Black Type Debut for Sistonic in Typhoon Tracy Stakes 2015

Lindsay Park’s David Hayes, who trains in partnership with his nephew Tom Dabernig, is hoping the stable’s untapped filly Sistonic can make a successful step up to stakes racing in the 2015 Typhoon Tracy Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday.

It is shaping up as a massive week for Hayes & Dabernig, the team saddling up horses not only at home in a number of autumn features but also represented in Dubai by Tashbeeh in the Listed Meydan Classic (1400m) on Thursday night.

Smart Commands colt Tashbeeh has won his last two starts in Melbourne, most recently over 1400m in a three-year-olds’ handicap at Flemington on January 17 and Hayes is hoping he can take that form up a notch in his international debut.

Hayes cannot wait to see the Sheikh Hamdan-owned colt step out at Dubai and said a good run could warrant him staying on for the World Cup Night in the Group 2 UAE Derby (1900m) or even the Group 1 Dubai Duty Free (1800m) next month.

“I’m really looking forward to it,” Hayes told AAP.

“If he wins (the Meydan Classic) he might get a berth into the Dubai Duty Free and that’s what we’d love to do.”

After watching the Dubai action live on track Hayes will return to Melbourne, hopefully in time to touch down and see his Bel Esprit three-year-old Sistonic strut her stuff in the $150,000 Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on the Friday evening.

“Unfortunately I’m going to be coming back from Dubai and I may not get there,” he said of watching the close Black Caviar relation.

She’s had two starts for two wins to date but is yet to face black type company, something Hayes believes she’s well equipped for after her 1200m Moonee Valley win on January 30.

“She’s going to be pretty hard to beat I think,” he said.

“She’ll run great and would have to be a great chance of getting black type.

“It will be a test and a step up in class but she’s one I’m confident will be able to handle it.”

Also adding to the bumper weekend for Hayes & Dabernig is the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, a race Hayes has enjoyed five previous victories in over the years.

The Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival’s two-year-old feature could have two for the stable in the final field out on Tuesday with both Claudia Jean and Air Apparent likely acceptors.

Not A Single Doubt filly Claudia Jean won her Flemington debut in December before a somewhat disappointing seventh in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 10.

She pays $26 in the pre-field Blue Diamond Stakes odds at to atone for that with an upset on Saturday, the markets led at $2.40 by Robert Smerdon’s undefeated Blue Diamond Fillies Preview & Prelude double winner Fontiton.

Ai Apparent meanwhile is at a shorter $21 quote than her stablemate, the Snitzel filly last seen running just over three lengths away fourth to Fontiton in the Group 3 Prelude over 1100m at Caulfield on February 14.
