Schofield Injured Ahead of Hay List 2013 Challenge Stakes Ride

Glyn Schofield injured his back at Canterbury on Wednesday but is confident he can recover in time to take the prized ride aboard Hay List in the Group 2 2013 Challenge Stakes (1000m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The experienced rider aggravated an old injury and will receive treatment over the next couple of days to give himself every chance of partnering the triple Group 1 winner in his own return from injury.

“It just went again and it is quite sore but I’m sure it will be right for Saturday,” Schofield said.

There have been no arrangements to book another rider, with trainer John McNair backing Schofield’s judgement that he will be fine for Saturday.

Schofield admits Hay List is not at his peak but is confident class can see him add another victory to his record which currently stands at 15 wins from 23 starts.

Hay List has had a troublesome 12 months with injury and had a minor scare after it was discovered he had heat in his hoof following an exhibition gallop at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The seven-year-old has drawn barrier two for his comeback sprint where he will line up in a quality 12-horse field.

Among the major challengers are Gerald Ryan-trained pair Snitzerland and Mrs Onassis.

Mrs Onassis won the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield last month while classy filly Snitzerland is running first-up after an outstanding spring campaign.

The 2012 Golden Slipper runner-up won four of six spring starts and boasts an overall record of six wins from 11 outings and a prize pool of more than $1.3 million.

Other Challenge Stakes contenders include Group 1 winners Temple Of Boom and Atomic Force and Joe Pride’s front-runner Tiger Tees.
