Pet Rock sired his first Group One winner when Rockin Marty when he took out the 3yo Breeders Challenge in a blistering 1.50.4 . In doing so he beat outstanding 3yos Lochinvar Art and Max Delight.
Rockin Marty was out of a Jaguar Cam mare so mares with Cam Fella in their pedigree would be suitable , these include Fake Left , Bettors Delight , Million Dollar Cam , Presidential Ball amongst others
Being a son of Rocknroll Hanover , Pet Rock should cross very well with Artsplace line mares . Direcrt Scooter line mares have also crossed with therefore mares by Courage Under Fire , Mach Three , Christian Cullen should also be strongly considered
In America, Pet Rock has produced many outstanding performers , Rockathon was by a daughter of The Panderosa , as he is proven with No Nukes line mares , breeders with mares by other No Nukes line stallions such as Live of Die , Western Hanover , Badlands Hanover and American Ideal should also look at Pet Rock, Rock Candy was a world champion 2yo was our of a Sportsmaster mare. Sportsmaster was by Abercrombie, therefore other Abercrombie and Artsplace line mares should also loom at Pet Rock . These mares include daughters of Art Major , Perfect Art , Sportswriter , Modern Art and many more
Pet Rock has been an outstanding stallion in both Australia and North America
His oldest progeny are 6 years old in Australia .
Pet Rock has left multiple Group 1 winners in Australia including
