FEDERATION scores back to back wins in Singapore – now three wins from six starts


Fortuna Syndication’s Three Year Old Gelding, FEDERATION (Written Tycoon-Bloomingdale Miss) was dominant in the Class 4 S$50,000 event at Singapore’s Kranji race course 9th June 2019 to record back to back wins and his 3rd career win.

FEDERATION was having his 6th race day start and now has the very good record of three wins, a 2nd and two fourths and over S$$130,000 of prize money. FEDERATION had been inclined to race very keenly in his earlier Singapore runs, however the removal of the blinkers by Trainer Mark Walker on the occasion of his previous victory had seen him relax nicely in the run. Away from the barriers well today, rider John Powell got him to relax nicely again and he raced in a mid field position – coming into the race  before they turned for home, he seemed to be along way from the leaders coming down the straight, but Johnny Powell got to work on him and with a relentless finishing run, he gathered in and put paid to the opposition, winning the race by one and a half lengths with his stable mate, Atlantic Fox in 2nd place.
