Deceased former Raheen Stud stakes-winning & Gr1-placed stallion Shovhog (Danehill-Startling Lass, by Luskin Star) added a juvenile feature quinella when gelded son Rocket To Glory (Shovhog-English Summer, by Dodge) notched his 4th successive win with a front-running 2.25-lengths victory in the $250,000 QTIS 600 Plate (1400m) for 2YOs at Eagle Farm. Rocket To Glory (ridden by Chris Whiteley for trainer Darryl Hansen) defeated fellow geldings Noisy Ocean (Shovhog-Hepburn Rose, by Sir Tristram) & Black Cash (Show A Heart-Eminence Grise, by Sea Road). Rocket to Glory (a $20,000 yearling consigned by Raheen at the 2010 Magic Millions QTIS 600 Sale) now has 5 wins & a runner-up from 11 starts for $402,900 earnings.
