Cox Plate option for Trade Storm

Newmarket trainer David Simcock has reported Trade Storm exited from his G1 Woodbine Mile victory in good order.

“He arrived back home happy and well and is having an easy few days,” Simcock said.  “We will discuss plans with Sheikh Fahad but he will log more air miles in the near future.”

His options are the G1 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita on November 2 or the G1 Cox Plate in Australia on October 26.

Trade Storm (6h Trade Fair – Frisson by Slip Anchor) finished brilliantly to win the G1 Woodbine Mile in Canada last Saturday.  He beat top local hope Kaigun by a half length with Bobby’s Kitten nearly two lengths away third.

“He’s one of my all-time favourite horses,” Simcock said.  “He travels strongly when there’s a lot of pace.  He’s got nice pick-up speed and all he needs is the gaps to open.”

Trade Storm is a son of Serpentine-based Alwyn Park stallion Trade Fair and his dam Frisson is a daughter of Listed winner Comic Talent (Pharly).  His previous best win was in the G2 Zabeel Mile in Dubai.
