Robbie Rocket tops ton

By Peter Wharton

The four-year-old Robbie Rocket became the fourth progeny of leading percentage sire Follow The Stars to earn $100,000 or more when he emerged successful at Gloucester Park on November 4.

It was his 10th success and spiked his lifetime earnings to $113,100.

Atomicstar, a West Australian-bred son of Follow The Stars, maintained his devastating form on the eastern seaboard with back-to-back successes at Menangle in 1:52 and 1:53.3. The gelding has won four races at the Sydney headquarters track this season.

Follow The Stars, a former NZ and Australian 2YO of the Year, left 11 individual winners in three different States for the month.

Other winners sired by him were the two-year-old fillies Fly To Fame (Gloucester Park) and Hollywoodbound (Redcliffe), the three-year-olds Follow Rocknroll (Narrogin and Collie) and Path Of Gold (Collie) and older performers in Stars Of Gold (Northam), Zyanya (Northam), Fiord (Northam), Our Glowing Star (Narrogin), Eilish Star (Pinjarra) and Nightwatch Star (Tamworth).

Former two-year-old sensation Fly Like An Eagle continues to churn out the winners from his first two WA crops.

The Mach Three sired the Gloucester Park winners Velocipede (2YO) and Me Flash (3YO) and other three-year-old winners in Stereophonic (Pinjarra), Zuede (Northam) and Harrier Jet (Narrogin).

Fly Like An Eagle’s current two-year-old crop has produced 12 winners from just 38 foals, while his three-year-old crop of 64 foals has left 34 winners, an amazing winners-to-foals strike rate.

Allwood Stud, the home of Fly Like An Eagle, bred nine individual winners of 10 races during November.

Their winners included the Menangle victor Kissed By A Rose (1:53.9), Make It Happen, Fly To Fame, Zyanya, Follow Rocknroll, Our Glowing Star, Path Of Gold, Nightwatch Star and Eilish Star.
