    IN WHAT is becoming a cliché, exciting trotter Rocknroll Baby is the one to beat in Sunday’s country cup.

    Winner of her last four starts – all provincial Cups – Rocknroll Baby is set to contest Victor Harbor’s flagship event.

    Despite her 20-metre handicap, the Greg Norman-trained mare is a short-priced favourite, with the astute mentor positive Rocknroll Baby can continue her domination.

    “It’s a very similar field to the one she met at Port Pirie last week, so I can’t see any reason why she won’t win again,” Norman said.

    “That said, it is racing and anything can happen, but I’m as confident as you can be before a race.”

    Also successful in the Gramel Cup earlier this season, the daughter of Rock N Roll Heaven will continue to follow the cup circuit, with Kadina her next target.

    The feature is scheduled to be run at Port Pirie on April 27.

    “She will have a short freshen-up after this weekend, then head to the Kadina Cup,” Norman said.

    While Rocknroll Baby is keeping Norman’s spirits high, he endured a “gut wrenching” part of the industry this morning.

    Close to the end of his fast work, handy youngster Culzean Castle broke down.

    After being checked by a vet, it was discovered the three-year-old had shattered his leg and had to be put down.

    “It was a tough thing to hear,” Norman said. “He was a nice type, which was still improving.

    “Unfortunately he shattered the leg, which meant there was nothing the vets could so for him.”
