The King of Pop is gone, but rock 'n roll is here to stay – Rocknroll Hanover, that is.

In Saturday’s $1 million Metro Pace for freshman colts and $810,300 Shes A Great Lady for juvenile fillies at Mohawk Racetrack, eight of the 20 finalists will be New Jersey-sired; and of that group, six will be from the first crop of Rocknroll Hanover.

In the Metro, carded as Race 7, the 'Garden State' is represented by Sportswriter (by Artsplace), and four sons of Rocknroll Hanover – Woodstock, Rock N Roll Heaven, Rock Me Please and World of Rocknroll. Sportswriter and Woodstock were both elimination winners.

In the Shes A Great Lady (Race 8), Cams Card Shark filly Cannae Cammie will be joined by a pair of Rocknroll Hanover daughters: Put On A Show and Rock N Soul, both of which won elims.

“He looks like the most significant first crop stallion since Artsplace and before him No Nukes," commented Bob Marks, spokesperson for Perretti Farms where Rocknroll Hanover stands stud.

Thus far, Rocknroll Hanover has had 88 starters with 42 wins and $973,689 in earnings. Topping that group is Metro finalist Rock N Roll Heaven with $134,286 banked.

Perretti Farms of Cream Ridge, New Jersey shares ownership in Rocknroll Hanover with Jeffrey Snyder of New York City and Lothlorien Equestrian of Cheltenham, Ont.
