Saratoga Springs, NY - Youaremyrock (Boston Red Rocks) has been solid as can be this season and on Saturday evening (May 11) the Mark Beckwith-trained 4-year-old completed a sweep of the Doc Frank Memorial Pacing Series at Saratoga Casino Hotel.

Youaremyrock joined the Beckwith barn in early April while riding a two-race win streak. The young pacer rattled off consecutive wins upon coming to the Spa before heading into the Doc Frank Memorial Pace where he would wind up as a 1-5 favorite or less in each of the first three legs. Brett Beckwith sat behind Youaremyrock who was went off at 2-5 while drawing post two for his try in the $30,200 Saturday final.

Youaremyrock wasted little time moving out to the early lead and cruised unopposed through a first half that went in :57.3. Three-leg winner Bruce’s Vo N Coke (Wally Hennessey) was tasked with coming first-over on the big favorite and fought gamely while challenging the leader in lap two. Youaremyrock proved to be just too tough and lengthened his win streak to eight on Saturday when he completed a wire-to-wire, 1:55.1 score to complete the series sweep. Bruce’s Vo N Coke stayed hot as he finished a strong second to the favorite while longshot War Memorial (Mitch Cushing) had his best finish of the series when he finished third behind the bettors’ top two choices.

Youaremyrock is owned in partnership by his trainer Mark Beckwith and Rick Berks.

Live racing continues on Sunday afternoon with a 14 race card highlighted by the John Mongeon Memorial Trotting Series final which will go for a purse of $31,400.
