Neena Rock Wins Gr3 Cuddle Stakes
At Trentham in New Zealand, Gr1-winning Danehill stallion Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) added a group success when 5YO mare Neena Rock (Fastnet Rock-Feminine Wiles, by Miesque's Son) scored by 0.5-length for trainer Warren Bolton in the NZ$70,000 Gr3 Cuddle Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+ f&m, over fellow 5YO mare Zurella (Zabeel-Doneze Girl, by Volksraad) & 4YO mare Waikaha (Towkay-Harinui, by Generous). This was the first stakes victory for Neena Rock who took her record to 4 wins and 6 placings from 13 starts for NZ$104,250 earnings. Neena Rock was purchased by Bolton for $80,000 at the 2010 Inglis Premier Yearling Sale from the draft of Shady Lane Thoroughbreds.
