Rock N Roll Heaven closed out his career with a win on Sunday night at Dover Downs, coasting to a 1:50.1 victory in the $181,913 Matron. He started from post one, took control of the race at the outset and was never threatened.
Driven by Daniel Dube, Rock N Roll Heaven paced to the first quarter in :26.3 as Brian Sears took a tuck in the two hole with Delmarvalous. No one was foolish enough to pull on Dube going to the half and Rock N Roll Heaven reached that juncture in :55. Down the backstretch Yannick Gingras had Rockin Image first-over, but by the time they reached the last turn they were fading.
Rock N Roll Heaven was opening up on the field as he broke the beam at the three-quarter station in 1:21.4. In the homestretch no one was able to challenge and he cruised under the wire first for his 21st career victory.
Rock N Roll Heaven, a son of Rocknroll Hanover owned by Frank Bellino and trained by Bruce Saunders, will now enjoy a little rest before beginning his stud career at Blue Chip Farms in New York.
