Fast 'N' Rocking Rose Ride For Prebble
Melbourne Cup winning jockey Brett Prebble will ride talented 3YO Fast 'n' Rocking (Fastnet Rock-For the Good Times, by Hennessy) in the $1 million Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 14, reports racingnetwork.com.au. Prebble, who won last year's Melbourne Cup aboard Green Moon for leviathan owner Lloyd Williams, is committed to Williams' stable during the spring but has been granted special permission to ride the David Hayes colt. "I've spoken to Lloyd and he's alright about it," explained Prebble. "It is a million dollar race and Fast 'n' Rocking is one the favourites and rightly so. He's a lovely, exciting colt who's looking for more ground." Fast 'n' Rocking, who won last weekend's Gr3 McNeil Stakes, is currently second favourite with the TAB ($4.60) for the Golden Rose behind the unlucky McNeil runner-up Prince Harada ($3.60).
