Unique Trade Fair Double
Alwyn Park Stud-based Trade Fair gained a unique double late last week – and 14,500km apart.
Firstly, Corporate Larrikin (from Corporate Lady, by Corporate Raider) made it two in a row when dashing over 1200m to take the Linley Valley Pork Handicap at Albany, WA, on Thursday.
Then Honest Deal (from Sincerely, by Singspiel) gained his fifth win when leading all the way over 1 1/2 miles to win the 32 Red Handicap at Wolverhampton, England, on Friday.
Swap Ya then went within a nose of making it a Trade Fair treble on consecutive days when beaten a nose in the Robinson Handicap (1000m) at Ascot, WA, on Saturday.
Trade Fair, set for a big year with his star international sons Trade Storm and Packing Whiz both chasing Group 1 glory, has sired 121 individual winners.
