Seasoned Victorian-bred seven-year-old Will I Rocknroll had luck on his side in the $20,375 Bobs In Town Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Will I Rocknroll, the $2 favourite from the No. 2 barrier, contacted the arm of the mobile barrier in the score-up and broke into a gallop, causing interference to Fifty Five Reborn. This caused a false start.

Then, in the second attempt to get the field of eleven on its way, the polemarker Machs Gold ($10) galloped badly moments after the start, thus enabling Gary Hall Jnr to send Will I Rocknroll straight to the front.

Will I Rocknroll, trained by Gary Hall Snr, performs at his best when he is able to set the pace, and he gave his supporters very little cause for concern as he bowled along in front, with the $4.80 second favourite Caveman in the breeze.

Will I Rocknroll dashed over the final quarters in 28.9sec. and 28.8sec. and won effortlessly from $8 chance Middlepage, who trailed the leader throughout. Caveman wilted to fourth.

After eleven wins in Victoria Will I Rocknroll has had 31 starts in WA for four wins and four placings to take his career record to 65 starts for 15 wins, ten placings and stakes of $138,882.

Will I Rocknroll’s half-brother Kashed Up (by For A Reason) was a smart winner at Brisbane’s Albion Park on Saturday night when he was driven by Luke McCarthy and led from barrier two and beat Theresachance by a length at a 1.54.4 rate in a $20,770 Free-For-All over 1660m. The four-year-old Kashed Up has earned $195,367 from ten wins and 17 placings from 37 starts.

Kashed Up and Will I Rocknroll are out of the Mach Three mare Laughinglilly, who won at five of her 28 starts — two in New Zealand and three in New South Wales.
