No 2013 Doncaster Mile for Rock ‘N’ Pop – Retired Due to Injury

Rock ‘N’ Pop will no longer be aimed at the 2013 Doncaster Mile with connections electing to retire the four-year-old to stud following a recurrence of a previous injury problem.

Gai Waterhouse

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Rock 'N' Pop has been retired to stud and will miss the Doncaster Mile

The stallion prospect, who raced most of his career in New Zealand, has been plagued with injuries since joining Gai Waterhouse’s Randwick stables prior to the spring.

He managed just one start in the spring before injury cut short his campaign and his 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival ambitions were abandoned after the injury problems resurfaced in his sixth-place finish in the Takeover Target Stakes on January 10.

While it was to be his final year as a racehorse regardless, it is disappointing as Waterhouse rated the stallion prospect highly.

The son of Fastnet Rock will be retired to Waikato Stud where he is expected to commence duties later this year.

Before joining Waterhouse’s team, Rock ‘N’ Pop was trained by Jason Bridgman in New Zealand where he made an outstanding start to his career.

He won the Group 1 NZ Thousand Guineas and the Listed Karka Mile and recorded minor place-finishes in the Group 1 Darci Brahma International Stakes and the Group 1 New Zealand Derby.

Rock ‘N’ Pop finishes his racing career with three wins and four minor placings from 11 starts. He won over NZ$450,000.

Waterhouse may have lost a strong galloper from her autumn team but she will still unveil a star-studded lineup that includes Glencadam Gold and Laser Hawk who both showed good signs in trials at Randwick this morning.
