Gold Rocks drew off to a four and three-quarter length victory in the $15,000 elimination for the Lou Babic Memorial, the seventh race on Saturday, August 31 at Freehold Raceway.

Only Nubble Light, who finished last in the field of nine, failed to advance to the $96,200 Babic Final on September 7.

The Babic Filly division drew six and all will earn a spot on the gate in the $61,900 final also on September 7.

Gold Rocks, driven by George Brennan and trained by Tony Alagna, paced the mile in 1:56 flat, posting his first win in his third career start. The son of Rocknroll Hanover races for Eagles Soar Partners, Alan Alber, Joe Sbrocco and Mystical Marker Farms LLC.

In addition to Gold Rocks, those qualifying for the Babic Final are (in order of finish): Rocknroll Reality, Rock Absorber, Rock N Roll Legacy, In The Clear, Sweet Rock, Useful Hanover and Unadorned Hanover.

The Babics are restricted to two-year-old New Jersey-sired pacers and are sponsored by the New Jersey Sire Stakes program.
