ROCK N ROLL HEAVEN MOVING TO DEO VOLENTE

Rock N Roll Heaven moving to Deo Volente
From HarnessRacing.com
September 10, 2015

Joe Bellino, who shares ownership of Rock N Roll Heaven with his father, Frank, told harnessracing.com Thursday afternoon that the 8-year-old pacing stallion will stand stud in 2016 at Deo Volente Farm in New Jersey.

The 2010 Horse of the Year had stood the past four years at Blue Chip Farms in New York.

Rock N Roll Heaven bred just 59 mares this year, and Bellino said he and his father had decided to explore moving the stallion elsewhere. Bellino said several farms were interested, and that a deal elsewhere was ready to be signed, until his father decided Thursday morning on Deo Volente.

"We've been disappointed in his last couple of breeding books,” said Bellino. "Blue Chip tried their best with him and I know they wanted to keep him, even until the end. We had a bunch of offers on the table from different farms…but I went and sat with Dad, and he said, ‘Joe, I want him to go to Deo Volente Farms. Regardless of the money and anything, I want to help Jersey. (Jeff) Gural has put in a lot of money and it's time for somebody to send a really good sire to Jersey. Instead of everybody running away, maybe some people should run to help. Let's do the right thing.'

"I called Blue Chip and notified them and I called Mike (Gulotta, owner of Deo Volente), and he started to talk, but I told Mike he didn't have to talk anymore that we're sending him the horse. He said, "Oh my God, are you serious? I can't believe it.'”

Bellino said the 2016 stud fee for Rock N Roll Heaven has yet to be determined. His first foals are 3 year olds this year, led by the fillies Sassa Hanover p, 1:49.4 ($704,002), Band Of Angels p, 1:50 ($350,245) and Divine Caroline p, 1:49.4f ($344,333).
