GEAUX ROCKET RIDE wins at Santa Anita!
GEAUX ROCKET RIDE wins at Santa Anita! From the TDN….Geaux Rocket Ride (c, 3, Candy Ride (Arg)–Beyond Grace, by Uncle Mo) was a live first starter in a $67,000 3yo, 6f, Msw on 1/29 in a fast 1:09.52 by 5 3/4 lengths, after clocking a nice work back on Dec. 30 (5f, :59.60, 1/72) for the Mandella barn. The colt led from the rail, but was chased down the backstretch by heavy favorite Sonoran. Rounding the far turn, the pacesetter began to steadily extend his lead, and past the eighth pole kept to the task to score by 5 3/4-lengths. The winner is the first racehorse purchased by Dana and Jim Bernhard, who purchased the historic Pin Oak Stud just outside of Versailles, KY late last year.
