La Rocket Wins Chatswood Spring Classic

Thursday, 12th November 2009

In Australia, European Horse-Of-The-Year & 7-time Gr1-winning Coolmore shuttler Rock Of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a black-type success when favoured 5YO gelding La Rocket (Rock Of Gibraltar-La Bella Dama, by Desert Sun) scored a 1.75-lengths victory in yesterday’s $100,000 Listed Chatswood Stud Spring Classic (2000m) at Seymour in Victoria. La Rocket (ridden by Stephen Baster for trainer Dale Sutton) defeated fellow 5YO geldings Oronero (Colombia- L'Anello, by Groom Dancer) & top-weighted Davcon (Anglia-Royal Persepoly, by Persepolis). La Rocket (a $300,000 yearling at the 2006 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) took his record to 5 wins & 12 placings (including last start’s Listed Johnnie Walker Stakes over 1800m at Flemington on November 3) from 25 starts for $287,342 earnings.
