Hay List & Black Caviar to Face Off in 2010 Patinack Farm Classic

Boom sprinters Hay List and Black Caviar have both been nominated for this Saturday’s $750,000 Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) at Flemington, the highly anticipated showdown one of the major highlights of Emirates Stakes Day.

Five-year-old Statue Of Liberty gelding Hay List is yet to be defeated this spring, emerging as the sprint star of the season stringing together three big wins in the McEwen Stakes and then the Group 1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley before going on to claim victory in the Gilgai Stakes at Flemington.

Meanwhile, Peter Moody’s brilliant mare Black Caviar resumed racing after an eight month spell to maintain her unbeaten record, making it seven victories from seven starts with first-up success in the Schillaci Stakes and then a last-start win in the Schweppes Stakes.

The two super sprinters are now set to come head-to-head in the Patinack Farm Classic on Saturday in the mouth watering clash punters all around the country have been awaiting.

However, whether connections will accept Hay List at final declaration stage tomorrow is still uncertain after the galloper suffered an injury late last week.

After jumping into his water trough Hay List suffered minor wounds to his leg that required stitches.

He received treatment at the Werribee Vet Clinic and although he is reportedly well, trainer McNair could still save Hay List for the Group 2 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) in his home state at Ascot on November 27.

Black Caviar’s suspended jockey Luke Nolen, aboard for five of her seven victories, will be replaced by Ben Melham who will ride the four-year-old Bel Esprit mare on Saturday.

The ride comes just after Melham was replaced by Michael Walker as the mount on Zavite in the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday. Zavite officially finishing last in the $6 million handicap on Tuesday.

There were also doubts over whether Hay List’s jockey Glyn Schofield would be cleared to ride him on Saturday.

Schofield was handed a seven-meeting ban for a careless riding charge from Victoria Derby Day aboard Quick Peek in the Salinger Stakes.

The jockey appealed the suspension and won, the ban lifted one day early allowing him to take the prized mount aboard Hay List.

The Patinack Farm Classic final field and barrier draw will be released tomorrow and published here along with a detailed race preview and betting tips to follow.
