Fort Washington, MD --- Trainer Brian Fisher picked up a pair of wins on Tuesday night (May 9) at Rosecroft as both of his veteran mares Rhapsody Rose and Rocket Rosy were dead game on the front end.
Rhapsody Rose scored a 1:52.3 win for Roger Plante holding off a first-over charge from Corona Again and Junkyard Treasure who was third.
Rocket Rosy briefly saw Little Miss Woo Hoo get by her on the final turn before reclaiming the lead for Ricky Still and holding off a late charge by Real Passing Lady in 1:53.3. Both mares are owned by Twin Ponds Racing Stable.
Plante had an impressive score with 3-year old filly trotter Holy Trout.
