KDK Standardbreds Apple Bottom Jeans became the fastest female equine in Rosecroft history Tuesday night winning the $10,000 Open for Mares in 1:50.3.
Pocket-sitting Breadcrumb Income (Brian Burton) was second, Use Your Noodle (Les Givens) was third. The winning mile eclipsed the 2006 effort of The Queen Of Trash of 1:51.1.
Steven Nason drove the 4-year-old daughter of Mr. Apples for trainer Kevin Switzer, who left from post eight in :26 to the opening quarter. Any hope for a major breather went by the wayside when the 4-5 favorite Sweet Bobby got parked and pressed hard for the lead going to the half, never clearing the leader in :54.
Apple Bottom Jeans was an extraordinary 4-1 for her supporters.
Jared Moyer and Roger Plante had driving doubles and trainer George Leager won two races. (Rosecroft)
