Five for Hayes in The Goodwood 2016 Field

Lindsay Park co-trainer David Hayes is out in force at Morphettville Racecourse on Saturday saddling-up five chances in the 2016 The Goodwood field in partnership with his nephew Tom Dabernig.

Neither Hayes nor Dabernig have prepared a previous winner of the $500,000 Group 1 Darley Goodwood (1200m), which drew a full field of 20 this Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival.

They are in it to win it numbers-wise on the weekend however with the shortest-priced of their contingent in The Goodwood betting at being former Perth-trained Sheidel.

“The Goodwood has been one of those races that have just managed to escape me. But this year, with five very good sprinters, all are capable of winning at this level,” Hayes told the media this week.

Drawn in gate 12 for jockey Matthew Neilson, Holy Roman Emperor mare Sheidel won the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield two-back before her brave second to Precious Gem at Morphettville on May 7 in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m).

The Robert Sangster Stakes has produced two of the past four The Goodwood winners with both Black Caviar (2012) and Platelet (2013) completing the double.

The other mare in the mix for Hayes & Dabernig on Saturday is Magnus five-year-old Miss Promiscuity who ran in the same lead-up but lost her rider Luke Nolen in a horror event for the 2012 The Goodwood winning hoop.

Before that she won the Vobis Gold Sprint (1200m) in Melbourne, a race Robbie Griffiths’ Newmarket Handicap winner and fellow The Goodwood hopeful The Quarterback ran third in.

“All five of them are coming in with different form lines but they all represent great chances for the stable,” Hayes said of his The Goodwood crew.

“All the horses are in good shape, including Miss Promiscuity who’s overcome her fall in the Sangster Stakes and she hasn’t missed a beat since that race.”

Drawn wide out in barrier 15 for the stable with Nicholas Hall to ride is Churchill Dancer coming off a string of solid Melbourne runs, the latest of which was behind last year’s The Goodwood winner Flamberge in the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) on March 24 when sixth on March 24.

Rounding out the Hayes & Dabernig-trained The Goodwood runners for 2016 are Fast ‘N’ Rocking (16) and the flying Nicconi three-year-old Faatinah.

“Fast `N’ Rocking is a high-class sprinter and Faatinah is a three-year-old of enormous potential and a last-start winner,” Hayes said.

Faatinah has won his past two on the trot at the Morphettville track, the latest being a quarter-length effort over fellow Saturday rival Sooboog a fortnight back in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m).
