Aust-Bred Rocket Man Hits Timeform 130 In Singapore
In Singapore, the scintillating 5-lengths victory by Australian-bred 5YO gelding Rocket Man (Viscount-Macrosa, by McGinty) in last weekend's Gr1 Lion City Cup (1200m) at Kranji (to take the race for the 3rd successive year) has attracted a Timeform rating of 130 to make him the 2nd highest-rated sprinter in the world, behind only unbeaten Australian mare Black Caviar (currently on 135). Rocket Man (a $60,000 yearling consigned by Tyreel Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions National Sale on the Gold Coast) boasts 15 wins & 4 runners-up from 19 starts.
