Jacquinot Bay Veteran PB Lawrence Stakes Entry

The sole nominee for the Lindsay Park operation in Saturday’s 2016 PB Lawrence Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse will be veteran galloper Jacquinot Bay.

One of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival’s early star lead-up races, the weight-for-age $200,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) headlines the Caulfield race card this weekend.

David Hayes & Tom Dabernig, who recently added Hayes’ son Ben to their training team, will have just the one entry with nine-year-old Galileo gelding Jacquinot Bay set to run.

A winner of 13 of his 46 career starts, the galloper has been in good form against easier rivals over a consistent winter campaign that shows he still holds a zest for racing.

He won back-to-back events at Flemington over 1400m in June, before things went amiss in the Listed Winter Championship Final (1600m) when he crossed eighth to Iggimacool in the July 9 feature at the same track.

This weekend he’ll head to Caulfield for the first time since his seventh behind Lidari when beaten only two lengths last Boxing Day in the Listed Lord Stakes (1700m), and Hayes is quietly confident.

The horse has a strong first-up record of three wins and a second from six resuming runs to date that Hayes is hoping he can add to with a top three run on the weekend fresh.

“He’s really going well,” Hayes told AAP.

“I think a fresh, fit horse coming off some winter racing is not bad form for this sort of race.”

The PB Lawrence Stakes is set to attract its usual top class list of nominees with the likes of Lord Of The Sky and The Cleaner in the mix.

Robbie Laing’s six-year-old Danrich entire Lord Of The Sky will be chasing back-to-back Group wins at the track after his smart effort in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) on July 30.

The Cleaner was a surprise acceptor for the Bletchingly, but was scratched out by his new trainer Peter Gelagotis and saved instead for his original first-up target of the PB Lawrence.

The former Tasmanian-trained Savoire Vivre nine-year-old hasn’t raced since early December last year at home when seventh of eight runners behind Admiral in the Listed Conquering Stakes (1400m) at Launceston.

He has plenty of strong Victorian form he is looking to emulate this season including his smart second when beaten a nostril flare by Mourinho in last year’s PB Lawrence Stakes.

That led to a successful title defence in Moonee Valley’s Group 2 Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (1600m), a mile feature also on his spring agenda for September 3 this year.

The full PB Lawrence Stakes nominations are set for release shortly, but in the meantime why not treat yourself to up to $500 in bonus bets by opening a new account with Ladbrokes.com.au, depositing and quoting the code BETBONUS!
