US 10-year-old freshman sire Rocky Bar (In Excess-To the Post, by Bold Ego) recorded his 1st winner when 2YO gelding Rockin Zola (Rocky Bar-Broccozola, by Brocco) led all-the-way for an overwhelming 18.25-lengths victory over 5 furlongs at Turf Paradise in Arizona for trainer Molly Pearson, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Rocky Bar (whose dam To The Post was a multiple stakes-winner) will stand the 2009 season at Triple AAA Ranch in Arizona & has 13 2YOs in his 1st-crop. On the track, Rocky Bar won 5 of 24 starts (including the 2001 Listed Harry Henson Stakes at Hollywood Park, plus runner-up in the 2002 Gr3 Hollywood Turf Express Handicap).
