Massive Long Weekend Looming For Lindsay Park
The Euroa-based Lindsay Park juggernaut appears set for a logistically challenging but potentially lucrative long weekend, if measured on numbers alone. Spanning Victoria, NSW, the ACT and South Australia over the next three days, where 26 stakes races will be run and won, Team Hayes/Dabernig has a hefty 32 runners. Promising Shadwell-owned 2YO colt Mashaheer will fly the flag solo at Morphettville on Saturday, while a third of 15 runners accepted for Flemington will contest the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap (as outlined in yesterday's news), including huge hope Redkirk Warrior. Fellow Shadwell Stud Redoute's Choice filly Nasaayim will be aiming to make it three on the trot in the Gr2 Sires' Produce, where she will line up against stablemate Seberate, a colt with a flashing lights run from the tail to fourth in the recent Gr1 Blue Diamond. Meanwhile Shokora will don the same silks in the Gr2 Kewney Stakes where she will be no doubt steam home as she did to run third in mid February's Gr3 Vanity. At Randwick, the team kicks off in the third, the Gr2 Reisling Stakes, with Fastnet Rock filly Ennis Hill, followed by seriously talented filly Tulip and Hinchinbrook entire Derryn in the Gr1 Canterbury Stakes. Sunday the team moves to Canberra with 10YO gelding Jacquinot Bay in the Listed Canberra Cup and 2YO filly Qafila in the Gr3 Black Opal Stakes. Then on Monday the highlights will be last start Festival Stakes-winning filly Nomothaj contesting the Adelaide Magic Millions 2YO Classic and Fanatic, Al Haram and Let's Elope's granddaughter Raindrops On Roses in the Gr2 Adelaide Cup. Perhaps most prized of all though for David Hayes will be Race 5 on Monday at Morphettville where 6YO Fastnet Rock gelding Petrology will represent a quintet of owners, including Hayes himself, in the Listed C S Hayes Memorial Cup.
