A brilliant racehorse and outstanding sire, Hard Spun experienced yet another phenomenal year at stud in 2015. Different individuals have taken home high profile victories like the Diana, Awesome Again, and Gold Cup at Santa Anita. Of course, his winning Smart Strike dam comes from a strong family that includes Dream About, Lockout, Sleepless Knight, etc.
Rocketry is in training with Jimmy Jerkens at Saratoga Race Course. He became a “TDN Rising Star” from his race at Belmont on June 9 when he broke his maiden by blasting away from the the field in the final furlong of his 1 3/8 turf race. He rocketed to his second career victory on July 28 in Saratoga earning his best Beyer figure to date – a 94. Rocketry is improving with each start and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for him.
He has been nominated to the G3 $300,000 Saranac Stakes to be run Saturday, September 2 at Saratoga. The race is a 1 1/8 mile turf event for straight three-year-olds.
