Misfired Trial Rules out Hay List’s Return Mission

Saturday week’s 2013 Missile Stakes at Royal Randwick has been ruled out as a first-up mission for the injury-prone Hay List after they finished midfield in a trial at the same track on Friday morning.

Not having raced since breaking down to run 19 lengths away 10th to super mare Black Caviar in the TJ Smith Stakes in April, the John McNair-trained Hay List was tipped for an August return on the 10th in the $125,000 Group 3 Missile Stakes (1200m).

However it’s now back to the drawing board for the Gosford-based McNair after the veteran Statue Of Liberty eight-year-old failed to impress in their hit-out this morning.

A triple Group 1 champ and $2.5 million earner, Hay List has faced many adversities over their 25-start career to date including life threatening bouts of colic, infection and other injuries.

They looked on track to leave that behind them for one last Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival this year however with a lovely 800m trial running second on July 19 with regular rider Glyn Schofield in the saddle.

Something went amiss when they were stepped up to the 1000m for another jumpout this week though putting the breaks on their new season debut.

In the second of the morning Hay List and Schofield could only manage to run fifth behind the Gai Waterhouse-trained trio of No Looking Back, Fast Clip and Ashokan with the winner posting a time of 59.8 seconds.

Waterhouse meanwhile also took out the opening trial with the Queen’s horse Carlton House doing a very nice job to put two lengths on last year’s Melbourne Cup runner-up and stablemate Fiorente.

While stating there was nothing wrong with Hay List, McNair said he simply just was not fit enough to return just yet.
