On his three-year-old debut, Fascinating Rock started at odds of 9/1 in an eight-runner maiden over ten furlongs at Leopardstown on 30 March and won by a length from the Aidan O’Brien-trained Adjusted. At Navan Racecourse two weeks later the colt was moved up in class for the Group Three Ballysax Stakes and started 5/2 second favourite behind the Jim Bolger-trained Answered. He produced a strong run on the outside in the straight to take the lead a furlong out and won by two and a half lengths from Answered. The colt’s next race was the Derrinstown Stud Derby Trial over ten furlongs at Leopardstown on 11 May, for which he started favourite against five opponents headed by the Beresford Stakes winner Geoffrey Chaucer. After being held up at the rear of the six runner field he finished strongly but failed by a head to overhaul the John Oxx-trained Ebanoran. He had been bumped by the “winner” in the closing stages and after a stewards’ enquiry the placings of the first two finishers were reversed and the race awarded to Fascinating Rock.
