Rock Of Gibraltar Adds France Gr3
At Bordeaux in France, 7-time Gr1-winning former shuttler Rock of Gibraltar (Danehill-Offshore Boom, by Be My Guest) added a group success when 4YO entire Celtic Rock (Rock Of Gibraltar-Luna Celtica, by Celtic Swing) scored a 1.5-lengths victory for Spanish trainer Jose Rodriguez in the €80,000 Gr3 Prix Andre Baboin (2000m) for 3YOs+, over fellow 4YO entire Bonfire (Manduro-Night Frolic, by Night Shift) & 4YO mare Glowing Cloud (Dylan Thomas-Power Girl, by Dashing Blade). Having his first start outside of Spain, Celtic Rock's maiden stakes victory took his record to 8 wins & 6 placings (including last start's Listed Copa de Oro de San Sebastian at San Sebastian) from 17 starts for €137,700 earnings.
