(Fort Washington, MD) - A field of five racing under saddle trotters descend upon Rosecroft Sunday evening, November 4, 2018, in the third and final leg of the RUS MidAtlantic Trotting Series. The non-wagering race has an anticipated post time of 7:30pm, to be contested between the third and fourth races on the wagering program.
All-time favorite Hyway Marcus (Sasha Moczulski, pp 4) returns looking to repeat his victory in last year’s event. Finishing second in his last start to No Recess who is bypassing this race, Hyway Marcus is coming into the race with a rare two race losing streak. Atout De Fontaine (pp 1) appears to be the main challenger, having finished third in his first North American start and picks up rider Maria Buchanan for trainer Sofia Zingale who will be riding his stablemate Egosnattitudes (pp 3) who will be making his first start. Other starters in the race will be Puddin N Pie (Stephanie Jacobs, pp 2) who finished fifth in his first start and the lone mare, My True Friend (Hillary Hartnett, pp 5).
There will be a meet and greet before and after the race. Race fans will be able to talk to the riders and ask any questions they may have about racing under saddle. Post time for the first race is 6:40pm.
