Rockn Stien, made his fall debut at Pompano Park a winning one on Wednesday (November 22) by wiring a classy group of Open trotters for driver Peter Wrenn.

The five-year-old gelded son of Valley Victor, trained by Melanie Wren for Wrenn Racing and the M T Pockets Stables, pushed the wings of the starting gate out of the way at the start and proceeded through panels of :28, :57.4 and 1:25.2 before a :29.1 finale held off the late charging Boli, driven by Wally Hennessey, by one and a quarter lengths.

Prairie Fortune, driven by Jim Meittinis, finished third, two lengths away, while Railee Workable and My Revenuer earned the minor awards.

Rockn Stien, who has a 1:53.1 mark which was set earlier this year over the five-eighths mile south Florida oval, had been making appearances at several Midwestern tracks throughout the summer and early fall before travelling south to tackle the best at Pompano.

Rockn Stien has earned $68,880 this year and $214,745 overall on the strength of a 17-15-8 scorecard which has been amassed from 68 career starts.

As the slight 9-5 favorite, Rockn Stien paid $5.80 to win.

Pompano racing will continue on Sunday night, as the track will host Super Night, which will feature the top two and three-year-old Florida-breds that will be shooting for a share of over $420,000 in purses.

Five non-wagering events will begin at 6:30 p.m. The 11 race pari-mutuel program will then begin at 7:20 p.m. The Sunday night card will also feature a Super Hi-5 carryover of $21,578.
