Rockin RonBrittany Stallion Management’s Indiana sire Real Desire made the most of the Memorial Day holiday weekend by siring stakes winners on both sides of the U.S.-Canadian border.

In the newly-minted $150,000 Camluck Classic (formerly the Molson Pace) at Western Fair Raceway in London, ON, Real Desire’s millionaire son Rockin Ron p,1:47.2 ($1,208,857) bested a field of FFA standouts when he won in track record time of 1:50.1 over the half-mile oval.

It was the fifth win of the season and 33rd lifetime for the Ron Burke standout who is owned by Burke Racing Stable, Weaver Bruscemi, RTC Stables and J & T Silva Stables.

Rockin Ron was bred by Ronald Phillips, John Carver and Louis Leinberger.

At Hoosier Park, Real Desire’s 3-year-old son Real Peace p,2,1:53.1 ($44,036) won his $20,000 elimination of the Indiana Sire Stakes and earned the right to head into next week’s $75,000 preliminary final against the likes of Rockinbeach, Schnitzledosomethin and Always A Prince.

Real Peace, a five-time winner last year at 2, is a homebred owned by his breeder, Ed Teefey, with partners Louis Leinberger (co-breeder of Rockin Ron) and Mike Brink. He is trained by Mike Brink.

Best wishes to the connections of both of these horses as they continue to move onward in their 2018 campaigns.
