Purple Rock came to us as a winning two year old from Charles Hills. He has come into his own by being upped in trip to tackle middle distances. He won his first race for his new connections at Doncaster in August 2016 when Danielle Mooney romped home on Town Moor in a mile and a quarter handicap. Rocky was a winner again at Newcastle in November 2016 on the Tapeta track for Nathan Evan.
Purple Rock has schooled nicely over hurdles and the next stage of his career will begin soon under National Hunt rules.
Name: Derived from name of sire (Fastnet Rock) and dam (Amethyst) which is a shade of purple.
