Rockdale Wins Rough Habit Plate

Monday, 25th May 2009

NZ Highview Stud's Gr2-winning Australian-bred stallion Danroad (Danehill-Strawberry Girl, by Strawberry Road) added a group success when front-running gelding Rockdale (Danroad-Komplete Kaos, by Desert Sun) scored a half-length victory in the $125,000 Gr3 Rough Habit Plate (2020m) for 3YOs at Doomben. Rockdale (ridden by Damian Browne for trainer John Morrisey) defeated Rezyana (Redoute's Choice-Lady's Delight, by Local Talent) & Larry's Never Late (Pentire-Laebeel, by Zabeel). Rockdale (a NZ$135,000 purchase at the 2007 NZ Bloodstock Ready-To-Run Sale) now has 3 wins (also including 2008's Gr1 T.J.Smith over 1600m at Eagle Farm) & 3 runners-up (including 2008's Gr2 QTC Sires' Produce Stakes over 1400m at Eagle Farm) from 13 starts for $533,850 earnings.
