All American Ready for Railway Stakes

Trainer David Hayes is hungry for success in this Saturday?s $1million Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot. Nearly 20 years have passed since he was last involved in a Railway success, and four-year-old All American is set to break the drought.

Hayes has not seen success in Perth?s premier thoroughbred event since his father trained the 1989 winner Better Loosen Up, but he is quietly hopeful this year with emerging talent All American currently the $5.50 second favourite for the race.

The punters are backing All American well following his upset win in the Emirates Stakes last start at Flemington on November 11 over the same 1600m distance. ?The victory, however, has attracted a hefty weight of 56kg that All American must carry and if victorious he will break the weight-to-win record. No Railway Stakes winner has bettered Hayes? Better Loosen Up who carried a hefty 55.5kg to victory.

Ridden by in-form jockey Corey Brown, All American pulled up well in the barrier draw and will start from gate two. Brown has had a sensational spring season, riding not only All American in his Emirates victory but also Monaco Consul in the Victoria Derby and Shocking in the Melbourne Cup for their wins.

Depending on Saturday?s performance, Hayes plans to either run All American in the Hong Kong Mile next month or spell the runner in anticipation of the autumn races including the Orr and Futurity Stakes.
