Polanski A Likely Scratching For CS Hayes Stakes

Unable to take to the course in last week’s Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield due to a skin infection, talented sprinter Polanski appears on the verge of being scratched from the Group 2 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) tomorrow after reports his condition has re-flared.

Removed from last weekend’s Group 2 on veterinary orders after it was discovered he was suffering from a nasty case of ringworm, the Rakti colt’s condition appeared to improve in the early stages of this week, however morning preparations today revealed the agitated rash had advanced.

“I took his rug off about 10 minutes ago (around 8am eastern time) and his skin is still looking very ordinary – he’s most unlikely to run tomorrow” trainer Robbie Laing told TVN this morning.

Polanski’s preparation towards a run in the Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 1st was hampered last week when unable to line up for his 2014 debut, and now it appears the classy three-year-old will have to head into the Group 1 feature first-up.

“The horse is ready to go – he’s fit now” Laing added.

“I have no fear at all in going to the Australian Guineas first-up, none at all.

“I’m just glad we’re having there issues at the start of his prep, not a week before the Australian Derby.”

Polanski ended a memorable 2013 Spring campaign with three consecutive victories, including the Group 2 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Victoria Derby ahead of Complacent and Thunder Fantasy.

Prior to the news of his likely scratching this morning, Polanksi was sitting as fourth favourite ($7.50) to claim first-up success in the CS Hayes Stakes behind Hucklebuck ($3.60), The Quarterback ($4.50) and Prince Harada ($6).
