Unbeaten Paris Rock Wins Again
Promising Rock ‘N’ Pop filly Paris Rock followed up her winning debut on Boxing Day with another impressive win at Ballarat on Sunday.
The Henry Dwyer-trained three-year-old was ridden by Damien Thornton to an easy 3.75-length victory, indicating she has a bright future ahead.
“That was a very good win,” said Thornton. “I committed murder in front, they left me alone and we had an easy time. I just let her go a little bit quicker from the 500 so they didn’t get to me and she was always going to win.
“She gave me a nice feel and I think she’s a filly with plenty of promise.
“There’s still improvement, she’s going to get better. I don’t know a lot about the breed but they’ve got a nice one here.”
Paris Rock was bred by Curraghmore and David Butler, she is from the first crop of Waikato Stud-based sire Rock ‘N’ Pop out of the multiple race winning and stakes placed Daggers Drawn mare Que Sera.
