Easy pickings for Trade Fair

Trade Fair mare Easy Terms is back in the form that saw her win four on end in England last year.  Based with owner-trainer Edwin Tuer, she continued a rapid rise up the ranks to win the Jorvik Hcp (2400m) in a blanket finish at York on Friday.

Easy Terms (5m Trade Fair – Effie by Royal Academy) settled a fair way behind a frenetic pace before reeling in her rivals along the grandstands rail to score by a short-head from High Office (High Chaparral).  “She keeps answering every call and she’s won from good to heavy,” Tuer claimed.  “I’ll have to look at the calendar and see what’s in the programme.”

Trade Fair (Zafonic) has been permanently based at Lynward Park since 2009 after initially shuttling to Western Australia in 2006.  He was a G3 winner at Newmarket and was also G1 placed there in a Dewhurst Stakes.

“I don’t know what the key to Easy Terms has been,” Tuer added.  “The girl who rides her out said she’s really come on in the last month.  She had won first-up at Pontefract and mine usually come on for the run.”

Easy Terms is bred to get over ground.  Her dam is a sister to G1 Irish St Leger winner Sans Frontieres (Galileo) who was named Champion Older Stayer in GB & Ireland in 2010.

Trade Fair started 2012 with a bang in England when Moonstone Magic won by 8 lengths on debut at Leicester and then followed up with a 4 length victory in the G3 Fred Darling Stakes at Newbury.

Trade Fair (GB) has sired 95 individual winners world-wide and they have won 220 races at a 57% strike-rate.  He stands for a $6,050 (inc gst) service fee at Lynward Park.

His latest Australian winner Painted scored an on-pace victory at Belmont last Wednesday.  Trained at Lark Hill by Paul Dyson, the grey gelding had also won on Easter Eve at Ascot.
