Fabric continues winning association

An association spanning more than 15 years continues to pay dividends for Waikato Stud and trainer Danny O’Brien.

Ocean Park mare Fabric, winner of today’s Fight Cancer Foundation Handicap at Caulfield, is the latest winner for them.

The association between O’Brien and Waikato Stud dates back to 2004 with Glamour Puss, a dual Group One winner of the Goodwood Handicap and Salinger Stakes.

“It’s a relationship we’ve had for a long, long time with Waikato Stud and they’re in the top three studs in Australasia,” O’Brien said.

“They’re a sensational operation and any horse you get from them, there’s a fair chance it will be a good horse.

“It’s Mark Chittick’s birthday today, so we’re very happy to get a win for him.”

O’Brien said Fabric would now get her chance to step up to stakes level in the Gr.2 Blazer Stakes at Flemington on October 5.

“She’s a filly that showed good promise as a three-year-old but she’s come back a bit bigger and stronger,” O’Brien said.
