PERRETTI’S ROCKNROLL HANOVER TOPS EARNINGS; BROODMARE RANKS EXPANDING

CREAM RIDGE, NJ – April 18, 2012 -- New Jersey’s own Rocknroll Hanover is the leading money winning sire for pacers, thus far in 2012, remarkable considering his oldest foals are only five years old.

To date, Rocknroll Hanover’s sons and daughters have banked $2,816,035 this year with 234 starters from 606 foals. His offspring lead runner-up Camluck [$2,401,342 with 328 starters from 1,694 foals] by more than $400,000.

Two of Rocknroll Hanover’s major 3-year-old prospects, A Rocknroll Dance p,2,1:49.1 and Pet Rock p.2, 1:52.3, have already qualified at Hoosier Park and are pointing toward the New Jersey Sire Stakes opening leg on May 19 at the Meadowlands

Perretti Farm’s is still seeking broodmares but has already acquired some top prospects to breed to their stallions, Muscles Yankee and Rocknroll Hanover.

Trotting mares Some Girls 3, 1:56.4, [Conway Hall-Emotional Rescue], winner of more than $400,000 and Susies Magic [4, 1:52.1, Dream Vacation-Kash Echo, $700,946] are the newest additions to the Perretti Farms broodmare roster. Both will be bred to Muscles Yankee for 2012

Prominent new pacing mares include Me And My Baby [p,1:51, Artiscape-My Baby And Me], a winner of $607,841; Place Your Best [Cambest-In A Safe Place], a sister to 2011 Pacer of the Year Foiled Again [1:46.1 $3,506,055]; Sir Erika Z Tam, a Bettors Delight sister to Maltese Artist [p,1:48.3f $2,322,671] and Read All About It, a Tell All sister to this year’s hotshot pacing colt Social Network [p,3, 1:51.4f]. The pacing mares will be bred to Rocknroll Hanover for 2012.
