Vincents capture half the card on a rainy Tuesday night at Rosecroft.
Driver Justin Vincent captured three races at Rosecroft on Tuesday night, but father Kim Vincent also recorded a driving double while putting a lifetime marks on both of his winners.
Justin won the second, fifth and tenth races, while Kim won races six and eight.
Justin won with the second race via a front running style with RT Phoebes Giant who is trained by co-owner Eileen Lineweaver and Ellen Warren. RT won for the first time this season and the twenty-sixth time in his career. The winner paid $32.00 to win and triggered a ~$150 exacta. Kim got loose too late with Yankey Conway and was flying late to complete the “all-Vincent” exacta.
Justin returned to the winner’s circle after the fifth race with Vinegar Hill for owner-trainer Kenny Schlotzhauer breaking that one’s seasonal maiden. He concluded his night with another win for trainer Schlotzhauer setting a lifetime mark on the impeccably bred Rocknroll Jewel who battled courageously while facing pressure most of the mile in 1:54. Kelley Rogers owns the winner. This was the co-fastest mile of the evening.
Kim set a lifetime mark winning with Matts All Star in the sixth race. This one got away slowly as usual but found another gear and roared him in 56.3 to win going away. Isreal Collazo lessees the winner and Freddie Collazo trains the five year old son of Village Jove who has suddenly “figured things out” this season under Collazo’s handling.
Kim blew up the toteboard in the eighth race cleverly quarter-moving back to the front end with Michael’s Dream and stealing a 29.4 second quarter before cruising home in 56.4 to hold off the two hole sitting Gold Like U (Donnie Russell). Michael’s Dream shaved over a second off his lifetime mark for owner-trainer James Whalen Jr. The winner paid $27.60 for the win and set his lifetime mark of 1:54.
Donnie Russell continued to drive well having a driving double on the evening.
