LONDON...The field for this year's $157,000 Camluck Classic has now been finalized.

Back to defend his Camluck Classic title in the Ron Burke trainee Rockin Ron. The $1.7 million harness racing winner put together a sizzling performance last year when he set a new track record of 1:50.1. The seven-year-old gelding will have Louis Roy aboard.

Rockin Speed, trained by Jared & Joe Seekman, is the final starter for this years rich classic.

The son of Rockin Image is fresh off a fourth place finish in the Confederation Cup after finishing second in his elimination. The Indiana Sires Stakes graduate had a mark of 1:50.2 taken this year at Miami Valley. Billy Davis is expected to drive.
