Frank Bellino, the owner of Rock N Roll Heaven, and Perretti Farms have reached an agreement in principle for the horse to stand at stud at Perretti Farms in 2011. Rock N Roll Heaven joins the stallion roster at Perretti, where his sire Rocknroll Hanover already stands at stud.
Meanwhile, Rock N Roll Heaven is at The Red Mile preparing to race Saturday in the Bluegrass for 3-year-old pacing colts. Trainer Bruce Saunders said the colt came out of the Breeders Crown in great shape and will train lightly on Thursday morning.
“I think he’s really still on edge and sharp,” said Saunders from The Red Mile backstretch Wednesday morning. "I plan to train him lightly on Thursday morning, and we'll take his blood and scope him just to make sure he's fine and healthy."
Saunders said it’s possible the colt will be supplemented to the Tattersalls the following week, but he’ll wait until the Bluegrass is over before making a decision.
