Rosiemunn, who is owned and trained by Kerin Warner, held off a late charge by Unusual Clarity (Joe Nassimos) and won in a lifetime best of 1:53.4. Unusual Clarity had to settle for second best. Love Live Laugh (Jimmy Whittemore) was third.
Rosimunn is a 5-year-old mare by Dream Away. It was her fourth win this season. She now owns 11 career victories.
Parker had two more wins on the night. His other victories came with Pudge's Pastime ($5.90), and Fox Valley Photog ($6.80). Jennifer Lappe and John MacDonald had driving doubles during the July Fourth performance. Lappe won with Jokes Jet ($19.00), and Flamingo Pete ($8.20).
