Rocknroll Hanover youngsters shine in Breeders Crown Heats03 October 2010 | Written by Nikki Reed
As expected the progeny of champion pacer and sire Rocknroll Hanover made their presence felt in the US Breeders Crown eliminations at Pocono Downs, Pennsylvania over the weekend.
Fresh from his world record Little Brown Jug win, Rock N Roll Heaven made light work of his US$25,000 Breeders Crown elimination, careering away in the straight to win by five lengths in 1:49.2f.
It was the millionaire 3yo's 14th lifetime win, taking his earnings to US$1,816,403.
North America's best 3yo filly Put On A Show also booked her spot in next weekend's 3YO Fillies Final with a 1:50.4f victory in her heat. It was her 18th win from just 22 race-day starts, increasing her prize-money won to US$1,572,040.
The NZ bred Rocknroll Hanover juvenile Foreclosure followed up his New Jersey Sires Stakes Final success with a dominant win in a 2YO Colts and Geldings Breeders Crown elimination on the Friday, recording a career best time of 1:52.2f and improving his overall record to five wins from eight starts.
In other good results for Nevele R's stallions, One More Laugh (McArdle) easily took out his 3YO Colts and Geldings elimination by two and a half lengths in 1:50 flat, and the Muscle Yankee fillies Lady Rainbow and Miss Fitness each claimed a 2YO Trotting Filly elimination.
The lucrative finals will be run on October 9 (US time).
