Trade Fair is close to siring the magical 100 individual winners.
The success of Stock Trader and Grand Crusade at Northam on Thursday took the Alwyn Park Stud-based Trade Fair to within one of the milestone.
Stock Trader, by Trade Fair from Around Jindabyne, by Akhenaton, and bred by the leading Perth bloodstock agent John Chalmers, created a huge impression when he led to win the Maxman Maiden (1100m) by 3 1/4-length in 1.04.65 at his first start.
Around Jindabyne is a half-sister to both Salisbury Street, winner of the Listed Sheila Gwynne Stakes, and to Broome Time, a winner of eight races and co-holder of the Ascot 1400m record.
Grand Crusade, by Trade Fair from Search, by Royal Academy, and bred by Alan Young, resumed from a spell to win the Rose Maiden (1100m) by 1 1/4-lengths in 1.04.07.
At his debut, Grand Crusade was 1 1/2-lengths second to Star Of The Orient in the Ritz Party Hire Maiden (1200m) at Pinjarra on April 25, when he raced wide throughout. Star Of The Orient went on to win at Belmont Park.
Search is also the dam of the winners Search Me and Search ‘N’ Seek. She is a half-sister to Spielmeister, a five-time winner, second in the Group 3 Ellerston Capital Stakes and Listed Kensington Stakes at Flemington, where he was also fourth in the Group 1 Australian Guineas.
