K D Rocket , who misfired on debut, made amends on his second start in the $975,000 Lasoy maiden special weight event for native-bred and imported two-year-olds over five furlongs (1,000 metres) at Caymanas Park on Sunday.

His first run was on September 14 going over four furlongs (800m) straight and K D Rocket ( Nuclear Wayne – Destiny's Choice) failed to leave the starting gates cleanly, but recovered somewhat to finish in second position by 2 lengths behind Cash Is King in a time of 47.4 seconds.

However, on this occasion, K D Rocket was keen on leaving the starting gates and the result was an easy 5 -length win in a time of 1:00.2 minutes. K D Rocket, who was ridden by Aaron Chatrie, defeated Eagle One (Phillip Parchment), Bold Sami (Christopher Mamdeen) and My Time Now (Javaniel Patterson) in that order.

“He is coming along nicely. He is working really well with commendable responses in his gallops. He seems that he is a horse that will not get any great distances based on how he is training, but that remains to be seen as we are going to stretch him out as time goes on.

“Other than that, he responds positively to whatever is asked of him; he was breaking a little slow in the beginning and he broke really slow in his first race. Had he not broken slow I thought he should have won, but broke really slow on that day. We then did a little work with him and he came back nice for this race. This was a good run. He is a nice horse and will get better as he goes along,” Subratie said.
