HERO'S HOMECOMING: Fairy King Prawn is walked out at the Sha Tin stables complex after returning to Hong Kong following his stunning success in Japan's Yasuda Kinen on Sunday. Champion jockey elect Robbie Fradd was still coming to terms with the win, which saw the Ivan Allan-trained mount storm home in front of more than 112,000 excited fans at Tokyo racecourse for the first victory overseas by a Hong Kong-trained horse. 'Bloody exciting!' was Fradd's reaction yesterday. 'I started to think 'we can win this, we will win this', about 600 metres out. We just needed a clear run. He was travelling that well. 'He was really keen and still full of running and I hadn't even asked him a question whereas I had a sneak look around me and most of the others were doing the opposite. They weren't travelling. 'The track climbs a bit from the 600 to the 400-metre mark so I waited until after the rise and then let him go. I knew then it would take something really, really special to be able to get to us.' Fradd then added: 'From that moment I thought we had it won, I was convinced we had it won but I tried very, very hard not to get excited, to stay concentrated and focused and to get past that winning post. 'There were so many interviews it took a good hour before I saw the replay. We were all so excited. Ivan was over the moon. 'It must have taken a good hour before it remotely began to sink in. I now feel we've achieved something really worthwhile. It is what your career is all about.'
