Pago Rocks for Hayes 150th – Monash Stakes Results 2013

It was a fitting result for Hayes taking out the day’s marquee event, the $120,000 Listed Polytrack Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m), with his stable foreman Bruno Rougge-Seret quick to credit the entire team at the now Euroa-based Lindsay Park stable.

“It’s a great team effort, everyone’s been on board and everyone’s heading in the right direction,” he said.

“It’s great that we’re starting to win some of these (bigger) races.”

After a lovely ride from apprentice hoop and Hayes’ stable jockey Chad Schofield five-year-old Rock Of Gibraltar gelding Pago Rock, formerly prepared in WA and then in Melbourne by Peter Moody, made it two on the trot getting home a full length ahead of the Tony Vasil-trained Elite Elle ($8.50).

They had worked their way up after settling fourth on the fence behind the pacesetter Elite Elle, eventually running down the smart filly and drawing away over the final 100m to take home first prize putting a smile on Schofield’s dial.

“This horse has quite an important owner so it’s good to win on him,” Schofield said after the win.

“He’s now had four runs this preparation for three wins and the boss really has him in tip-top shape. He beat some pretty good horses today.”

Finishing off the Sir John Monash Stakes trifecta a further length and a half away in third was then Clinton McDonald’s Group performing Second Effort ($9) with $91 roughie Stanzout in fourth for the third straight year.

Hot favourite paying $3.70 was the Hawkes-trained Happy Galaxy who could only manage to finish about five lengths away sixth in their first run since winning the Group 2 Expressway Stakes (1200m0 in Sydney back on February 9.

As for the Sir John Monash Stakes winner, Pago Rock has now won 10 of their 18 career starts for over $357,000 in prize money and looks set for a nice campaign over the coming months during the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

There is a slight query over whether they will be fit for their coming prep however after blood was detected in one of their nostrils post-race.

Stewards announced the horse would have to pass an upcoming trial before being cleared to race again.

They have been with Hayes since April last year winning three of their seven starts for their new trainer.
