Rose Run Fastball captures Open Trot
« Return to News
Just four nights earlier at Yonkers, Rose Run Fastball broke stride in an Open Handicap Trot to cough up a late lead. This time out, with Tim Tetrick in the bike for trainer Sherif Cunmulaj, the 8-year-old gelding by Armbro Laser worked out a pocket trip behind 6-5 favorite Lolique. In the stretch, Rose Run Fastball pulled the pocket and easily sped by to win going away by 3 1/4 lengths in 1:55. Sauce Two K came on for second while Lolique settled for third.
Rose Run Fastball, a 2-1 second choice, won for the third time in 12 races this year and 29th time in his career. Owned by Ameer Najor, the gelding pushed his career earnings to just shy of $250,000 with the win. (Pocono Downs)
