It was a great day out for the stable when the Michael Lakey trained Rare Fragrance saluted in the SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS AUSTRALIA BenchMark 75 Handicap (1500 METRES) at Eagle Farm on Sat 22nd of Feb.
Sent out a 2.20 favourite Rare Fragrance was slow away but a patient and tactical ride from top hoop Chris Munce had her tracking through the field to be just behind the leaders rounding the home turn. When clear at the top of the straight the Show a Heart mare sprinted well to run down King Ludwig and Awesome Ransome finishing third.
Rarely out of a place, Rare Fragrance has always has been a model of consistency and looks to have a very bright future ahead.
Congratulations to long time stable clients: Hutchins Thoroughbreds, Mr J S Hutchins, Mr J A Hutchins, Mr J T Hutchins.
