Hayes / Dabernig training partnership is wheeling out the two year-old winners at
present with this talented daughter of Fastnet Rock bolting clear to win as she
pleased in the Coolmore navy blue.
Formality was a short priced favourite and never gave punters a moment for
concern as she jumped fast and crossed to find the fence before settling
sweetly for Mark Zahra.
Asked to go quicker up the straight, she quickly responded to dash away and win
the 1100 metre maiden by more than four lengths eased down.
Formality is now likely to progress towards Black Type races with the Blue Diamond lead up
races and possibly the MRC Chairmans Stakes on February 4 named as likely targets.
Formality was listed as a $120,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the Coolmore
draft by Inglis as agent and runs for Coolmore and partners.
She is the fourth winner from four foals to race from 2009 Singapore Horse of
the Year, Jolie’s Shinju (Jpn), whose current yearling, a colt by Fastnet Rock,
has been entered for the 2017 Inglis Australian Easter Yearling sale by Coolmore.
Formality is the third juvenile debut winner by Fastnet Rock to come out of the
Lindsay Park training centre in recent weeks joining Catchy and Will’s Bid.
