Maluckyday Makes Return in 2012 Memsie Stakes

After almost 12 months without a race, 2010 Melbourne Cup runner-up will return at Caulfield on Saturday in the Group 2 2012 Memsie Stakes (1400m).


Maluckyday makes a long awaited return in Saturday's Memsie Stakes

Trained by John Hawkes and sons Michael and Wayne, the son of Zabeel started just once last spring for an eighth in the Chelmsford Stakes before being ruled out of the carnival with pneumonia.

Since his second to Americain in the Melbourne Cup, the six-year-old has raced just four times with his best results two fourth-place finishes in the 2011 Chipping Norton Stakes and Ranvet Stakes in Sydney.

Wayne Hawkes said yesterday that the team were excited to have the talented stayer back to full health and are just hoping he can put in a strong effort on Saturday.

“He won’t be winning on Saturday it’s as simple as that,” he said.

“But if he could run ninth or tenth and be hitting the line well then that will be good enough for us.

“We know what he can do and we know how good he is…he is a serious serious horse this bloke and it would be great to get him back.”

Despite being six years old, injury and illness mean the gelding has only had 13 starts from which he has scored five wins.

The last time Maluckyday tasted victory was the race prior to the Melbourne Cup when he won the Group 3 Lexus Stakes at Flemington.

In fact, four of his five career victories came during the 2010 spring campaign where he also won the Listed Tattersall’s Club Cub at Randwick.

The Melbourne-based stayer comes up against some classy horses in his first hitout with a quality 15-horse field named this morning.

Among the top chances are Perth star Luckygray, Cox Plate placegetter Rekindled Interest and the in-form pair Happy Trails and Second Effort.
