Happy Homecoming For Special T Rocks
May 15

Special T Rocks (Ross Wolfenden) returned home a winner today in the $17,500 Open pace with a 1:52 victory at Harrington Raceway.

McKenry marched to the early lead at odds of 9/2, setting fractions of 27.3 and 56.1 before Wick N applied serious pressure to three-quarters in 1:24, while Special T Rocks gathered three-wide momentum. McKenry led the field of seven at the top of the stretch but was reeled in by Special T Rocks in deep stretch for the win. Maritime owned Wakizashi Hanover, the race favourite, was a belated second and McKenry held third.

Owned by William Sartin and Mark Salerno, it was the fourth win of the year for Special T Rocks, a nine-year-old Rocknroll Hanover gelding whose previous 2017 wins came at the Meadowlands, where he spent the previous few months.

Trained by Joe Hundertpfund Jr., Special T Rocks padded his lifetime earnings to nearly $625,000. It was one of three wins on the program for Wolfenden, who also won with Hey Dali and Gimmethreestepsmr.

Tony Morgan, won the first three races on the program, including both halves of the daily double. In the first race, Ron Davis' Mister Virgin ($3, Morgan) was a dominant nine-length winner in 1:52 for trainer Brooks Gray.

The $10,000-claimer set all the fractions from the rail in achieving his 20th career win and tied a personal season's best. Meanwhile, Joan Dalphon and Elanor Laws' Dont Ya Know (Morgan) had no trouble in prevailing for the fourth time this season for trainer Jason Skinner to complete the daily double sequence, with a 1:53.3 triumph.

Morgan had the race favourite, Rangers Sureshot, in the fourth race but finished third as Classiesistar N (Montrell Teague) prevailed in 1:52.4 in a sub-featured $11,000 pace.
