23/9/2019  149 for Fastnet Rock

British-bred Brimham Rocks (5 g ex Colima by Authorized) was among a host of winners for Chris Waller yesterday as he recorded a deserved first stakes victory in the MRC Foundation Cup (Gr 3, 2000m) at Caulfield - a win that provided Coolmore shuttler Fastnet Rock (Danehill) with his 149th stakes winner. Beaten a nose in last year’s Metropolitan Handicap (Gr 1, 2400m), Brimham Rocks registered a first success on Australian soil with a length and a quarter victory over stablemate So You Win (So You Think), bringing up a quinella for their trainer in the Group 3 contest. Sikandarabad (Dr Fong) finished a further length and three quarters adrift in third. Fastnet Rock is standing at Coolmore Australia for a fee of $165,000 (inc GST) this year.
