Posted 101 daysMilby wins three as Rosecroft starts
Spring 2013 meet
Driver Frank Milby showed the form that helped him become the leading driver for the Fall 2012 meet by winning three of four drives on Saturday night. Milby won by going wire to wire with both JK American Idol (trained by Bobby Clark) and Scarlet Pandemic (trained by Frank Gannon III). In the nightcap Milby worked out a second over trip to score going away.
Milby scored in the fourth race with the first time starter JK American Idol. JK American Idol put up all the fractions, found another gear when the field turned for home and looks to have a bright future after scoring in 1:57.4. This 3 year old daughter of American Ideal is owned by 3 Brothers Stables from New York, New York.
Milby’s next winner came behind Scarlet Pandemic who stole a middle half of 1:00.1 and sprinted home in 28 to score in a season’s best 1:54.1 in the Maryland Owned, Sired, Trained or Foaled Winner’s Oval pace. Rocket Rosy sat a three hole trip , closing well late to claim the place spot and Shaker Rei unleashed a furious rally in the final three-eighths of the mile to grab the show dough. Scarlet Pandemic is trained and co-owned by Frank Gannon III , in partnership with Joan and Frank Gannon of Easton, Maryland.
In the finale Shewolf and Ms Ed slugged it out for six furloughs before tiring from the battle and Milby was in the perfect spot to go right on by for an easy win with Wrangler Jane. Fool For A Smile loomed boldly at the head of the stretch but hung late after a big move on the final turn. The winner is trained and leased by Brian Malone of Delmar, Maryalnd.
Fall 2011 leading driver Corey Braden scored a driving double on the night as did Billy Carter, while long-time leading Rosecroft driver John Wagner scored a dominating win with KJ Anita.
Racing at Rosecroft resumes with a twelve race card Tuesday evening at 7:25 pm eastern.
