Bonny mare Zero Rock kept up an imposing strike rate and edged closer to a $1m in prizemoney when taking the Listed Travel Associates Classic (1200m) at Eagle Farm for the second year in a row.

Zero Rock ($1.55 fav) lumped 57.5 kilograms fought off all challengers  to record her 11th win in 26 starts.

Her record reflects trainer Kelso Wood’s excellent programming of the six-year-old with patience taking precedence over greed.

Zero Rock has won races continously since her first race start in June 2008.

With today’s $54,000 first prizemoney, she has now earned $894,050.

Though she has placed in the Group 1 Stradbroke Hcp and Magic Millions Cup, she has not won higher than a Listed race of which today’s race was her third at that level.

Jockey Chris Munce held Zero Rock together at the head of the field with Norocos slightly heading her before the turn.

At the top of the straight four horses,  Zero Rock, Norocos, Nuptse and Cariad all shared the lead.

Caraid ran off the track and Munce had to work the daughter of Danzero to get a break which eventuated at the 200m mark.

Liesele, who settled behind the Zero Rock on the fence, came late after being blocked for a run until the 250m mark.

Zero Rock held on from Liesele with Mossriver, who had a to change course in straight, gaining third.

Dual Chamber finished fourth after flashing home from last.

“I was worried when the bastards went to her,” Wood said.

“But I knew she wouldn’t let me down.

“It was a good effort from a six-year-old mare first-up.

“I know she has a lot of class but she still had a big weight and it was a great effort.”

Wood is planning to run Zero Rock in the Lough Neagh Stakes, a race she also won last year, prior to the Magic Millions Cup (1400m) at the Gold Coast on January 14.

The win gave Munce a winning treble.

He won earlier on Heart To Fear in the Country Cup (1200m) and Kar Ma Te in the Tattersall’s Arcade Handicap (1800m).

“It was a tradesmanlike win,” Munce said of Zero Rock.

“She was under a bit of pressure on the home turn but I wasn’t really worried.

“I was mindful of the weight she was carrying and she had to carry it.”

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
    Any tips?

  2. website designing

    You need to take part in a contest for one of the highest quality sites on the web.
    I most certainly will highly recommend this blog!

  3. reverse phone lookup

    Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of hard
    work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  4. Luiz Fernando Monteiro Bittencourt

    I wanted to thank you for this very good read!! I absolutely
    enjoyed every little bit of it. I have you book marked to look at new things you post…

    Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest
    authoring on other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the
    same topics you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my readers
    would enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or
    something. I think that you just can do with a few % to force the message home a bit, however
    instead of that, that is fantastic blog. A fantastic read.
    I will definitely be back.

  8. surveillance system

    This excellent website truly has all of the information and facts I wanted about this subject and
    didn’t know who to ask.

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog in the near future
    but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and
    interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are
    speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my search for something concerning
    this.

  11. purchasing timex watches

    I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if
    all website owners and bloggers made good content as you
    did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.

    Hi, its fastidious article about media print, we all understand media is a impressive source
    of information.

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d
    like to send you an email. I’ve got some creative ideas
    for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way,
    great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  16. bigger website designing

    My brother suggested I may like this website. He was once entirely right.

    This publish actually made my day. You can not consider just
    how much time I had spent for this info! Thank you!

  17. Lelio Junior

    provide credit and sources back to your webpage?

    My website is in the exact same area of interest as yours and my visitors would really benefit from a lot of the information you
    present here. Please let me know if this ok with you.
    Thank you!

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
    was hoping maybe you would have some experience
    with something like this. Please let me know
    if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your
    blog and I look forward to your new updates.
