Rocknroll Hanover Euthanized
By Bill Finley
Among the top sires in the history of the sport, Rocknroll
Hanover died yesterday after undergoing gastric problems.
He was only 11.
He was at his new
home, a Perretti Farm's
satellite facility in
Pennsylvania, and had
been showing no signs
of problems until
yesterday when it was
apparent he was
suffering from stomach
discomfort. He was
taken to Mid-Atlantic
Equine in Ringoes, New
Jersey, where the
decision was made to
put him down.
"People are with him
24 hours in
Rocknroll Hanover, 2002-2013 Pennsylvania," said
Perretti's Bob Marks.
"They noticed he wasn't acting right. Also his stomach was
kind of bloated, so they took him right to Mid-Atlantic and
from there the vets took over. Once they got in there and
saw what they were dealing with it was not a close call about
euthanizing him. They called it a gastric impaction. What that
means is he was eating fine but it was not going past the
stomach into the intestines. Consequently the stomach kept
blowing up."
Rocknroll Hanover, bred by Hanover Farms, sold for
$190,000 at the 2001 Harrisburg Yearling Sale. He is by
Western Ideal out of the Direct Scooter mare Rich N Elegant.
Campaigned by Jeff Snyder and trained by Brett Pelling.
His first big win came in the 2004 Metro, where he scored an
upset win at 31-1 with Brian Sears driving.

As good as he was as a 2 year old, he was much better at
three. He was sensational that year, winning three huge
events, the Meadowlands Pace, the North America Cup
and the Breeders Crown. With those wins on his record, he
was named 2005 Horse of the Year.
He retired with a career record of 15 for 26 and earnings
of $2,754,038. His lifetime mark was 1:48.3, set in the
Meadowlands Pace.
"The best I ever had? Yes," Pelling said yesterday by
phone. "He was unreal. He was a big horse with high, high
speed. Rocknroll could really get it and that's what you
look for. The big ones are usually big and slow and but
could get it. That's what he passed on to his prodigy. He
obviously was a great sire and being so young it's a big
loss for the industry. He's was basically the last great
horse that I had. I'm in my office now and I'm looking at his
picture on the wall. For me, it feels like the end of an era."
Perretti Farm, a powerhouse in the breeding industry,
particularly in the early part of the 2000s,was looking for a
new pacing stallion and Marks and the Perretti team
focused in on Rocknroll Hanover.
"We were supposed to get Western Ideal and didn't get

His top performers include Rock N Roll Heaven, Put On A

$100,000 or more.
Based on money-earned, his was the leading pacing sire in
North America in 2012 when his offspring earned
$17,055,965. Bettor's Delight was second with $15.4 million.
Rocknroll Hanover shuttled to Australia during our
summers and stood there at Empire Stallions Corp.
"He sired strong horses," Marks said. "He wasn’t a brilliant
early 2-year-old as are some of his get, but by mid-summer
of his 2-year-old season he set a world record in the Metro
Pace. And from post 10, no less.”
His death occurred in the middle of the breeding season
and Marks estimated that he was bred to about 40 to 50
mares so far. He was bred to a full crop in 2012 and one of
those babies was born yesterday.
Rocknroll Hanover began his stud career in New Jersey
but with the breeding program in the state suffering through
tough times he was moved to Pennsylvania this year where
he was standing for $15,000.
"We did get some good news yesterday," Marks said. "Just

mark of 1:48.3.
He was the main attraction in a 3 horse entry from the
Pelling Stable coming into The Little Brown Jug. The other
members of the Pelling troika were Village Jolt and Cams
Fool. In the Jug, he set the pace as the heavy favorite, but
was caught in the stretch by P-Forty-Seven. In the Jug
final, it was the same but Rocknroll Hanover faded to finish
a well-beaten third.
He gained revenge for his Jug loss with two
commanding victories at The Red Mile and finished his
career by winning both his elimination and final of the
Breeders Crown at the Meadowlands.
In his first crop, he greeted 189 well-bred beauties and
from this group sired 82 pacers with marks of 1:55 or
faster. Collectively, his first crop earned more than $20.9
million. The big star was Rock N Roll Heaven who, like his
sire, put together a Horse of the Year campaign in 2010.
That crop also included Put On A Show p,5,1:47.3, a
winner of more than $ 2.4 million. Two other millionaire

