Hollindale Confirms Class Of The Kingdom Of Fife

The incredible 2011 of Chris Waller has continued with the find of the year recording his third successive victory.

My Kingdom Of Fife was unbeaten in Australia going into the Hollindale Stakes and after the race he had taken that record to three from three.

If you’re yet to hear the story of My Kingdom Of Fife it really is quite spectacular.

He began racing in England for Queen Elizabeth where he enjoyed limited success but fairly consistent performances.

Chris Waller brought the horse over as part of his ongoing importation of European stayers but by his won admission thought it’d take a year or so to produce any real form and even then it might be the odd Saturday class win.

For that reason My Kingdom Of Fife went into his first test, the Doncaster Prelude as a 150 to 1 shot before blitzing the field.

His next test was the Queen Elizabeth Stakes where he was again well adrift of the favourite but once more he showed a trademark closing kick.

Even today in the Hollindale stakes he wasn’t a clear favourite, sharing the mantle with the likes of Heart Of Dreams and Shoot Out.

A different tactic was employed as well and he settled a lot closer to the pace, just one back from the leaders and one wide of the fence.

His move came a lot earlier as well, about 600m from the line as they rounded the turn.

He showed his class though and was never really threatened, a great effort given there were five Group 1 winners in the field.

It entrenches him as a huge hope in the feature events later in the Brisbane carnival and ensure he certainly won’t be overlooked again by punters.

Also worth noting in the run was the effort of Glass Harmonium which made his debut in Australia today and was less than a length off the winner at the end.

Scenic Shot also ran on well despite finding trouble and will be a contender in the big events to come at Eagle Farm and Doomben.

As for the other favourites Shoot Out once again may have had excuses however they will we wearing thin with punters who continue to back him on faith from last years form.

Heart Of Dreams in a big blow for Mick Price who was so confident before the race.

It’s a day all about My Kingdom Of Fife though and yet another win for Waller and his now famous importation scheme.
