At Flemington in Melbourne, deceased former Armidale Stud stallion Helike (Rahy-East of the Moon, by Private Account) added a Group race success when 7YO chestnut gelding Hellova Street (Helike-Butter Street, by Secret Savings) scored a typically brave front-running win in the $200,000 Gr3 TCL TV Stakes (1400m) for 3YO+, defeating Supply And Demand & Fox Hall. The Tasmanian-trained Hellova Street boosted his already impressive record to 14 wins (including the Listed Newmarket Handicap – twice, Listed VRC March Stakes, Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes & Listed Tattsbet.com Stakes) and 12 placings (including the Listed Tasmanian Stakes) from 32 starts for $729,375 in earnings.
At Morphettville racecourse in Adelaide, Newgate Farm's Gr1-winning shuttle stallion Foxwedge (Fastnet Rock-Forest Native, by Forest Wildcat) added a black-type success when 3YO bay gelding Fox Hall (Foxwedge-Val de Loire, by Montjeu) won the $110,000 Listed Nitschke Stakes (1400m) for 3YOs, defeating Cappadocia & Weather Channel. Fox Hall, who was a $170,000 purchase by his trainer Tony McEvoy at the 2015 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling Sale from the draft of Edinglassie Stud, advanced his record to 3 wins and 3 placings from 8 starts for $115,700 earnings. From the Montjeu mare Val de Loire, Fox Hall hails from the family of Australian Oaks winner Royal Descent, Gr2-winning Kaapstad mare Mulan Princess, multiple Group winner and sire Falkirk (Tale Of The Cat), stakes winner Greta Hall, and brilliant dual Gr1 winner Golden Sword.
