Faint Perfume Wins Wakeful Stakes

Monday, 2nd November 2009

European champion 4-time Gr1-winning Darley shuttler Shamardal (Giant's Causeway-Helsinki, by Machiavellian) added a group success when daughter Faint Perfume (Shamardal-Zona, by Zabeel) motored past her rivals half-way down the straight & cruised home for a 3-lengths victory in the $300,000 Gr2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies at Flemington. Faint Perfume (ridden by Michael Rodd for trainer Bart Cummings) defeated Silent Surround (Face Value-Biography, by Rory's Jester) & top-weighted Melito (Redoute's Choice-Cloister, by Marauding). Faint Perfume (passed-in for $40,000 & retained to race by Think Big Stud at the 2008 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in Sydney) now has 2 wins & a placing (including last start's Gr1 Thousand Guineas over 1600m at Caulfield on October 14) from 6 starts for $260,590 earnings.
