Bred and retained to race by Mill Park and Mills Thoroughbred Breeding Partnership, lightly raced four year-old Stratum gelding Rock Status resumed from a spell to score an impressive victory at Morphettville on Saturday.
Trained by David Jolly, Rock Status powered home from back in the field to win by more than two lengths over 1050 metres and looks set for a good campaign.
With two wins from three starts, Rock Status is a half-brother to stakes-winners Reldas and Victory Chant.
He is the third winner for Classic Status, a winning Marscay half-sister to Group I winner Serious Speed and to the dam of Group II winner Majestic Music.
Classic Status has a yearling colt (pictured below) by Helmet that was sold by Mill Park at the Magic Millions Yearling Sale earlier this year for $170,000 to Phillip Stokes.
