Press Statement Wins Gr2 Stan Fox Stakes
At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Yarraman Park's Gr3-winning & 4-time Gr1-placed stallion Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets) added a Group success when high profile 3YO colt Press Statement (Hinchinbrook-Kaaptive Empress, by Kaaptive Edition) scored by 3-lengths for trainer Chris Waller in the $198,000 Gr2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m), over fellow colts Shards (Medaglia d'Oro-Shatters, by Lonhro) & Rageese (Street Cry-Rabsha, by Dehere). Cruised to the line by jockey Hugh Bowman, Press Statement took his record to 4 wins (also including the Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes) & 1 placing (in the Gr2 Run To The Rose) from 6 starts for $669,775 earnings. Made outright favourite for the upcoming Gr1 Caulfield Guineas immediately following his comfortable win, Press Statement races for a prominent group of owners, among them Vinery Stud, China Horse Club Racing & Raffles Thoroughbred Racing.
