Haggas Colt Continues Terrific Month For Australia
Sunday saw the William Haggas-trained King Fairy (3c Australia - My Fairy, by Sea The Stars) get off the market at the second time of asking at Hamilton.
The Sunderland Holdings homebred was sent off favourite for the maiden over an extended mile, having finished third when losing a shoe on debut earlier in the month. Ben Curtis rode the bay to track the leaders and asked him to quicken three furlongs from home. Improving to lead a furlong out, he stayed on well to win by three parts of a length.
King Fairy becomes the latest in a long list of maiden winners this month by his sire Australia, who has also been responsible for four Stakes winners in June alone. The colt also provides his dam with a perfect start at stud, she an unraced full-sister to Group 3 winner My Titania.
