Mare rocks at Trentham
Rock ‘n’ Pop’s daughter Rock ‘n’ Affair is repaying the patience invested in her and she looks set to make her mark in good company.
The four-year-old beat stakes winner Gift Of Power at Trentham today to post her third win in five appearances.
“It was a good effort and I’ve always rated her, she’s by a good Waikato Stud stallion,” trainer Kevin Gray said.
“I’ve got a lot of time for this mare and Howard Forbes has been a very good owner of mine.”
Courtesy of a canny ride by Tony Allan, Rock ‘n’ Affair settled in the trail from a wide gate.
When Allan popped her out in the straight she finished determinedly for an impressive win.
She is a daughter of Stravinskys Affair, the winner of four races from Gray’s stable.
