The Bart Cummings stable advised Racing Victoria stewards that last season's Champion 3YO Filly Faint Perfume (Shamardal-Zona, by Zabeel) "has been retired after failing to recapture her 3YO form". Faint Perfume (passed-in for $40,000 & retained to race by Think Big Stud at the 2008 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney) recorded 5 wins (including 2010's Gr1 Vinery Stud Stakes over 2000m at Rosehill & Gr2 Kewney Stakes over 1400m at Flemington, plus 2009's Gr1 Crown Oaks over 2500m at Flemington & Gr2 Salinger Stakes over 2000m at Flemington) & 2 placings (in 2010's Gr1 Patinack Farm AJC Oaks over 2400m at Randwick & 2009's Gr1 Thousand Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield) from 19 starts for $1,456,290 earnings.
