A Rocknroll Dance filly takes out Adioo Volo division

31 July 2018 | Written by Nikki Reed

The Chris Oakes trained A Rocknroll Dance filly Sidewalk Dancer bounced back from illness to score a comfortable win in a $40,000 Adioo Volo division for 3-year-old pacing fillies at The Meadows on July 28.

Already a multiple stakes race winner this year, Sidewalk Dancer was an unbackable favourite in her division, and as expected made light work of the race, moving up to sit parked at the three-quarter marker before kicking clear in the straight and coasting to a very easy, uncontested one length win in 1:52.2.

One of the fastest 3-year-old fillies this year on a five-eighths of a mile track, with a 1:50.6 victory in a Pennsylvania Sire Stakes division, the daughter of A Rocknroll Dance has now won nine races and banked $182,779 in stakes.

Bred by White Birch Farm, Sidewalk Dancer is out of the Life Sign mare Road Sign, making her a half-sister to the millionaire pacer Domethatagain and from the maternal family of Tinted Cloud - the sire of triple millionaire Smoken Up.

The past few days have also seen some nice performances by two Australian bred A Rocknroll Dance 2-year-olds, with Whereyabinboppin extending his undefeated record to three straight wins with a 21.8m romp in a career best 1:56 at Bathurst on Sunday and the Western Australian Group 1 winner Its Rock And Roll also lowering his lifetime mark to an impressive 1:53.9 when winning at Pinjarra on Monday afternoon.
