Elect to Rock smashed the opposition to win the coveted Rocky Baker Memorial Pacing Cup at the Memorial Oval Paceway last night.

A great crowd turned out for the Harness Racing Club’s Carnival of Cups night and witnessed an exhilarating performance by Elect to Rock in the main event.

Ashleigh Camilleri was sensational in the driver’s seat, steering the five-year-old into the lead early, and then hitting the gas in the last lap for a convincing victory.

Elect to Rock is trained by Ashleigh’s father, Tony Camilleri, and owned by Darren Pollard, and both were quick to jump out onto the track after the race to congratulate their favourite driver.

The win capped off a sensational month of racing for Elect To Rock. Last night was the bay gelding’s fourth win in a row, including a sweet victory in the Maltese Cup the week before.

Camp Camilleri took over the reins of Elect to Rock this year, and they haven’t looked back.

Tony addressed the crowd after the race, heaping praise on the late Rocky Baker for his magnificent contribution to Broken Hill Harness Racing, and also his generous family, who were on hand to present the cup to the winners.

Tony scored a training double last night after driver Luke Watson steered Thelonghaul to victory in race three.

Driver-trainer duo Cassie Robinson and Donald Pimm also scored a double with Rapacious in race two and Misperception in race five.
