Oaklawn Park Barn Notes: Lone Rock Climbs to Top

By |January 15th, 2022|

(Lone Rock / Coady Photography & Courtesy of Oaklawn Park) From the Oaklawn Park Media Team: Trainer Robertino Diodoro said in November that Lone Rock’s 2022 racing schedule could include another shot in Grade 1 company after the gelding became energized in marathon events last year. Diodoro has that Grade 1 race circled and a familiar path to try and get there. Diodoro said Friday morning that Lone Rock, a millionaire multiple Grade 2 winner, is pointing for the $600,000 Razorback Handicap (G3) for older horses Feb. 12 at Oaklawn. If all goes well in the 1 1/16-mile race, Diodoro said the $12 million Dubai World Cup (G1) March 26 in the United Arab Emirates will be on the table. The Dubai World Cup is 2,000 meters, or about 1 ¼ miles. The Razorback would be Lone Rock’s first start at less than 1 1/8 miles since an allowance victory
