Roller Coaster (Rocco - Unala, by Lord) was the Champion of the $30,000 AmeriChoice 6-year-old Eastern League Finals at the Hampton Classic in 2001. Elaine De Canio's grey stallion and Todd Minikus posted three clear rounds plus the fastest time in the three-horse jump off to take the title, $9000 in prize money and a custom saddle from Antares Sellier of France. Roller Coaster was approved by AHHA with 50 bonit points.

Coming-Star finished in the top 15 of the 5, 6 and 7-year-old Eastern League Finals in 2002, 2003 and 2004 respectively. He and owner rider Robin Sweely also journeyed to the 2004 World Breeding Championship for Sport Horses in Lanaken, Belgium where they finished 13th overall with 4 faults.
