Rock N Roll World 1:48.6 ($712,737), was viewed by many as one  of the best bred and best performed sires to be imported to Australia in recent years.

He stood at Cobbitty equine until a colic attack  ended his short breeding career in 2022, Belinda McCarthy had this to say at the time “It is a great loss for our breeding industry.

“World” will be dearly missed at Cobbitty Equine Farm.

Rock N Roll World served 109 mares in Western Australia in his first season before being shipped to Victoria in 2021 where he covered 100 mares and 108 in  his last season with Cobbitty.

Rocknroll Hanover, the sire of Rock N Roll World, was a champion sire and broodmare sire with worldwide progeny earnings of almost $140 million and 85 in the 1:50 list. A champion pacer himself, with a record of 1:48.6, Rocknroll Hanover was the world’s champion two-year-old pacer at which age he took a record of 1:49.8, he was Horse of the Year at three and he ran up a record tally of $2,745,038 to the end of his two and three-year-old racing.

Rocknroll Hanover has matched his greatness as a racehorse in the siring field, and now his sons are achieving distinctions of the same order.

Not only was Rock N Roll World a young son of Rocknroll Hanover – he was foaled in 2012 – but on his distaff side he can claim equal distinctions. He ranks as a brother to a 1:50 sire in World Of Rocknroll 1:50.6 ($338,561) and a half-brother to Captain Deo (1:50.4) and to the dams of Odds On Lauderdale (1:49.2) and Sir Richard Z Tam (1:50.2).

Their dam, Worldly Beauty (by Artplace), won 21 races and $1.9 million in stakes and took a record of 1:49.6 and was adjudged the top American 2YO Filly and 3YO Filly of her time.

Worldly Beauty was a sister to Worldly Treasure (1:53.2), the dam of a champion colt pacer in Captaintreacherous 1:47.2 ($3.1 million), the USA and Canadian 2YO and 3YO of the Year and Hall of Fame member. Standing at Hanover Shoe Farms for a fee of $30,000, Captaintreacherous has been the leading sire of two and three-year-olds in North America for the last two years and was third on the all-aged list, while in Australia, he totally dominated in 2022.

Last night in the west, some of his first crop were on display and they certainly didn’t disappoint. Maximum Rock went out a $1.70 and won like a horse to follow going forward.
