Kavanagh’s Colt Shows Sheer Talent in CS Hayes Stakes 2013 Win

Mark Kavanagh-trained colt Sheer Talent gave a glimpse into the potential the experienced trainer always knew he had when winning the Group 3 2013 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m).

Kavanagh shelled out $350,000 for the son of Redoute’s Choice as a yearling but he had failed to live up to expectations prior to today.

But arriving on the back of a solid fourth at Caulfield two weeks ago, the emerging galloper booked a possible 2013 Australian Guineas berth when beating home Greg Eurell-trained pair Force Command and Hosting.

Kavanagh has always known the horse has plenty of ability but admitted to some surprise as to how just how well he performed given he has improvement to come.

“We were a little bit surprised. We thought he’d go very well but I just thought he had that much improvement in him, he’d be better off next start,” Kavanagh said.

“The way the Guineas is sort of looking right now we’ll make up our mind in a week or two as to which way we go.”

It was the second win of the day for the trainer-jockey combination of Kavanagh and Stephen Baster.

Baster was impressed with the professional way Sheer Talent raced today and is expecting him to go on to bigger and better things as he steps up in distance.

“To the horse’s credit he just relaxed and lobbed into a position and did everything perfect,” Baster said.

“I think he’s definitely going to be better over more ground.”
