$1million Inglis Sprint Dream for Rocketing By
Warwick Farm trainer David Pfieffer is aiming towards a lucrative pay day for smart Randwick winner Rocketing By (3c So You Think x Across the Moon, by Stratum), who is eligible for the $1million Inglis Sprint (1200m) on February 6.
Allowed to develop quietly through country and provincial racing, Rocketing By is building an impressive record and showed some serious potential with his fast finishing three-quarter length win in the 1100m Benchmark 72 event for three year-olds.
The promising So You Think colt has missed a place only once in seven starts and has the overall record of three wins and three placings with prizemoney topping $138,000, not bad for a horse bought for just $22,000 at the Inglis Scone Yearling Sale.
“I was a little bit worried about the firmer track today but he obviously got a sweet ride and got the result,” Pfieffer said.
“We’re trying to head towards that Inglis race in a couple of weeks so obviously the prize money boost will be a big help for him and we might even be able to keep Hugh Bowman on board.”
Consigned for sale by Middlebrook Valley Lodge, but bred by Segenhoe, Rocketing By is one of three winners from stakes-placed Across the Moon, a three-quarter sister by Stratum to Group I winner Melito with another close relation being Group III winner Pariah.
