TAKES $110,000 GALT STAKE
By Kimberly Rinker for
Rossini and driver Peter Wrenn cruised to a 1:55.3 victory in the $110,000 Galt Stake
for 3-year-old trotting colts and geldings on Friday night, Nov. 15 at Maywood
The son of Classic
Photo-Beverly Crusher is trained by Jim Raymer for
the Harbor Racing Stable, LLC of Houston, Texas, and picked up his tenth race
of the season in 22 starts. His seasonal earnings now stand at
$213,250 and his career bankroll at $231,843.
“It was a pretty easy task
once we got out of the gate,” said winning driver Peter Wrenn.
“I was a little concerned up the backside as I thought I might get bottled out,
but this horse is really tough and I don’t think he’s gone too many poor races.
Jim (trainer Raymer) is a great horse trainer and
this horse is very tough and he handles the turns really well and that’s a
bonus. This horse just isn’t going to quit.”
Rossini finished half a
length in front of Dewycolorintheline (Corey
Callahan), with Pine Credit (Lewayne Miller) notching
Dewycolorintheline took the early lead to the :28.3 first
quarter and to the :58 half, before the hard-trying Lindy’s Tru
Grit pulled first over, challenging the leader at the 1:26.4 three-quarter
marker. Creampuff Macdaddy (Jody Jamieson)
then went three-wide around the final turn, while Rossini went past the tiring
Lindy’s Tru Grit to prevail by half a length.
