Doncaster Mile 2013 in Sights of Rock ‘n’ Pop

The Group 1 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m) stands as the primary autumn target for Rock ‘n’ Pop who will race under Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse for the final time in 2013.

Gai Waterhouse will aim Rock 'n' Pop at the 2013 Doncaster Mile

The four-year-old has been by purchased by Waikato Stud and will head there following his 2013 campaign that will begin on January 10 with the Listed 2013 Takeover Target Stakes (1200m) at Gosford.

A Group 1 winner in New Zealand, Rock ‘n’ Pop only moved to Sydney earlier this year but his spring campaign was restricted to just one start after he suffered an injury during a disappointing effort in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes.

Waterhouse has confirmed the main 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival goal will be the Doncaster but said he will also be aimed at some of the other big autumn races.

“Rock ‘n’ Pop is coming to hand so quickly. He now heads to the Takeover Target Stakes at Gosford,” Waterhouse wrote in her blog.

A son of top stallion Fastnet Rock, Rock ‘n’ Pop has had just 10 career starts, recording three wins and four minor place finishes.

The talented entire debuted with victory in September 2011 before taking out the Group 1 NZ 2000 Guineas during the same campaign.

Other highlight results include winning the Listed Karaka Mile (1600m) in January, running third in the Group 1 Darci Brahma International Stakes and second in the Group 1 New Zealand Derby.

In the Doncaster Rock ‘n’ Pop could come up against stablemate and defending Doncaster champion More Joyous who has just returned to work from a spell.
