Harada Bay Deserves Tattersall’s Mile Win

Ontrack ThoroughbredsGrant Morgan said no horse deserved to win the 2016 Tattersall’s Mile at Doomben Racecourse this weekend more than his syndicate’s runner Harada Bay.

To date the Haradasun six-year-old, prepared at Eagle Farm by John & Chris Meagher, has won eight of his 45 starts but the galloper is yet to secure a stakes victory.

Morgan said that was something connections hoped to change in Saturday’s $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Mile Handicap (1600m) as the 45-start veteran approached the half-a-million-dollar mark in earnings.

“He has won eight races and been minor-placed 16 times. If he can win on Saturday it will take him closer to the $500,000 mark in prize money,” Morgan told AAP.

“I would really like to see him win a stakes race. If any horse deserves the win it is Harada Bay.”

The syndicate has enjoyed four wins so far with the Meaghers since the start of the month with Harada Bay, Cruising Speed, Savanna Armour and Mimi Amara.

They are best known however for their success with the former Chris Waller-trained Group 1 winner and Diamond Jubilee runner-up in England Brazen Beau.

Harada Bay has won two of his past three starts, both at Doomben, where he returns for the 19th time on the weekend.

His record at the track consists of four wins, three seconds and five thirds with his latest victory coming on July 9 over 1630m when beating home the Ciaron Maher-trained Victorian visitor Akavoroun in the handicap clash.

Harada Bay faces a similar field of rivals in the Tattesall’s Mile on the back of that win coming up against both Akavoroun and third-placegetter in the same lead-up Lauterbrunnen from the Robert Heathcote stables.

Last time out Harada Bay carried 56.5kg to victory and for Saturday’s Black-Type he drops to 55.5kg with jockey Luke Dittman retaining the ride.

He needs to improve though drawn wide for the Tattersall’s Mile out in gate 10 of 11 and pays $6.50 in the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, the barrier a concern for Morgan.

“The key to his recent wins at Doomben seemed to be him drawing a good barrier. On Saturday he hasn’t,” he admitted.

It is a tight Tattersall’s Mile betting market this winter with a further five single-figure hopefuls including the firming favourite Flamboyer ($4) coming off back-to-back wins and drawn the inside alley.

Akavoroun has the outside barrier and occupies the third line of betting at $5.50 dropping back from 59kg last start to 56kg, just behind the aforementioned Lauterbrunnen ($5) who has Jim Byrne back in the saddle.