"To be blunt, I need the industry to step up and support
the Meadowlands which may not be the best business
decision for everyone in the short term but, in my opinion, the
industry needs a healthy Meadowlands and we deserve the
support of the industry," he wrote.
Gural tries to make the argument that a healthy
Meadowlands makes for a healthy harness racing industry
and a healthy harness racing industry is good for everyone.
The sport needs the Meadowlands to thrive and had it gone
away the entire industry would have taken a major hit.
Gural says he's done a lot for the sport and he deserves
the support of its participants in return. He's not wrong. But
neither is he right. Loyalty, support and gratitude are
wonderful concepts but when they face off with the mighty
dollar they're going to lose out every time. That's just the way
people are and an open letter from Jeff Gural is never going
to change that.
Take Brian Sears. He abandoned the Meadowlands this
year to go drive at Yonkers. There was only one reason for
him to do so-money. He is killing them on the other side of
the Hudson River. He entered last night's racing with 110
wins and $1,376,465 in earnings on the year, second in the
country behind Corey Callahan, who has had 372 more
drives. Driving part time at Yonkers and part time at the
Meadowlands in 2012 his earnings were $1,191,873 at the
same point in year. And with his star dimming at the
Meadowlands it's unlikely he would have been able to make
even that much money this year had he stayed in New
That Brian Sears left the Meadowlands doesn't make
Sears a bad guy. It makes him like most everyone else. He
knew he'd make more money at Yonkers and making money
is a lot more important to the vast majority of people than
giving support to someone who stepped up and saved the
Meadowlands and has done a lot of good for harness racing.
It would be nice if people weren't that way. But they are.
Take Tim Tetrick. I seriously doubt that loyalty to Gural had
anything to do with his decision to stay at the Meadowlands.
Tetrick has discovered a formula that works for him. Winning
at the Meadowlands, which remains the most prominent
track in the sport, keeps him in the headlines and on the
radar screens of trainers who win on the Grand Circuit. He'll
sacrifice some purse dollars from January through April
knowing that it will pay off later when the Meadowlands has
its rich stakes races and he's driving the first or second
choice in just about every one of them.
When Gural asks people to support the Meadowlands
they're going to ask in return "what's in it for me?" and his
answer is going to have to be something more motivating
than "it's the right thing to do for the sport."
The Meadowlands can't compete against the slots-fattened
purses at Yonkers and Chester, so Gural is going to have to
find other ways to convince people to race at the
He's already prepared to take one step. Because
Chester and Pocono don't run in the winter, it can actually
be hard to get into a race at the Meadowlands. He is set to
put in a points system that rewards trainers who race at
the Meadowlands throughout the year so that they get
preferential treatment when it comes to getting into races
in January and February.
That may help, but maybe he ought to take a longer look
down the road. The Meadowlands is likely to get its own
slots operation within the near future and if that happens
the purses at the track are going to be sensational, likely
much bigger than those at Yonkers, Chester, Pocono,
Is there a way to reward the drivers and trainers who
support the Meadowlands during these tough times and
shut out those who don't once the Meadowlands Open
starts going for $95,000? Should he tell Sears and fellow
Meadowlands expatriate George Brennan he's not going to
let them drive at the Meadowlands once it has slots unless
they come home now?
Those may seem like drastic measures, but the only way
to get people to support the Meadowlands is to convince
them that it's in their best interests financially. Remember,
Jeff, it’s always about the money.
Meadowlands Program To Include More Info On
Layoff Horses
By Lucas Marquardt
Blended Whiskey, a starter in Saturday's eighth race at
the Meadowlands, hasn't raced since Feb. 23, but
horseplayers won't have to play a guessing game when it
comes to where he's been.
The Meadowlands
Racetrack program will now
include enhanced information
on horses who have not raced
in the last 21 to 45 days.
Specifically, their trainers
must inform the Meadowlands racing office why the horses
have not raced lately. Much like an NFL "Team Report"
that indicates why a player missed practice or a game, this
report will provide bettors with a little more information that
they would not normally find in the past performances.
For simulcast bettors, the layoff report will be posted as
a TV Graphic on the Meadowlands nightly broadcast.
Additionally, the layoff report will be posted on The
Meadowlands Twitter Account and Facebook page.
In the case of Blended Whiskey, trainer Frank
Scamporino Jr. offered the following explanation for the
gelding's 24-day absence: "Trainer reports horse was
claimed from Dover to bring to the mile track. Had to wait

