George Brennan pushed the son of Rocknroll Hanover three-wide and to the lead on the second time on the backstretch, going by the pacesetting Art History [Western Ideal], who hung on for second. It was four and a half lengths to Sweet Rock [Rocknroll Hanover] in third.

The mile was clocked in 1:53.1, a personal best for the Tony Alagna trainee.

Gold Rocks, a $15,000 Lexington Selected Yearling Sale purchase, picked up his third win with three seconds and one third in 13 starts this year for earnings of $58,580. Lifetime, he has finished in the money in 11 of 20 starts for $124,798, including a two-year-old stakes win in the $96,200 Babic Pace and a third in last year’s $52,650 New Jersey Futurity.

The brown colt races for Mystical Marker Farms LLC of Dyer, IN; Eagles Soar Partners of Staten Island, NY; Alan Alber of Thornhill, OH and Joe Sbrocco of Brecksville, OH.
