Long Live Rock made his local debut a winning one in Saturday’s Open Pace at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

Owned and trained by Rene Allard, the seven-year-old son of Rocknroll Hanover dropped in fourth in the early going in the $15,000 feature that was contested at a distance of 1-1/16 miles. Billy Dobson moved Long Live Rock first over on fellow Yonkers invader UF Rockin Dragon (Jim Devaux) and overpowered that rival en route to an impressive win that covered the 1-1/16 miles in 1:57.3. UF Rockin Dragon held on to win a photo for place while Artful Way (Frank Coppola Jr.) earned the show spot.

Long Live Rock was the 5-2 co-favourite in Saturday’s Open, returning $7 to win. The exacta and triple came back $87.50 and $432, respectively.
