After an impressive victory in the opening leg of the Blossom Series last week at Woodbine, Rock N Roll Xample repeated her effort with a convincing score in the lone, second-leg division Friday at Woodbine. The pacing miss will look for the $36,000 series sweep on Friday, April 11, at Woodbine.
Outtathewheelhouse (Jonathan Drury) gunned their way to the front to lead past the opening station in a quick :26.3, ahead of Polk Dot Hanover (Billy Davis, Jr.). Heading towards the half in the $15,000 tilt, James MacDonald pulled on the right line and aimed Rock N Roll Xample out of third and to command before the midway point in :56.2.
From there, the heavily-favored daughter of Rocknroll Hanover guided her rivals past three-quarters in 1:24.2, before opening up on her eight rivals to score a comfortable four and three-quarter length victory in 1:53.4. Noble Jilly (Jody Jamieson) finished second with Wildcat Magic (Chris Christoforou) third.
Trained by Shawn Robinson for owner/breeder Robert Hamather, Rock N Roll Xample increased her bankroll to $66,090. The bay lass has a 6-2-1 record from 11 starts this season. She paid $3.90 to win. (WEG)
