Yankee Rockstar returned to racing with a good win at Ballarat on October 9. It was his first start for 7 months after suffering travel sickness on his return from the Chariots Of Fire at Menangle. There were major concerns for his health and survival. It is a credit to the horse and the expert care that he received to have him back at the races. He returned a mile rate of 1.55.2 for the 2200 metres.
