Age of Fire, trained by Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards, was superior when claiming the $225,000 Group 1 Levin Classic 1600m at Trentham in January 2018 – making it back to the stable with Hall of Fame having won the 2017 edition.

Both colts were purchased by David Ellis, with Age of Fire (Fastnet Rock) being selected and purchased for A$400,000 from the Sydney Easter Sale.

At only the colt’s fifth start, he was runner up to stablemate Embellish in the Group 1 NZ 2000 Guineas at Riccarton in November 2017, having finished third in the Listed Barneswood Farm Stakes at Ashburton the start prior.

Age of Fire, courtesy of a vintage Opie Bosson ride, became his rider’s sixth Group 1 Levin Classic success – and gave co-trainer Jamie Richards his 11th Group 1 training success in just under two and a half seasons of training.
