Stud graduate impressive at Geelong
26 Jan 2014Rock Vantage continues to make impressive progress through the grades in Victoria for top trainer Danny O’Brien.
The Hallmark Stud graduate has now won three times in his brief career with his latest success at Geelong on January 22nd.
The four-year-old emphasised his staying promise with a commanding performance in his first attempt over 2200 metres.
A son of Rock Of Gibraltar, he was sold by Hallmark for $95,000 to the bid of O’Brien at Karaka in 2011.
Rock Vantage is out of the Woodman mare Suitely, who has a perfect record at stud with all four of her foals to race having won.
They include the Listed Talindert Stakes winner Casquests and the Group placed Merensky Reef.
Suitely is a half-sister to Flak Jacket, who won six races including the Gr 2 Alister Clark Stakes.
