More Stakes Success for Fast 'n' Rocking
Second in the Group I MRC Blue Diamond Stakes and fifth in the Golden Slipper, Fast ‘n’ Rocking (7g Fastnet Rock x For the Good Times, by Hennessy) is still going strong at age seven after scoring a tenacious win over Religify in the Listed MRC Weekend Hussler Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. A hard horse to run down Religify was looking the likely winner of this 1400 metre contest with a furlong to run, but under determined riding from Luke Nolen, Fast ‘n’ Rocking prevailed to win by a neck. The victory ended a run of outs for the Hayes / Dabernig trained gelding, who had been winless since scoring in a Listed race at Caulfield on October 14 two years ago. “He’s been a bit frustrating for punters, but he’s won over $1.3 million, so he’s done a great job for his owners,” said Tom Dabernig.
