Rock N Roll Xample Aims For Blossom Series Sweep

Published: April 5, 2014 01:00 am EDT

After an impressive victory in the opening leg of the Blossom Series last week at Woodbine Racetrack, Rock N Roll Xample repeated her effort with a convincing score in the lone, second leg division Friday.

The sophomore pacing filly will look for the series sweep in the $36,000 final on Friday, April 11 at Woodbine.

Outtathewheelhouse (Jonathan Drury) gunned her way to the front to lead past the opening station in a quick :26.3, ahead of Polk Dot Hanover (Billy Davis Jr.).

Heading towards the half in the $15,000 tilt, James MacDonald pulled on the right line and aimed Rock N Roll Xample out of third and to command before the mid-way point in :56.2.

From there, the heavily favoured daughter of Rocknroll Hanover guided her rivals past three-quarters in 1:24.4, before opening up to score a comfortable four and three quarter length victory in 1:53.4. Noble Jilly (Jody Jamieson) finished second with Wildcat Magic (Chris Christoforou) third.

Trained by Shawn Robinson for Exeter, Ont. owner/breeder Robert Hamather, Rock N Roll Xample increased her bankroll to $66,090. The bay lass has a 6-2-1 record from 11 starts this season.

She paid $3.90 to win.
