ROSECROFT RACE­WAY: All Bets Off ben­e­fited from a per­fect trip and a con­tested early pace to cap­ture the $100,000 Po­tomac Pace on Tues­day night while equal­ing the Fort Wash­ing­ton har­ness track’s record for a mile. Driven by Matt Kaka­ley, All Bets Off was timed in 1 minute, 48.2 sec­onds while edg­ing Split the House by a nose and ty­ing Nu­clear Breeze’s 2007 track record in the in­au­gu­ral edi­tion of the Po­tomac Pace. Hanover closed strongly along the in­side to fin­ish third. Sham­balla, the 9-5 fa­vorite, was taken to the out­side head­ing into the far turn but was un­able to mount a se­ri­ous chal­lenge. The Po­tomac Pace might be the last of All Bets Off’s ca­reer. “I love this horse,” Kaka­ley said. “He’s had a great ca­reer. I think the plan is for him to go off to stud.” The Po­tomac Pace was the first race at Rosecroft to of­fer a purse worth $100,000 or more in nearly 10 years. LAU­REL PARK: First post at the track today will be 11:25 a.m. For de­tails about Lau­rel’s Thanks­giv­ing Day pro­gram and food op­tions, go to lau­rel park.com. Post time re­turns to 12:30 p.m. Fri­day. BASE­BALL: The Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als ac­quired right-handed pitcher Jimmy Cordero, 25, from the Philadel­phia Phillies for a player to be named or cash. The Phillies des­ig­nated Cordero for as­sign­ment last week, and there­fore had 10 days to trade him, re­lease him or out­right him to the mi­nors. Af­ter ac­quir­ing him from the Toronto Blue Jays in ex­change for out­fielder Ben Re­vere in 2015, the Phillies sent Cordero to join Re­vere with the Na­tion­als. Cordero slides straight onto the Na­tion­als’ 40-man roster, which stands at 38 play­ers, and likely will get an au­di­tion in spring train­ing, though no one with the or­ga­ni­za­tion has said as much yet. Cordero is 10-12 with a 3.80 ERA in 110 re­lief ap­pear­ances and five starts over five mi­nor league sea­sons.
