We’re Gonna Rock Wins 2012 Bobbie Lewis Quality

Mark Kavanagh-trained gelding We’re Gonna Rock signalled his potential for bigger sprints this year when winning the Group 3 2012 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) at Flemington.

We're Gonna Rock on their way to winning the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality 2012

The six-year-old, who was previously seen running second to Black Caviar in the Goodwood in May, hit the line strongly to win by a long neck ahead of Spirit Of Boom and Title.

After showing promise as a youngster, the son of Fastnet Rock had to be gelded following a disappointing one-start autumn campaign last year and he has responded impressively.

Kavanagh attributed the gelding operation to his successful autumn campaign and hinted he could feature in some the Group 1 sprints this spring.

“He was just a massive horse and he was just too big for his knees and joints,” Kavanagh said.

“There is a lot of improvement in him today and there isn’t a Black Caviar this spring.”

Jockey Michael Rodd also said the gelding operation had greatly improved the six-year-old who has now won five of 15 starts.

“He’s a lot lighter on his feet, since they cut him he’s lost a lot of weight. He’s light all over so he’s feeling a lot better,” Rodd said.

“We know he’s got class and it’s just good to see him win a race.

“He ran second to Black Caviar and he’s shown that he is good at running a place but it’s just good to get him out there today in a quality field and win like that.”

There are a lot of serious spring contenders to come out of this race so to back them at great odds as they move forward you have to be betting at bookmaker.com.au.
