Some days are simply better than others!

Golden Slipper day was one of those with a number of friends having runners including Unencumbered, Alpha Miss and Mossfun.

 

Mossfun prevailed to win the Golden Slipper, the World's richest 2 year old race over 1200 metres. 

Mossfun was born and raised by Fairview Park Stud in the Hawkesbury of NSW before selling at the 2013 Easter yearling to Emirates Park Stud and being trained by Team Hawkes.
Fairview is a boutique stud run by sisters, Heather McKinnon and Linda Duckworth along with veterinarian husband Ian. Heather and Ian both work for Agnes Banks Equine while Linda and stuff run the stud. Mossfun was bred by Linda, Ian, Heather and long term employee and family friend Darren Pullman. On the 10th April 2014, Fairview sold the half-brother by Magic Albert to Mossfun (The Golden Slipper Winner) for a record Easter session price of $750,000.

We were absolutely thrilled for Fairview, a family owned and run business, just like us!

 

P.S. And a big congratulations to Noel and Emma Mayfield-Smith who won the BTC Cup 1200m group 1 race with Famous Seamus (NZ) Saturday 10th May 2014.

 

King regards...

Chris
