FRESH from her success in Mount Gambier’s flagship trotting event last weekend, rising star Rocknroll Baby is aiming for consecutive country cups on Sunday.
This time around the Greg Norman-trained mare is engaged in Kapunda’s feature, where she has drawn to lead throughout from the pole.
Rocknroll Baby has made a seamless transition to open company this season, with her victories including the Gramel and Hambletonian Cups.
“She is in top form and is a big chance again on the weekend,” Norman said. “The draw and handicaps have helped her, so I expect her to go very close.
“At times she can put in a rough stride, but she’s been on her best behaviour for a while now.
“She’s only baby still and is going against older horses, but if she trots, she’ll be hard to beat.”
Planning to give the daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven a few easy days following her upcoming assignment, Norman will then primed the four-year-old for the Port Pirie Trotters’ Cup in a fortnight.
“For now I will keep following the country cups with her, with Port Pirie next,” Norman said. “Further into the season she has the Breeders Crown in Victoria.”
