Ballagh Rocks' name is quite fitting, as he is a son of Stormy Atlantic owned by Jerry Crawford's Donegal Racing.
Ballagh Rock Lighthouse is at the northern end of the channel of water between Aranmore Island and the County Donegal mainland on the northwest coast of Ireland. Ballagh Rock is the largest of a group of rocks collectively called Blackrocks, which are very exposed to seas especially from the north and north west.
The equine Ballagh Rocks notched his first graded win this summer when he won the Poker Stakes at Belmont Park. Since then, he's added a pair of thirds in Grade 1 company to his resume — in the Fourstardave Handicap at Saratoga and the Shadwell Turf Mile at Keeneland.
The Kentucky-bred 4-year-old colt was a $70,000 purchase at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale by Crawford. The Bill Mott trainee heads into the Breeders' Cup Mile with a slate of five wins from 14 starts and earnings of $526,910.
