Luck Deserts Lindsay Park at Diamond Draw
Meanwhile, the Lindsay Park team of David & Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig had mixed fortunes at yesterday's Blue Diamond barrier draw with all six of its runners drawing gate eight or wider. The stable will be represented by race favourite Catchy (13), along with Formality (12), Tulip (8), Wait For No One (10), Will's Bid (16), and Muraahib (15). "Formality and Tulip drew quite well out in the middle. Catchy drew out a bit but maybe a big striding filly like her can go back...often the Blue Diamond can suit a horse that comes late and down the middle," Dabernig told Racing.com. "Wait For No One does have really good speed, so barrier ten is not too bad, but Muraahib is probably going to have to go back from there, as will Will's Bid who drew out wide too." He added: "But we have strength in numbers. It should be a great race, I think the two-year-olds are a pretty even bunch this year." Dabernig credited Lindsay Park's state-of-the-art training facility for the strength of its juvenile string. "We have a great crop of two-year-olds but we've got a facility that keeps them sound...education is a huge part of it," he said.
