Group 1 double for Rock N Roll Heaven

Rock N Roll Heaven further enhanced his credentials with a Group 1 siring double on Saturday night.

Wolf Stride extended his win streak to six with a strong front running display in the $100,000 Metropolitan Region Championships Final.

The star pacer began the race as favourite and he gave his backers no reason to be concerned.

He settled in front and ran the field along in solid fashion. On the home bend Anthony Butt gave Wolf Stride some rein and he sprinted clear to win.

The Emilio and Mary Rosati bred pacer has now won seven of his thirteen starts for $83,320.

While at Newcastle, Kanye Crusader led and scored his maiden Group 1 win in a thrilling finish.

After speeding to the front early, the son of Rock N Roll Heaven was able to dictate terms and fend off his rivals to win in a photo finish.

Kanye Crusader was bred by Clayton Harmey out of the Fake Left mare Khloe. At stud she has a perfect record with four winners from four foals.

The win pushed Kanye Crusader’s lifetime earnings to $86,280.
