At Royal Randwick, Coolmore's former Gr1-winning Champion Australian Sire Fastnet Rock (Danehill-Piccadilly Circus, by Royal Academy) celebrated a group success when high class 3YO filly Formality (Fastnet Rock-Jolie's Shinju, by Jolie's Halo) edged out a 0.2-length win for trainers David and Ben Hayes & Tom Dabernig in the $187,500 Gr2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) for 3YO fillies. Just denied in a close-up finish were fellow fillies Elizee & Champagne Cuddles. Formality, who was a $120,000 yearling buy at the 2016 Inglis Easter Sale, took her record to 3 wins (including the Gr3 Chairman's Stakes) & 2 placings (including the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes & Gr2 Percy Sykes Stakes) from 6 starts for $469,400 earnings.
