A Rocknroll Dance colt too good in Grand Circuit feature

24 September 2018 | Written by Nikki Reed

The Brian Brown trained A Rocknroll Dance colt Proof continues to be one of the standout juveniles in North America in 2018, with the Pennsylvania Sire Stakes champion far too good for his rivals in the $120,000 "The Elevation" at Hoosier Park on September 21.

The Diamond Creek Farm homebred found the lead by the half way mark in the feature race for 2-year-old colts and geldings, controlled the tempo through the middle stages, then drew clear of the field in the straight to score, untouched by reinsman Scott Zeron, by two lengths in 1:52 flat.

The win was Proof's fifth victory in seven race-day starts, with the colt having finished second in his remaining two race-day appearances. He is the winner of $272,591 in stakes money to date - making him the second richest 2-year-old male pacer in North America this year.

He is the second foal out of the $1.9 million earning Real Artist mare Ginger And Fred.
