Three new Adena Springs stallions have joined TrueNicks. The new recruits include graded winner and Canadian classic winner Harlem Rocker, Hollywood Gold Cup (gr. I) winner Mast Track, and group winner Plan.
Harlem Rocker (TrueNicks,SRO) is a son of Adena's champion two-year-old colt Macho Uno. His dam is the stakes-placed Lit de Justice mare Freedom Come, herself a half sister to Affirmed Handicap (gr. III) winner Boomzeeboom. A debut winner at Gulfstream Park going seven furlongs and an allowance winner a one mile, Harlem Rocker took his record to three-for-three when capturing the Withers (gr. III) at Aqueduct. The Ontario-bred colt then ventured home to take the Prince Of Wales Stakes, the middle jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. Harlem Rocker was a good fourth to Colonel John in the Travers Stakes (gr. I) before finishing first in the Cigar Mile (gr. I), only to be placed second due to interference. Harlem Rocker will stand for a fee of $3,500, stands and nurses, at Adena Springs at McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds.
