Rose travels to get Jennings win on Regal Solo


Jockey Jeremy Rose made his road trip to Laurel Park worthwhile Saturday when he guided Regal Solo to a 2 1/4-length victory in the $50,000 Jennings Handicap.

It was the fourth track Rose had ridden at within the past week. After riding for top trainers Tony Dutrow and Mike Trombetta at Philadelphia Park last Monday and Tuesday, Rose finished second aboard Greenspring in the Grade 3 Fall Highweight at Aqueduct on Thanksgiving Day, then went to Churchill Downs, where he rode Bullsbay, who was seventh in the Grade 2 Clark Handicap on Friday.

"At this time of the year if you want to keep riding stakes horses this is what you have to do," Rose said. "We have been very lucky this year to ride a lot of good horses by doing this."

Rose, the leading rider at Laurel's winter meet early in 2009, plans to ride this winter at Gulfstream Park.

Regal Solo, claimed for $40,000 in August by trainer Damon Dilodovico on behalf of Alvin Lapidos, had finished third in his first two starts for his new connections in the Maryland Million Classic and the Find Handicap.

In the Jennings, the 4-year-old Regal Solo ($5) powered between horses entering the far turn and charged to command, completing 1 1/8 miles on a fast track in 1:53.06.

Distributor rallied to get second, a half-length in front of Sarto, the pacesetter.

Defending Jennings champion Broadway Producer, the 7-5 morning-line favorite, was scratched after finishing third at 6-1 in Friday night's $65,000 Alysheba Stakes at the Meadowlands.
