Premier Rockstar was a rock star Sunday, July 7 as he cruised to victory in the $14,900 final of the Mark Austin Pacing Series at Dresden Raceway.

Toxic Hanover and Tyler Borth used the pocket to their advantage and went right to the front to set fractions of :28.2, 58.4 and 1:28 with Premier Rockstar and Scott Young nestled in second. Nagle pulled first over for Keith Jones at the half and pushed the leader to the top of the stretch while Premier Rockstar used a gap behind the top three to tip three wide and charge on the outside for the win in 1:57.3.

The three-year-old A Rocknroll Dance gelding is owned by Premier and Associates of Howell Michigan and trained by Robert Young. Premier Rockstar was also the winner of the $12,000 Sharpes Series at Hanover Raceway on June 15.

In other action Sunday, Blissfullannmarie rallied from off the pace to beat Squirt who was looking for her fifth win in a row. Heavily-favoured Squirt and Nick Steward engaged in an early battle with And Now Theres You and Marc St Louis which took some wind out of the eight-year-old Mister Big mare’s sails. Blissfullannmarie and Tyler St Louis rolled to the outside and paced her last quarter in :29.4 for the victory.

The handle today was $29,607.
