A EUROPEAN champion over 10 furlongs twice, Fascinating Rock was an extremely tough and consistent racehorse who won eight of his 15 career starts, spread over four seasons.

He also has a good outcross pedigree, as he is the best son of Australian champion Fastnet Rock bred in Europe, and his dam is a winning daughter of Polar Falcon out of a winning half-sister to international champion Gothenberg. He looks good value at only €5,000 in his fifth season at Ballylinch.
