Memsie Stakes First Point of Call for Returning Jet Away

Unable to take part in the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival after badly injuring a tendon during the running of the Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) and Flemington last year, trainer David Hayes has outlined the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) on August 30 as the likely returning target for Jet Away this spring.

A notable performer over just three competitive starts through the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, Jet Away claiming pre-post favouritism for the Mackinnon Stakes after blazing home to finish fourth in the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m), but was unable to handle the late going and sixth; later found to have seriously damaged a tendon.

Having taken a slow and steady approach to rehabilitation, Hayes said he is pleased with the way Jet Away has returned to work and is confident he will again find peak condition this time in.

“He’s having two good gallops a week and we’ll kick him off in the Memsie,” Hayes told TVN.

“His leg is great – you wouldn’t know he had an issue there.

“It would be terrific to have him back to where he was because he’s a very, very good galloper and he could win a big one during the spring if he finds his best form.”

Claiming an impressive total of eight race wins and five minor places from 21 competitive starts to date, Jet Away begin his racing career under the guidance of the late, great British trainer Sir Henry Cecil before transferring to the care of Hates at the beginning of 2013.

Winning both the Golden Mile (1600m) in Bendigo and the Group 3 Easter Cup (2000m) in his first two starts in Australia through the 2013 autumn, Jet Away has more than stamped his claims as one to watch through the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival, despite being yet to appear on course competitively this year.
