Rovasreadytorumble ($7) was able to close from eighth on the final turn and gun down seven rivals to win the $8,500 feature trot by one length in 1:58.2 Wednesday at the Isle Pompano Park.


The seventh race got underway with Tropical Bay and driver Dan Clements going to the early lead with Ferraras Girl (Raymond Vizzi) right on their backs to the opening quarter mile in :27.4. As the field approached the half, On Hold N and driver Terry Cullipher came first-over with Lewie’s Lulu (Andy Santeramo) in the second-over flow to the half mile in :57.4.


When the field reached the three-quarter mile marker in 1:27.3, Lewie’s Lulu moved three wide around the final turn with Samacamawacky Brown (Anthony Napolitano) following the outside flow and from eighth place, driver Wally Hennessey got Rovasreadytorumble into the hunt.


Fanning four wide as the field started down the stretch, Hennessey was able to urge Rovasreadytorumble into fifth gear and he was able to collar Lewie’s Lulu before the finish. Curly Whirly (Bruce Ranger) was third.


It was the fifth win in 10 starts this year for Rovasreadytorumble. The 10-year-old gelding by Veeba Rova is trained by Dan Hennessey and owned by the Trot Time Farm of Savannah, Ga. (Pompano Park)
