FIRST GROUP ONE WIN FOR TRAP FOR FOOLS AND JARROD

Nov 10, 2018

Trap For Fools has stunned class opposition to win the $2 million Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes over 2000 metres at Flemington.

It was a tough win with him going to the lead early and not being run down.

Winless in five previous black-type tilts, Trap For Fools ($26) capped off an eventful spring for Jarrod with an amazing triumph, holding off Irish Derby winner Latrobe and Victoria Derby winner Extra Brut.

Trap For Fools was given a brilliant ride by John Allen.

The win is Jarrod's first Group 1 success and the biggest in his career. 

It has been a great team effort to win this race. A huge thanks to all our staff headed by Lydia Rigg-Floyd who enjoyed the experience strapping her first Group 1 winner.
