Boss Doubly Assured of Goodwood Ride

Champion Melbourne Cup winning jockey Glen Boss has a back-up ride if hulking sprinter Hay List doesn’t make the trip to Adelaide for The Goodwood after Caulfield trainer Mick Price confirmed Dubleanny for the Group 1 sprint.


Dubleanny is heading to Adelaide for The Goodwood after winning on Anzac Day

Boss, most famous for his triple shot of Melbourne Cup glory with Makybe Diva, rode the John McNair-trained Hay List to an impressive victory in the mud last Saturday in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).

Hay List’s regular rider Glyn Schofield suffered a nasty fall from Hawk Island breaking his collarbone in the Sydney Cup moments before the All Aged at Randwick, leading Boss to take the ride on the eventual winner.

It was the first time Boss had been aboard Hay List.

That association could continue if Hay List’s connections decide to travel to Morphettville for the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) on May 8.

However, with Goodwood plans still up in the air due to the hefty cost of flying Hay List to Adelaide, Boss remains on standby to ride fellow Goodwood hopeful Dubleanny.

Four-year-old Dubleo mare Dubleanny raced into Goodwood contention with a smart one and a quarter length win in the $75,000 Auckland Racing Club Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on Anzac Day.

A run in The Goodwood will be a tough test for Dubleanny as she will likely face off against the likes of last year’s Golden Slipper winner Crystal Lily and Sportingbet Classic champion Response.

“You have to have a go,” said Price.

“She (Dubbleanny) can be a funny mare.

“She can throw up a high white cell blood count, but if I can get her over to Adelaide in one piece she’ll be in with a chance.”

Price is attempting his third success in The Goodwood having previously trained 2006 winner Perfectly Ready and last year’s champion Velocitea.

Her Anzac Day win boosted Dubleanny’s total career record to seven wins from 14 starts for over $397,000 in prize money.

Nominations for The Goodwood close at midday today.
