El Cumanchero wins again at Rosecroft on Tuesday night
Steven and Lynda Warrington’s El Cumanchero made it three in a row and four out of five at the Winter-Spring meet with an impressive off the pace score (1:55.2) in the evening’s eighth race. Warrington trains and drives the six year old gelded son on Real Artist who got away third after a quick opening quarter of 26.2 posted by I Wanna Go Fast, who finally cleared Gone Nuclear to make the lead. After a half of 56.4 things remained the same until El Cumanchero and Warrington came roaring out of the three hole and engaged I Wanna Go Fast nearing the three-quarters pole. These two battled around the turn and El Cumanchero edged away late for the score. I Wanna Go Fast held the place and Gone Nuclear held off the closers for the show spot.
Stargazer Lily made it two in a row in the week’s top trot with a gutsy wire to wire score for Justin Vincent (one of three wins on the night). Owner-trainer Frank D. Miller’s pride and joy made all the fractions and dug in late to hold off the late charge of Victory Nut and Cutty.
