Romance Excites Hayes For Spring Carnival
David Hayes is predicting a big spring carnival for new stable acquisition Rising Romance (Ekraar-Post Romance) who resumes in the Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday, reports NZ Racing Desk. "I am very excited about this mare. We have put her in fresh and we feel the Memsie is the perfect race for her to kick off in," Hayes said. "She will be ridden patiently from the barrier  and if the tempo is fast enough I expect her to finish strongly. I am very, very excited about her spring prospects." Rising Romance was previously prepared by Kiwi trainer Donna Logan who guided her to 5 wins from 18 starts, including a victory in 2014's Gr1 Australian Oaks (see below) and a second placing in last year's Gr1 Caulfield Cup.
