The postponed 2 YO stakes opened the early non-wagering harness racing card at Rosecroft Raceway with the trotting/colts and geldings. Speed It (Cam's Rocket-Hypercast) went gate to wire in 2:00.2 for owner/trainer Richard Hans of Westminster, MD. Jim Morand was in the bike.
Speed It closed the season with 5 wins in 7 starts. Sweeten Me Up (CR Renegade) was second.
The Syl King, Jr. trainee Star Rose (You Betcha-Ragland Road) captured her third sire stake series final of the season in 2:00.4 over rival Rock the Game (Cam's Rocket). Driver Ray Robinson Jr. was content to keep Star Rose in the pocket until the last turn, opening up 8 lengths on the field in the stretch.
Brian Callahan and Gloria Kinnamon's homebred Fastestgirlaround (Dontloseyourdayjob-Sandy Calady) has dominated the 2 YO pacing filly division this season and tonight was no different. Reinsman Frank Milby sent her to the front and never looked back stopping the clock in 1:58.2 over Mo Power(Capitol Power).
Owner/trainer Richard Hans picked up his second win of the night with What I Say Goes (Cam's Rocket-Look Sunder). Jonathan Roberts guided the colt in the 1:58.4 mile. Winbak Farm's Steal N Go (Bonnie and Clyde) got up for place.
The 3 YO card started with the pacing fillies. Driver/trainer Cory Mumford took Helaine's Firebird (Allie's Western-Flannel Yankee) back out of the gate not gaining the front until the ¾ pole, holding off Jodi's Sweety buy a length in the 1:58.1 mile. Frank Chick owners the filly.
Sean Bier sent Jay Boy (Tsunami-Russian Caviar) leased and trained by Syl King Jr., wire to wire in 1:58.3 in the Earl Wagner Memorial for trotting colt/geldings over Ringdangdo (Doggone Yankee).
The Ralph Hayward Memorial for 3 YO trotting fillies went to Wynnfield Sunset (Doggone Yankee-Wynnfield Molly) over Betcha Ur My Baby (You Betcha) in 1:59.2. Les Givens trains and drives the filly for owner Pam Polk.
The final stake of the season was an early dual between stable mates Toms Typhoon and Toms Tornado, both by Cam's Rocket and both owned by Thomas Cooke in the Wayne Smullin Memorial for pacing colt/geldings. In the stretch Toms Typhoon with Roger Plante Jr. in the bike pulled away by 6 in the 1:52.2 mile, Roger Hans trains both colts.
The Maryland Standardbred Race Fund wants to thank everyone that supported the 2015 stakes and hope to see you next year.
