At Belmont in West Australia, Lynward Park's Gr3-winning stallion Trade Fair (Zafonic-Danefair, by Danehill) added a Group success when 4YO mare Fuchsia Bandana (Trade Fair-Fuchsia Lady, by Jeune) scored by 0.75-length for trainer Darren Mcauliffe in the $150,000 Gr3 Hyperion Stakes (1600m) for 3YO+, over 4YO gelding Respondent (Haradasun-Avenida Madero, by Metal Storm) & 6YO gelding Tower Of Lonhro (Lonhro-Spire, by Danehill). Fuchsia Bandana took her record to 8 wins (including the Gr3 Northerly Stakes) and 7 placings (including the Gr3 Belmont Sprint & Listed WATC Birthday Stakes) from 19 starts for $527,615 earnings. Fuchsia Bandana will attempt to stretch her brilliance out to 2000m in the Strickland Stakes on Saturday week.
