INSTANT ROCKSTAR produced his best performance this year to win a mixed grades 4-5 over 599 metres at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last night.
The Russell Watts-trained dog powered home to win by over 11 lengths and stopped the clock at 34.53 which was well inside the previous best of 34.60 shared by Paragaon Star (05/09/09) and Lucky Louey (25/06/08).
Instant Rockstar was having only his sixth start on the Hobart track with this his third win.
His career statistics read much better at 10 wins and five minor placings from 23 outings in Tasmania.
The dog, that is rising three, is owned by Troy Wolley from Victoria where the dog began his racing career.
Instant Rockstar is shaping as a middle distance specialist, although he won four in succession in June-July of which three were over the shorter sprint journeys.
