GROUP 1 MILESTONE FOR MIKE MORONEY

The victory of On The Rocks in Saturday’s Group I Herbie Dyke Stakes at Te Rapa held a special significance for Mike Moroney.

It is the 50th win at the highest level for Moroney, who trains in partnership with Pam Gerard in New Zealand.

Moroney was at Caulfield on Saturday watching Hawker Hurricane finish third in the Group III Blue Diamond Prelude for colts and geldings but took time out to reflect on the achievement.

“It’s great for me but mainly the stable as I train in partnership with Pam Gerard in New Zealand and it’s her first Group One so it’s terrific,” Moroney said.

“We’ve gone close in a couple before but today it was our turn so it’s great.

“Now we’ve got the first 50 we just need to start on the next 50!

A four-year-old son of Alamosa, On The Rocks was ridden by Jake Bayliss and finished strongly to overwhelm Tiptronic at the end of the 2000m

“He wasn’t an expensive yearling - my brother Paul selected him and he’s the 36th Group One winner Paul has bought as a yearling,” Moroney said.

“He’s a handy horse and has earned over $NZ400,000 so he’s been terrific for his owners and fortunately the stable is one of them!
