Rocking On Wins Grafton Cup

Friday, 14th July 2006

In Australia yesterday, NZ Cambridge Stud's multiple champion sire Zabeel (Sir Tristram-Lady Giselle, by Nureyev) added a black-type success when 5YO gelding Rocking On (Zabeel-Lambert Miss, by Danzatore) prevailed in a 3-way photo-finish to the $160,000 Listed Grafton Cup (2400m) in NSW. Rocking On (ridden by James Innes for trainer Gai Waterhouse) scored by a long-neck from 4YO gelding Gaze On (Intergaze-Joleur, by Bite The Bullet) with a further short-head to fellow 5YO gelding Victory Charm (Victory Note-Charm And Chase, by Jade Hunter). Rocking On (a NZ$130,000 yearling at the 2002 NZB Premier Sale at Karaka) now has 6 wins & 7 placings from 19 starts for $239,400 earnings; he is a full brother to Gr3 NZ St Leger winner Sunray & is from the immediate family of Gr1 VRC Sires' Produce Stakes winner Millward, dual Gr1 winner Great Command & stakes-winners Headcutter, Mr Merrymaker & Force Of Impact.
