Haybah Race Fit for 2015 Chairman’s Stakes

Nine two-year-old horses will face off against each other in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes (1000m) at Sandown on Saturday, the majority of which are running to earn a shot in the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in three weeks’ time.

Haybah is one of two horses saddled by David Hayes & Tom Dabernig in the race, and shares the second line of betting with Thurlow at Ladbrokes.com.au, offering odds of $4.40.

Despite this, the two-year-old filly is not nominated for the 2015 Chairman’s Stakes because her trainers weren’t aware of her quality. In fact Haybah has been a surprise hit for the Lindsay Park stable this summer.

“She’s crept up on me a bit,” Hayes told Sky Racing.

“I thought she was a bit off the good ones. Then she stretched the favourite a bit last start.”

Haybah got off to rough start, finishing second last in the Group 3 Emirates Airline Plate (1000m) on debut back in November, but broker her maiden on her four start in the Evergreen Turf Plate (1000m) at Ballarat on January 8.

The filly was then a surprise runner-up in the Group 3 Blue Diamond Fillies Preview (1000m) at Sandown on January 24, finishing just a quarter of a length behind winner Fontiton. She drove along the inside run to be prominent and led by a slender margin into the straight before she fought on all the way home, finding herself nabbed in the closing moments.

She’ll get her chance to nab her first Group victory on Saturday as she jumps midfield from barrier five with Stephen Baster to ride. The filly is one of three to carry the minimum weight of 54kg.

Hayes & Dabernig will also saddle More Than Most in the 2015 Chairman’s Stakes as their mid for a metropolitan premiership increases.

The two-year-old colt will make his debut on Saturday as he jumps from the ideal third barrier with Michael Walker in the saddle.

“He’s probably more a 1200 to 1400-metre horse but the stable has a nice opinion of him,” Hayes said.

He’s the market mover of the odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, seeing his price shorten from $10 to $6.
