Race favourite and previously unbeaten sprinter, Miracles Of Life, finished fourth after sustaining multiple bouts of contact in the final straight.

Fast ‘N’ Rocking has now won one of his nine race starts and has earned more than $500,000 in prize money.

Trainer David Hayes was thrilled to see Fast ‘N’ Rocking finally score a race victory in today’s 2013 HDF McNeil Stakes.

“He’s a really exciting colt,” Hayes said.

“I just love the way he has the tactical speed and just cruises.

“It was a bit rough and ready late.

“As far as I’m concerned he’ll be very hard to beat in anything he runs in from now on.

“It’s a bad tag to have the best maidener in Australia.

“So I’m very happy.”

Fast ‘N’ Rocking will now possibly run in the $1 million Golden Rose at Rosehill Gardens in two weeks’ time, before running in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas on October 12, 2013.

“He’s definitely heading for the guineas and we’re really looking forward to it,” Hayes said.

“He may go to the Golden Rose, it’s a real stallion’s race now.

Jockey Brett Prebble admitted that Fast ‘N’ Rocking has a long way to go before reaching his best.

“He’s got untapped ability but he’s got a mind of his own,” Prebble said.

“He panicked and he slipped and he lost his balance.

“Coming back to scale he threw me off him.

“He needs racing and he needs that good education to give him that confidence.”
