Hay List is on track for a return in the 2013 Challenge Stakes

Widely regarded as the nation’s second best sprinter behind Black Caviar before injury forced him to the sidelines, Hay List has returned to work and is so far showing signs that he will make a successful return to the track.

“I couldn’t be much happier except if he was racing,” trainer John McNair told Sky Sports Radio.

“Glyn Schofield has galloped the horse twice and we just backed right off of him from Christmas to New Year…Monday the plan is for him getting back into it again.”

McNair is not only confident that Hay List can return to the track, he believes on what the seven-year-old has shown so far he can return to the sort of form that has seen him win 15 of 23 starts and collect more than $2.5 million in prizemoney.

“I am very confident the horse is going to come back and come back good,” McNair said.

The Gosford trainer said the son of Statue Of Liberty is likely to have two trials in the lead-up to the Challenge Stakes in an effort to ensure he is at 100 per cent.

If not for the world’s best sprinter Black Caviar, his record would be even more impressive as he has finished runner-up to the super mare on four occasions.

The big sprinter began his career in Perth where he showed he was destined for bigger things when winning the first eight starts of his career.

Hay List has won three times at Group 1 level including a remarkable performance in last year’s Newmarket Handicap when he carried 58.5kg to chase down and beat Queensalnd sprinter Buffering in a photo.
