Rock Of Gibraltar Adds UK Black-Type
Coolmore's 7-time Gr1-winning shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a UK black-type success when his colt Your Old Pal (Rock Of Gibraltar-Questabelle, by Rainbow Quest) scored by a head in the £50,000 (A$104,000) Listed Newmarket Stakes (10 furlongs) for 3YO colts & geldings at Newmarket. Your Old Pal (ridden by Shane Kelly for trainer Jeremy Noseda) defeated US-bred colts Palavicini (Giant's Causeway-Cara Fantasy, by Sadler's Wells) & Spring Of Fame (Grand Slam-Bloomy, by Polish Numbers). Your Old Pal was a 30,000 guineas (A$66,000) yearling at the 2007 UK Tattersalls October Sale & took his record to 2 wins from 3 starts for £34,169 (A$71,000) earnings.
