At Ascot racecourse in Perth, Western Australia, Darley's Gr1-winning shuttler Poet's Voice (Dubawi-Bright Tiara, by Chief's Crown) added a black-type success when 4YO Australian-bred gelding Trap For Fools (Poet's Voice-Old Money, by Old Spice) overcame a wide barrier to bound clear for a dominant front-running win in the $100,000 Listed GA Towton Cup (2200m) for 3YO+, defeating Angola & Falcon Crest. Trap For Fools continued his rise through the WA staying ranks with this impressive win to advance his record to 9 wins (including the Listed Tattersall's Cup) and 5 placings from 20 starts for $280,280 in earnings. Trap For Fools is out of the former good staying filly Old Money, winner of the Gr1 West Australian Derby & Gr2 West Australian Oaks.