out the 60 day post claim rule. Swimming recently for
The only other horse this weekend who falls into the 21-45
days off category is Autumn Treasure, a starter in Friday's
tenth race. In her case, the report is as follows; “Autumn
Treasure - last started 2/23 trainer Calabrese said she's a
recent private purchase. Trained fast in Canada last
Wednesday arrived in NJ on Friday. Trained lightly today in
NJ. Seems fine."
Meadowlands Director of Racing Operations Darin Zoccali
said the idea was hatched after track management heard
from a few bettors who complained after some layoff horses
turned in big races after showing poor form in their most
recent starts.
"This season the Meadowlands has been trying to give
bettors as much information as possible and this is another
effort to do so," Zoccali said. "It's important for bettors to
know why a horse had not raced recently and we're hopeful
that the trainers will help us by offering honest information.
We heard some complaints from bettors about layoff horses
and this seemed like a way to remedy the situation."
a free workshop on how to get media attention for
horse-related businesses.
The workshop will be held from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on
Saturday (March 23) at the Museum, at 240 Main Street,
Goshen, New York.
The workshop will cover topics such as how to develop
pertinent media contacts, how to write, prepare and
distribute press materials, how to identify and pitch feature
stories, use of photos and video, as well as crisis
communications. The content will be applicable for farms,
fair associations, tracks, training centers, racing stables
and equine nonprofits.
There is no cost for the workshop, but advance
registration is required. The workshop will be conducted by
Ellen Harvey, executive director of the USTA’s Harness
Racing Communications division and a Museum trustee.
To sign up, call 732.780.3700 or e-mail

Weather permitting, there will be a free walking tour of
adjacent Goshen Historic Track, starting at 10:30 a.m. that
morning and open to all workshop participants and guests.
Meadowlands Handle Down in First Tilt Against
Though the results were far from disastrous, the
Meadowlands handle definitely felt the impact of the opening
of racing at Chester last week.
The Friday and Saturday cards handled a combined
$6,283,946. The Friday and Saturday cards from a week
earlier, when Chester was not racing, handled $6,858,783.
The key difference was that the Meadowlands carded 13
races on Friday, March 1 but went with only an 11-race card
on Friday, March 8.
With fewer horses available because Chester is another
option for trainers, last Saturday's 13-race card at the
Meadowlands had 108 starters. A week earlier the number
was 121.
The good news for the Meadowlands was that 2013 handle
continued to outpace 2012 handle. The handle for last
weekend was up 21.5 percent over the comparable two-day
period in 2012.
Coleman Fined and Suspended
Trainer Casie Coleman has been hit with a two-month
suspension and a $16,000 fine after three of her horses
failed post-race tests last month at Woodbine. The three
tested positive for the corticosteroid Flumethasone.
Coleman’s suspension runs from March 5 through May
A year earlier, Coleman was handed a $5,000 fine and
suspended 45 days for a positive for the drug Ephedrine.
March 15 Payments Due for Tioga, Vernon
Tioga & Vernon Downs 2013 marquee stakes require a
March 15 nomination payment.
These include the Artiscape, Credit Winner, Muscle Hill and
Roll With Joe (formerly Bettor's Delight) for older horses, the
Empire Breeders Classic for 3 year olds and the
