Harness Racing’s first season sire A Rocknroll Dance is well represented at the up-coming New Zealand Yearling Sales where he has 39 babies for sale. 

At the Australasian Classic Yearling Sale he has 11 progeny for sale and at the Premier Sale he has 28 progeny to be sold. 

A champion racehorse from two through to four, A Rocknroll Dance (p2,1:49.1; p3,1:48.1f; p4,1:47.2 and $2,429,441 in earnings) is by Rocknroll Hanover from a half-sister to super sire Western Hanover.  You could say that A Rocknroll Dance is the best bred son of the great Rocknroll Hanover.

A Rocknroll Dance was the first pacer in history to take three consecutive sub-1:48 wins. 

- Canadian Pacing Derby elimination (1:47.3)

- Canadian Pacing Derby final (1:47.2)

- Invitational at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs (1:47.4)

A Rocknroll Dance dominated the track with his grit and toughness.  At two, he equaled  the world record and was the richest two-year old that year.  He won the Meadowlands Pace and the Battle of the Brandywine at three.

In winning The Meadowlands Pace he beat the following outstanding horses, all stallions at stud today. 

Sweet Lou ($3,484,251)

State Treasurer ($2,072,450)

Pet Rock ($1,985,820)

Thinking Out Loud ($1,957,217)

Bolt The Duer ($1,829,995)

Heston Blue Chip ($1,779,373)

Here is The Meadowlands Pace

One of the very best sons of Rocknroll Hanover, A Rocknroll Dance has been enthusiastically received by breeders in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.  The early outlook on his potential as a sire is bright, with breeders praising his offspring's strength, looks and intelligence.
