There Goes Rocket rallies to win in the Texas Stallion Stakes on Saturday night.

There Goes Rocket, benefiting from an additional furlong, was able to turn the tables on nemesis Roundabout Jones in the $125,000 colts and geldings division of the Texas Stallion Stakes on Saturday night. The race was one of two stakes on the card, with the $125,000 fillies division of the Texas Stallion won by Native Annie.

There Goes Rocket ($4.80) rallied past pacesetter and favorite Roundabout Jones for a 2 1/2-length win in the Texas Stallion, which was run over one mile.

* In the fillies division, Native Annie remained perfect in two career starts when she overcame a troubled start and went on to a 2 1/2-length win over Marxie.
