Guineas Loses Fast 'N' Rocking

Wednesday, 2nd October 2013

Trainer David Hayes has slightly muddied the upcoming Gr1 Caulfield Guineas by deciding not to run exciting sophomore colt Fast 'N' Rocking. According to racingnetwork.com.au, the son of Fastnet Rock will, instead, be reserved for the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on the major Victoria Derby Day card. Hayes explained his decision is based on Fast 'N' Rocking having "failed three times in his life, twice at 1400m and once at a mile", a form line suggesting that the colt is best suited at sprint distances. Long John remains pre-post favourite ahead of Prince Harada.
