Stephen R. Ferguson’s multiple graded stakes-placed gelding Rockinn On Bye, the richest Maryland-bred currently in training, snapped a 31-month losing streak with a thrilling last-to-first head victory over favored Showalter in the featured ninth race at Laurel Park on June 2.



It was the first win in 28 races for 8-year-old Maryland-bred Rockinn On Bye ($6), who ran 6 furlongs in 1:10.77 over a fast main track in the $47,000 third-level optional claiming allowance for 3-year-olds and up. Bred by Sycamore Hall Farm LLC and purchased by Ferguson for $6,500 at the 2012 Fasig-Tipton Midlantic Fall Yearling sale, Rockinn On Bye has earned $529,530 in 56 starts. His stakes-placings include a second in the 2017 Frank J. De Francis Memorial Dash-G3 and a third in the 2016 Maryland Sprint Handicap-G3. Read more
