Wolf Man Rocket, second on debut in Arcadia Feb. 14, completed the exacta again behind stablemate and GIII Coolmore Lexington S. third-place finisher Fame and Power (First Defence) going seven panels there last time Mar. 8. Co-favored alongside Hillbilly Royalty to earn his diploma here, the chestnut got off a step slow from the outside post in this eight-horse affair and tracked from a three-wide fifth off moderate early splits of :23.30 and :46.83. Swiftly picking off rivals on the backstretch, Wolf Man Rocket reeled in the pacesetting Hillbilly Royalty in mid-stretch and drew clear to graduate in style.
