What does it cost to have an early bloomer? Two year olds were in action in baby races at the Meadowland Saturday morning--19 small fields. Two colts by Rocknroll Hanover were the fastest of the juvenile parade.
Mybrothergeorge, a Rocknroll Hanover colt out of the Cam Fella mare Armbro Ophelia, won by 2 1/4 lengths in 1:56.3 with a :27.1 last panel. Bruce Saunders trains the colt for owner Frank Bellino, who bought him for $110,000 at last year's Harrisburg sale.
Time To Roll, a colt by Rocknroll Hanover out of Kikikatie, bred and owned by Susan Grange's Lothlorien, cruised to a 1:56.3 score, winning by 3 1/4 lengths with a :27.2 final panel.
Jimmy Takter trains Time To Roll while Marcus Johansson handled the driving.
On the trotting front, the 2-year-old filly Real Babe broke the 2;00 mark for the second time, winning again in 1:59.3. Last week she won her baby race by a nose; this time she was up by 12 lengths at the top of the lane and eventually coasted under the wire 7 1/4 lengths in front.
Ray Schnittker trains, drives and shares ownership of the filly, who has very accomplished parents. She's a daughter of Donato Hanover and Housethatruthbuilt. Cameo Hills Farm sold the filly as a yearling for $100,000 at the Lexington Selected Sale.
