held off a game effort from True Cut, who was parked from the three-eighths mark on, in 1:56.2.

Frank Milby took the $11,000 Open Pace with Romantic Interest who fought off a stubborn Rocktavious and In Record Time in 1:51.3. It was the eighth win of the year for the 4-year old Always A Virgin gelding for owner Candy Milby.
