Rosecroft: Gaagaa Gone wins in Sires Stakes action
Gaagaa Gone wins in Sires Stakes action

As a freshman trotter in 2017, Gaagaa Gone did a lot right. The daughter of Googoo Gaagaa won eight of 10 starts and made $44,217 for trainer Shaun Callahan. Her only blemishes came in the two Fall finals of the Maryland Sires Stakes program.

After a flat seasonal debut last week, Wednesday night (May 16), with owner Corey Callahan in the bike, she took care of business in a Maryland Sires Stakes race on a wet track labeled 'good' in 1:59.1. Maryann's A Player (Jared Moyer) was second and Diamonds Credit (Roger Plante) was third.

In the second 3-year-old filly trotting division, Crystal's Pistol fired for the first time in her career, winning in 2:01.4 for Russell Foster. Syl King Jr. owns the daughter of Cam's Rocket who had been winless in 14 lifetime starts. Loriella (Jason Green) was second and Four Deuces (Brian Burton) was third.

BT's Breeze was a non-participant in the stakes scene in just four starts last year. Wednesday night he proved he will be a force to contend with in the 3-year-old colt pacing division, scooting by last year's dominant foe Allie's Finale (Plante) and Lloyds All In (John Wagner). Victor Kirby guided the winner for owner Bryan Truitt Jr. and trainer Bryan Truitt in 1:55.1. It was his fourth win in 2018.

The final colt pacing division went to Ronnies Rocket and John Wagner. The son of Cam's Rocket went gate-to-wire in 1:55.1. Arlene Cameron conditions for owner Pamela Wagner. EZ Pass B (Foster) was second and Bo Breeze (Callahan) was third.

It was the first of three wins for John Wagner on the pari-mutuel card, as he copped the daily double, winning race two with A Lady Sizzling for Green Valley Training and trainer Thomas Armour in 1:55.2. Wagner also won with Madiba for owner Thomas Cooke and trainer Ken Schlotzhauer, who like Cooke had a pair of wins as Jason Green guided Tom's Titan to a win.

Kim Vincent had two wins on the card as OK Daisey won for trainer John Hollingsworth and the Twin Ponds Stable and Get Real Rusty scored for owner-trainer Bobby Myers.

Ricky Still sported a driving double with Pop Writer for Megan Roberts and Hunter and Colton LLC and also new Ohio import White Fish Flash for owner-trainer Brittany Bounds.

Brian Burton won the feature for mares as Breadcrumb Income found her form after several starts from the outside, holding off Hostess Lisa (Declan Donoway) and Rhapsody Rose (Frank Milby) in 1:54.2.
