El Roca To Trial Today

Tuesday, 5th August 2014

Talented Kiwi El Roca (Fastnet Rock-Rubimill, by Rubiton) will have his final hit-out on home soil this morning before travelling to Australia to commence his spring carnival campaign, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 4YO son of Fastnet Rock will step out over 1040m in the opening heat at the Te Teko trials today. El Roca will open his spring campaign in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 16 August, before a likely tilt at the Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at the same venue two weeks later. "He's due to fly over to Melbourne on Saturday night," co-trainer Trent Busuttin said. "He'll head toward the Regal Roller Stakes." Trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young will be hoping to land an elusive Gr1 win with the well-bred entire to secure his future at stud.
