Zero Rock is one of the main acts at Eagle Farm tomorrow as the Brisbane summer series of racing starts to heat up.

While far from the size of the Brisbane winter carnival the next few weeks provide a real boost to the Brisbane Racing Club and are well supported by locals across the holiday season.

The races seem to get stronger every year as well and tomorrow Zero Rock could continue that trend in the Listed Travel Associates Classic.

The Kelso Wood trained runner was due to feature during the Melbourne spring carnival but a joint infection shelved those plans.

Wood says this path was very much plan B but the horse can’t be faltered coming into it.

“She’s fine and is ready to go and has been in work for a few months,” Wood said.

“The setback put her behind a couple of weeks and forced her to miss going to Melbourne but she’s fully recovered.

“I’ve done all I can to get her fit for this and she’s forward enough to win.”

Zero Rock actually came through this campaign last year, a period where she enjoyed considerable success and signalled herself as a genuine black type performer.

She won this event second up in 2010 after also winning her first up run, she then went on to claim the Lough Neagh as well.

This time around the Gold Coast Magic Millions will be her main aim in the first part of next year after once again passing through the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes on December 24.

During last year’s Magic Millions Zero Rock ran fifth in the Goldmarket Handicap behind Captain Sonador and second in the Magic Millions Cup behind Bold Glance.

With a delayed start to her preparation this time around it could actually help her by the time she gets there as she won’t have as many miles under her belt.

The last time Zero Rock raced was in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara at the end of June where she ran fifth to Yosei.

The highlight of her Winter preparation though was almost certainly when she ran third in the feature event Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap behind Sincero.

So impressed was her trainer with that run that she’ll be back there in 2012 with ambitions of going even better.

“After she has these few summer runs I’ll put her away and prepare her for the winter again,” Wood said.

It’s a good show of faith in the mare who at six years old could easily be put away as a valuable broodmare.

Connections though are seeking that elusive top level victory which would send her price tag soaring even higher and put her among the best in Queensland.
