    YET to be conceived, let alone born, one foal’s value has increased following tonight’s Melton meeting.

    Proving too good in an Australasian Breeders’ Crown Final just moments ago, Rockinwithattitude will be rewarded with a long spell.

    On her way to a lush paddock, however, the filly will be served by Volstead before an embryo transfer is performed.

    Given Rockinwithattitude’s latest triumph is her fourth major victory, her offspring is destined to attract plenty of attention.

    A triple Group One winner, Rockinwithattitude boasts 17 wins and five placings from 26 starts for earnings of $333,940, placing the David Miles-trained three-year-old among the all-time great young trotters.

    “She has done a terrific job and deserves any praise she gets,” Miles said. “She’s had a pretty long campaign, which included travelling to Sydney and Brisbane and is still racing at her peak, which is testament to her fortitude.

    “That will see her out for the year…now she will be served by Volstead and have an embryo transfer.

    “Overall, I will give her eight weeks in the paddock and then bring her up slowly next season with the three and four-year-old race in Queensland midyear her main target.”

    With Miles in the cart, Rockinwithattitude was pushed away from barrier three, but was unable to cross Shesawish from the pole before being angled onto the pegs to trail the front runner.

    Finishing strongly along the sprint lane, the daughter of Aldebaran Eagle cruised to a 10-and-a-half metre win from Shesawish.

    Shes Ruby Roo was a neck away third in 1:59.9 over 2240 metres.

    “I was happy to have a look for the lead, but then was just as happy to get the sit as I knew Shesawish would take us to the sprint lane,” Miles said. “She was always travelling comfortably, and once I asked her to go, she did the rest as she pleased.”
