Albany, CA (February 5, 2021) – Rousing Slammer, the Rousing Sermon gelding who is the year younger full brother to current six-time winner Slam Dunk Sermon, is starting to build his own resume and he scored his first victory against winners in the 2nd race at Golden Gate Fields going five and one-half furlongs over the all weather.
First out of the gate from the outside post, he was joined on the pace and the duel was on. The two fought until midstretch, when Rousing Slammer gained the lead for good. He moved out in the final strides to win by three-quarters of length.
Rousing Slammer and his full brother are the product of the Mr. & Mrs. Larry Williams’ breeding and racing program. Both his sire and his grandsire Lucky Pulpit were homebreds, as is his dam, the winning Grand Slam mare, Royal Grand Slam. The brothers are trained by Steven Specht.
