Singapore double for Rock ‘n’ Pop
Inclement weather at Kranji in Singapore last evening didn’t rain on Rock ‘n’ Pop’s parade.
The Waikato Stud stallion was a shining light with a winning double on the card.
His son Refresh struck over 1600 metres to take his record to four wins from 14 appearances.
“I thought I would be picking up some prizemoney at best,” trainer David Kok said.
“He was up in class and I thought he would find it tougher this time.
“Plus, it was raining. I didn’t know how he would handle the conditions.
“He’s really improved, though. I think he should be able to go over more ground.”
A $31,000 Karaka yearling, Refresh is out of a half-sister to the multiple Group One winner Wall Street.
Earlier in the programme, Rock ‘n’ Pop four-year-old Lim’s Rhythm opened his account over 1800 metres.
Trained by Mark Walker, he was a deserved winner having picked up cheques in all previous outings.
Lim’s Rhythm is out of the Zabeel mare Paixanito who is from a well-performed North American black type family.
