Tyler's golden moment aboard Neasham-trained stayer in feature race

Bennett Racing - Sunday March 24

More stakes success for Bennett Racing with English import Fawkner Park (IRE) easily winning Friday’s Listed Albury Gold Cup.

The 5yo son of Zoffany simply toyed with his rivals, putting them to the sword in the straight winning easing down by 1.17Len. Jockey Tyler Schiller was content to let the gelding settle in the back half after jumping well. Always in a good rhythm throughout, Tyler made his move turning for home as he steadied the import around the turn before unleashing a withering finish and easing down near the line.

A terrific training effort by Annabel Neasham and her team after am out of character run in the Australian Cup Prelude 13 days ago. At Flemington the import didn’t seem to handle the Melbourne way of going and after giving away a huge start throughout the race, he hung in all the way down the straight. The Team picked out the Albury Cup for Fawkner Park to contest on the way back to NSW but those plans may be on hold after such a brilliant display.

It was Fawkner Park’s 14th start (11th in Australia) and he took his record to 6 wins 1x 2nd 1 x 3rd and earnings of $388,002. He was a 120k gns purchase from the 2022 Tattersalls Horses In Training Sale by Bennett Racing & Stuart Boman.
