Mr Fisk produced a strong finish as he powered to victory in this year’s Native Diver Stakes. Under a brilliant ride from Juan Hernandez, Hernandez was happy to sit just off the pace and made his move as they approached the home turn.

Looking to take advantage of his early speed, Arrowthegreat led the field through the early stages of the contest but found himself quickly swarmed by the three race principles, Newgrange, Skinner and Mr Fisk.

With a thrilling finish in store, Newgrange was the first to crack, which left Skinner and Mr Fisk to battle it out for the honors.
