On an unseasonably cold night with frost warnings in effect, driver Yannick Gingras was concerned about the front-end holding up Sunday (May 15) at Flamboro Downs for Rockin Ron in the $244,000 Confederation Cup. Trainer Ron Burke said he secretly shared similar concerns, especially since he knew the front was where Rockin Ron had to be if he had a chance to beat U.S. Horse of the Year Wiggle it Jiggleit. Yet, despite some apprehension, Burke — who had three horses in the nine-horse field — told Gingras not to worry.
