Rocket’s winning pictures

Newcastle’s Halloween race night proved a very popular hit with racegoers and our owners alike on Friday as Emerald Rocket followed up his recent course success in great style.

There were some great outfits and fancy dress efforts on show at Gosforth Park with Colleen, one of Emerald Rocket’s owners, getting right into the spirit of things in her cheeky witch costume.

Whatever spells Colleen had cast certainly worked as Emerald Rocket came home clear once again for another taking success, taking the step up in class in his stride.

The progressive son of Society Rock hit the line in great style on Friday ahead of some great scenes in the winners enclosure.

In just under a week Emerald Rocket is due to come under the hammer at the Tattersalls Horses In Training Sales, where he seems certain to make considerably more than he was purchased for.

The colt has certainly proved a shrewd acquisition and gave everyone a really enjoyable nights racing at Newcastle.
