Injury Woes Continue For Hay List

Injury plagued sprinter Hay List has been rushed to the Randwick Equine Centre after suffering yet another setback with the leg infection that derailed his Brisbane winter campaign.

Hay List continues to be plagued by injury problems

Trainer John McNair moved the horse to Randwick from his Central Coast base after the Group One winner’s condition deteriorated.

“He went backwards overnight so I rang the vet and got him to come out and look at him,” said McNair.

“We had put a poultice on his back foot a couple of days ago and when he was sore in his yard this morning I thought it might be because maybe something was coming out.

“I got the vet out and the nerve blocked the foot and it just got worse. We made the decision then that we were far better off sending him up to the Randwick Equine Centre. They have got everything you need as far as scanning a horse is concerned.”

McNair said that he couldn’t be sure whether or not Hay List’s current problems stemmed from the foot abscess he picked up in Brisbane because the horse was not carrying any visible injuries.

In fact before this latest setback McNair was of the opinion that his horse was on improving.

Glyn Schofield actually came and paid him a visit on Wednesday and the horse was good as gold,” said McNair.

Hay List has been invited to compete in the lucrative Japanese sprint races at the end of the year, however McNair said he would not be looking at any races until his horse had reached peak fitness again.

McNair’s went some of the way to reversing his recent bad luck when Com’Ear saluted for the veteran trainer in the first race at Gosford earlier today. He also had First Episode run third on debut in the fifth race of the day.
