Rock Your World captured his six-panel debut in Arcadia Jan. 1 and was favored at even-money to repeat in the one-mile Pasadena S. Saturday. The $650,000 KEESEP buy kept close tabs on the leader Commander Khai (Twirling Candy) from second through a half in :46.72. Shaken up approaching the bend, Rock Your World was confronted by Cathkin Peak (Ire) (Alhebayeb {Ire}) and a brief duel ensued, but the chalk still hadn't hit his best stride. Rock Your World turned on the afterburners in the final sixteenth, powering clear to win as he pleased.
The winner's dam, Charm the Maker, is also responsible for Grade III placed She's Our Charm (Candy Ride {Arg}) in addition an unraced juvenile colt by that sire named He's Our Maker. After foaling a Curlin filly in 2020, the sister to Grade II winner Liam The Charmer (Smart Strike) was bred back to Candy Ride. Click for the chart or VIDEO, sponsored by Fasig-Tipton.
