AS THE ONLY G1 SON OF FASTNET ROCK AT STUD ABLE TO BOAST A DUAL G1 WINNING DAM, AND AS A $1 MILLION SALE TOPPER HIMSELF, IT WAS ALWAYS ANTICIPATED THAT ROCK ‘N’ POP WOULD PRODUCE GREAT TYPES.

Blessed with natural muscle, good bone and superb attitudes, ROCK ‘N’ POP’s first crop yearlings were in high demand at the 2017 NZB Premier Yearling Sale, selling for up to $160,000.

Demonstrating his outstanding value, the blueblood sire’s yearlings averaged $36,500 at Karaka – a figure more than 4x his current service fee.

At just a fraction of the cost of FASTNET ROCK’s fee, ROCK ‘N’ POP represents a golden opportunity to breed to his best bred G1 son at stud.

Of the 5 G1 winning FASTNET ROCK sires at stud in Australasia, only ROCK ‘N’ POP boasts a G1 winning dam - what’s more, a dual G1 winning dam by the breed shaping sire SIR TRISTRAM.

His dam POPSY was awarded the NZ Filly of the Year and achieved black-type glory in the G1 New Zealand Derby, the G1 ARC Championship Stakes, the G2 Queen Elizabeth Hcp, the G2 Counties Cup & the Listed Counties Metric Mile.

His damsire SIR TRISTRAM has recorded 34 G1 winners, with daughters so far providing 6 G1 producing sire sons.

FASTNET ROCK’s sire sons are now becoming prominent forces in the industry. His 5 stakes producing sire sons already include 2 G1 producing stallions.

With looks to match his pedigree, ROCK ‘N’ POP claimed the $1million Sale Topper title at the 2010 NZB Premier Yearling Sale before going on to demonstrate his class with G1 success.

One of the best of his generation, ROCK ‘N’ POP debuted for success at three before registering an explosive G1 New Zealand 2000 Guineas win. In a feat that more than met Waikato Stud’s ‘must have’ stallion criteria of an electric turn of foot, ROCK ‘N’ POP, powered home over the final 600m in 33.24 seconds.
ROCK ‘N’ POP achieved a second black-type win in the Restricted Listed Karaka 3YO Mile.

A gritty third followed to SHEZ SINSATIONAL against WFA company in the G1 Waikato International Stakes, before a bold second placing to SILENT ACHIEVER on an unsuitable track in the G1 New Zealand Derby.

With extremely favourable feedback from breakers, results look to be imminent for ROCK ‘N’ POP's oldest progeny, who are 2YOs in 2016-17.

Rock n Pop stands for $9000 +GST, LFG in 2017
