Hay List Will Race Again – McNair

Dedicated Gosford horseman John McNair has spoken out about rumours his multiple Group 1 winning champ Hay List has run his last race insisting that the hulking six-year-old would be back on the track doing what he does best again.

Hay List

Triple Group 1 champion Hay List is currently sidelined with injury

Winner of the 2010 Manikato Stakes and 2011 All Aged Stakes, Hay List suffered a career and life threatening leg infection last winter which saw the now six-year-old Statue of Liberty gelding spend over nine months on the sidelines.

Hay List returned fighting fit and back to his best this summer running a brave second to his arch nemesis Black Caviar first-up in the Lightning Stakes before posting a historic win when carrying 58.5kg to victory in the Newmarket Handicap at Flemington on March 10.

Last start the gallant galloper was sensationally beaten into second behind boom three-year-old Foxwedge in the William Reid Stakes under the lights at Moonee Valley.

Late last week the champ suffered another serious career setback, a double-blow with Hay List injuring his knee after undergoing emergency surgery for colic.

While racetrack whispers are running rampant that Hay List will be retired, McNair has said his stable ace is recovering well and that a full recovery was far from a pipe dream.

“He does have an issue with his knee but we are a lot happier with the horse today than we were late last week,” McNair said.

“There have been a lot of rumours about the horse but it is definitely premature to suggest he has run his last race.”

To date Hay List has won 15 of their 23 career starts for over $2.5 million in prize money, figures that had he not come up against a freakish sprinter in Black Caviar would have been much higher.

Still three Group 1’s and counting, if you take McNair’s word, is nothing to baulk at and Hay List truly has earned his spot in the history books.
