He was the richest two year old of the year and also equalled the World Record at that age.

As a three year old he not only won the Meadowlands Pace but also the $500,000 Battle of Brandywine – in identical times of 1:48.2.

As a four-year-old he was a monster, setting world records on both five eighths (1:47.8) and half mile tracks (1:49.2). He became the first horse to win in sub 1:48 in three consecutive starts.

A Rocknroll Dance is beautifully bred being by Rocknroll Hanover out of a Cam’s Card Shark half sister to the champion sire Western Hanover.

He possesses the No Nukes and Cam Fella sirelines through Rocknroll Hanover and Cam’s Card Shark, and also a duplication of the mare Wendymae Hanover – which opens up a lot of possibilities for him as a sire

One of the best crosses for Rocknroll Hanover was Artsplace and Artsplace line stallions and we see no reason why this should not also be the case for A Rocknroll Dance as well.

In Australia and New Zealand such Artsplace line stallions include Art Major, Grinfromeartoear, Sportswriter, Artiscape, Modern Art, Dream Away, Perfect Art, Astreos, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, etc.

A mating with a Modern Art mare is very interesting as Wendymae Hanover is not only A Rocknroll Dance’s second dam but also Modern Art’s.

In fact A Rocknroll Dance should suit most Abercrombie line mares. This includes mares by Real Desire, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Pacific Rocket, Panorama, etc.

Direct Scooter line mares also look to be a very good option for A Rocknroll Dance. Horses such as Shes A Runa (Jeremes Jet / Christian Cullen) and Besotted (American Ideal / In The Pocket) are Southern Hemisphere examples of the Western Hanover / Direct Scooter cross.

What’s more, A Rocknroll Dance presents Direct Scooter in his pedigree via Rich N Elegant (the dam of Rocknroll Hanover) so when crossed with a mare by a Direct Scooter line stallion the resulting foal will carry an attractive reverse sex cross to Direct Scooter.

Examples of Direct Scooter line stallions include In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Mach Three, Tinted Cloud, Julius Caesar etc.

Another great cross for Rocknroll Hanover has been Cam Fella line mares. Examples include A Rocknroll Dance himself, I Luv The Nitelife, Simply Business, Tobago Clays, Valentino, etc.

Now any mating of a Cam Fella line mare with A Rocknroll Dance will reinforce this cross as well as possibly resulting in a reverse sex cross to Cam Fella or Cam’s Card Shark. Reverse sex crosses have worked really for many stallions.

Potential Cam Fella line stallions include Bettor’s Delight, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Precious Bunny, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.

Of note for owners of a smaller Bettors Delight’s mare, A Rocknroll Dance is a potentially a good physical match up as he is a big, strong stallion.
Tango Tara became the 17th stakes winner for A Rocknroll Dance when he scored a tough win in the Group 3 TAB Melton Pace Final on Saturday night.
Rock On Top became the latest Group 1 winner for A Rocknroll Dance when he took out the Group 1 Westbred Classic last night at Gloucester Park.
The Choreographer became A Rocknroll Dance’s fifth Group 1 winner when taking out the $100,000 TAB Regional Championship - Hunter Final at Newcastle.

A Rocknroll Dance is beautifully bred being by Rocknroll Hanover out of a Cam’s Card Shark half sister to the champion sire Western Hanover.

He possesses the No Nukes and Cam Fella sirelines through Rocknroll Hanover and Cam’s Card Shark, and also a duplication of the mare Wendymae Hanover – which opens up a lot of possibilities for him as a sire

One of the best crosses for Rocknroll Hanover was Artsplace and Artsplace line stallions and we see no reason why this should not also be the case for A Rocknroll Dance as well.

In Australia and New Zealand such Artsplace line stallions include Art Major, Grinfromeartoear, Sportswriter, Artiscape, Modern Art, Dream Away, Perfect Art, Astreos, Fully Loaded, Peace Of Art, etc.

A mating with a Modern Art mare is very interesting as Wendymae Hanover is not only A Rocknroll Dance’s second dam but also Modern Art’s.

In fact A Rocknroll Dance should suit most Abercrombie line mares. This includes mares by Real Desire, Albert Albert, Life Sign, Pacific Rocket, Panorama, etc.

Direct Scooter line mares also look to be a very good option for A Rocknroll Dance. Horses such as Shes A Runa (Jeremes Jet / Christian Cullen) and Besotted (American Ideal / In The Pocket) are Southern Hemisphere examples of the Western Hanover / Direct Scooter cross.

What’s more, A Rocknroll Dance presents Direct Scooter in his pedigree via Rich N Elegant (the dam of Rocknroll Hanover) so when crossed with a mare by a Direct Scooter line stallion the resulting foal will carry an attractive reverse sex cross to Direct Scooter.

Examples of Direct Scooter line stallions include In The Pocket, Christian Cullen, Courage Under Fire, Mach Three, Tinted Cloud, Julius Caesar etc.

Another great cross for Rocknroll Hanover has been Cam Fella line mares. Examples include A Rocknroll Dance himself, I Luv The Nitelife, Simply Business, Tobago Clays, Valentino, etc.

Now any mating of a Cam Fella line mare with A Rocknroll Dance will reinforce this cross as well as possibly resulting in a reverse sex cross to Cam Fella or Cam’s Card Shark. Reverse sex crosses have worked really for many stallions.

Potential Cam Fella line stallions include Bettor’s Delight, Fake Left, Armbro Operative, Presidential Ball, Precious Bunny, Pacific Fella, Camtastic, Cameleon, Brioso Hanover, Exotic Earl, etc.

Of note for owners of a smaller Bettors Delight’s mare, A Rocknroll Dance is a potentially a good physical match up as he is a big, strong stallion.
Tango Tara became the 17th stakes winner for A Rocknroll Dance when he scored a tough win in the Group 3 TAB Melton Pace Final on Saturday night.
Rock On Top became the latest Group 1 winner for A Rocknroll Dance when he took out the Group 1 Westbred Classic last night at Gloucester Park.
The Choreographer became A Rocknroll Dance’s fifth Group 1 winner when taking out the $100,000 TAB Regional Championship - Hunter Final at Newcastle.
