Last Friday night at ADDINGTON (NZ) proved to be a really significant for Benstud bred horses.
Over the last few years Australasia’s premier trainer Mark Purdon has purchased several of our yearlings at the APG sales. We have enjoyed great success but, Friday was a real highlight!
In the 1st race of the night star ROCKNROLL HEAVEN gelding HEAVEN ROCKS had an effortless win taking his record to 9 wins & 2 second's from 15 starts $222,026. Heaven Rocks has won two Group 1 races, the highlight being his 3yr old Jewels win. Hopefully he can add this year’s Jewels to the tally.

Later in the night STAR’S ALIGN (Nosotros / Art Major) a $40K yearling purchase extended his record to, 6 wins , 2 seconds & $65,675. He too is heading to the Jewels and everyone at Benstud will be barracking for the ALL STAR team and the boys.
