Brittany sires red hot in Levy Series

Rockin Ron

The Brittany sires have been red hot in the Levy Memorial FFA pacing series at Yonkers. Just last Saturday American Ideal’s Missile J notched his second win in the event, while Real Desire’s Rockin Ron paced the fastest mile at Yonkers this year to score in his division.

Missile J p,4,1:49.1f ($397,102), purchased for $115,000 by his new owners John McGill and Brian Carsey at last January’s Meadowlands Mixed Sale, has paid handsome dividends.

He’s taken six wins in seven starts this year, with impressive, back-to-back scores in the first two $50,000 legs of the Levy. His latest win last Saturday was in come-from-behind fashion, as he paced in 1:51.3 with a :27.4 last quarter over the half-mile oval.

Burke Racing, Weaver Bruscemi and RTC Stables’ Rockin Ron p,4,1:50.1h ($578,928) also looks primed for a breakout season in the free for all ranks after his season’s record, wire-to-wire victory in 1:51.1.

Last year’s Confederation Cup and Prix d’Ete winner has now earned more than a half-million dollars, with that bankroll likely to grow exponentially by year’s end.

Both American Ideal and Real Desire are pacing sires with etched-in-stone credentials. Both can get the owners of their progeny open stakes and sire stakes standouts, with the continuing speed and soundness to often compete at the very top levels as older horses.

American Ideal, whose book is very nearly closed, stands for $10,000 at Blue Chip Farms in New York, while Real Desire stands at Ivy Lane Farm in Indiana for a $3,500 fee.
