The emergence of Rock ‘n’ Pop’s first crop progeny into classic contending autumn three-year-olds is hardly surprising given the son of Fastnet Rock’s superior race performances and dam-line which reveals Group One performances at the Derby and Oaks distances.

Rock ‘n’ Pop’s sire Fastnet Rock has not only proved himself a Champion Sire with superior runners of all ages over all distances but his influence as a sire of sires is now adding greatly to his legacy.

The strength of Rock ‘n’ Pop’s maternal pedigree with its stamina component is now showing with runners such as The Lord Mayor who finished a close-up and unlucky fourth in the New Zealand Derby Gr.1 of 2018. Sunshine Coast Guineas Gr.3 placed Go Dixie and Sunline Vase Gr.3 runner-up and Oaks runner Gold Spice also now numbers among Rock ‘n’ Pop’s four Stakes performers and winners in four different countries.

The influence of Sir Tristram through Rock ‘n’ Pop’s New Zealand Derby Gr.1 winning dam Popsy is a factor. The multiple Group winning New Zealand Filly of the Year Popsy won six times from 1600 metres to 2400 metres.

Stamina is further derived through Rock ‘n’ Pop’s second dam, Beks, a Stakes winner of 10 races up to 2500 metres, by staying sire In The Purple. Rock ‘n’ Pop’s three-quarter sister Lilakyn won the Listed Fielding Gold Cup over 2400 metres and finished second in the Brisbane Cup Gr.1.

Rock ‘n’ Pop’s ability to sire progeny who can produce a turn of foot is consummate of his own brilliance; his final 600m in 33.24s in the New Zealand 2000 Guineas Gr.1 win is an inherent trait from his own sire Fastnet Rock who was champion three-year-old colt of Australia, and in the same year was crowned Champion Sprinter of Australia in 2004-05.

Rock ‘n’ Pop offers a balance of speed and stamina and with his progeny now reaching racing maturity, the ingredients are all in place for an exciting future.

In the sale ring, yearlings and two-year-olds by Rock ‘n’ Pop have been highly sought after by international buyers. At the 2017 Karaka Ready to Run sale, two-year-olds by Rock ‘n’ Pop sold for up to $110,000 and in 2018, his Book One yearlings sold for up to $90,000 and averaged $41,250 – more than 4.5 times his service fee.
