The 2014 book for first-year stallion A Rocknroll Dance is now full and closed, according to Diamond Creek Farm's Adam Bowden.
A Rocknroll Dance p,2,1:49.1; 3,1:48.1f; 4,1:47.2 ($2,429,441), a multiple world champion and winner of the Meadowlands Pace, stands at Diamond Creek of Pennsylvania for a stud fee of $6,000.
"I'd like to thank all who booked to him, from the first one to the last one,” Bowden said. "We believed in him as a racehorse and we believe in him now as he embarks on his next career.
"His book is filled with quality from top to bottom. We're breeding 19 of our own top mares to him, including three millionaires and two Dan Patch winners,” he added.
Included in that group is Diamond Creek's sparkling 2012 acquisition See You At Peelers p,2,1:51.3f; 3,1:49.2f ($1,573,260), a world champion and two-time Dan Patch award winner.
Other top mares in A Rocknroll Dance's initial court include Loyal Opposition, Loving Caroline, Isabella Blue Chip, Tidewaterdragonfly, Blood Diamond and Apple, the latter two from the immediate maternal families of great producers Cathedra and Arterra.
"Dance is a gorgeous stallion, and hopefully his foals will have that great Western Hanover look that his inbreeding suggests,” Bowden said. "I think they'll be very popular attractions at the select yearling sales.” (Diamond Creek Farm)
