Choisir Colt Wins for JHB
Tara Madgwick - Wednesday August 30
The James Harron Bloodstock colours were carried to victory at Canterbury on Wednesday by flashy chestnut Choisir colt Faeger, a $560,000 Inglis Easter purchase from the draft of Bell View Park Stud.

Faeger as a yearlingRace fit with two recent runs under his belt and fitted with blinkers for the first time, the Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt stalked the leader and kicked away to win the 1100 metre maiden by half a neck over the fast finishing Pierro colt Hong Qigong.

"It was a tradesman like win and it's good to see him get the job done," said Paul Snowden.

There was plenty of merit to the win as the runner up looks well above average and they ran a class record for the 1100 metres.

The most expensive yearling by Choisir sold in 2016, Faeger was bought by James Harron Bloodstock and runs for a big syndicate of influential breeders and owners including Arthur and Charlotte Inglis.

Bred by Bell View Park in partnership, Faeger is the third winner for General Nediym mare Fairchild, a daughter of Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Dancer's Joy.

Fairchild was on-sold by Bell View Park last year and purchased for $370,000 at the Inglis Broodmare Sale by Paul Willetts Bloodstock Consultancy and is now with Three Bridges. She produced a chestnut colt by Shooting to Win last spring and is in foal to Snitzel.
