Acclamation Son Rocks and Salt Wins Golden Gate Allowance
Albany, CA (March 20, 2022) – Rocks and Salt, the 5-year-old son of Acclamation, made it two wins from three starts in 2022 with his allowance win going one mile over the all weather at Golden Gate Fields.
Frontrunning speed is not Rocks and Salt’s game and he settled near the back of the field for the opening half mile. He still had a half-dozen lengths to the front a quarter-mile from home, but he responded when jockey Pedro Terrero asked. Coming four wide with a rush, he was even with the leader at the top of stretch and their battle lasted until the final few yards. He got the best of his competitor and drew away to win by three-quarters of a length.
A homebred racing for Jane Bacharach, Rocks and Salt is trained by Aggie Ordonez. He is out of the winning El Prado (IRE) mare, Bruheria.
