Leading Northern American 3yo's Rock N Roll Heaven and Put On A Show didn't disappoint in their Breeders Crown Finals at Pocono Downs on October 9 (US time) with both Rocknroll Hanover youngsters victorious in their respective Finals.
The Little Brown Jug winner Rock N Roll Heaven treated his rivals with contempt in the US$500,000 3YO Colts and Geldings Pacing Final, cruising to a five and a half length victory over Fred And Ginger in a time of 1:49 flat.
The Bruce Saunders trained colt has now won 15 of his lifetime starts for earnings of US$2,066,403.
In the US$500,000 3YO Fillies Pacing Final the short priced favourite, Put On A Show, prevailed over fellow Rocknroll Hanover filly Rock N Soul by a half length at the line in 1:50.2.
The champion filly has won 19 of her 23 starts to date and US$1,822,040 in prize-money ($1,089,732 of it this season), making her the richest filly of all time.
Rocknroll Hanover continues to dominate the 3YO Pacing Sires Premiership with his progeny having won more than US$7.2 million in 2010 - twice that of the second placed stallion.
Other Breeders Crown winners by Nevele R sires included Big Jim (Western Ideal), the winner of the US$600,000 2YO Colts and Geldings Pacing Final and Break The Bank K (Revenue) who set a new world record for 3yo trotters on a 5/8ths of a mile track when taking out the 3YO Colts and Geldings Trotting Final in 1:52.4.
