NZ Gr1 Star Has First Start For Waterhouse Stable

Friday, 24th August 2012

Million dollar yearling and Gr1 winner Rock 'n' Pop (Fastnet Rock-Popsy, by Sir Tristram) makes his debut for trainer Gai Waterhouse in tomorrow's Gr2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm in Sydney. A winner of 3 of his 9 starts (including the Gr1 NZ Two Thousand Guineas), Rock 'n' Pop ran second in the Gr1 NZ Derby at his last start in New Zealand, before failing in the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas. The valuable colt is being aimed at the Gr1 Epsom Handicap on October 5 in an effort to add an Australian Gr1 victory to his resume.
