Starfield Stud resident Far Above (Ire) (Farhh {GB}) became Europe’s latest first-crop sire to get off the mark when his Jessica Harrington-trained son Rock N Roll Rocket (Ire) made a winning debut over five furlongs in Friday’s €25,000 Irish EBF Auction Series Maiden at Cork.

The 16-1 chance was positioned in mid division after an alert getaway. Inching forward from halfway, he came under pressure with a quarter-mile remaining and was ridden out inside the final furlong to deny Powerful Nation (Ire) (Sioux Nation) by a short-head nearing the line.
