Hayes Pair Get Peach San Domenico Draws
In what looms as a mouth-watering early season sprint clash in this Saturday's Gr3 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill Gardens, fate has fallen the way of the Hayes training team with both runners drawing close to the paint. Having bypassed a clash with equally high profile stablemates Formality, who took out last weekend's Gr3 Silver Shadow and Catchy, who just missed on her return in the Gr3 Quezette, Tulip has drawn barrier 1 in a hotly contested San Domenico with barn mate Madeenaty in close quarters from barrier 3. In stark contrast, likely pre-post favourite Pariah has been dealt no cards and will have to be at his Canonbury Stakes best to weave a passage from 10. Team Snowden stablemate and high rater Taking Aim suffered a similar fate and will have to plot a course from barrier 7 in the ten horse field. Meanwhile, highly touted Not A Single Doubt colt Condor Heroes has drawn an equally demanding barrier 9. Tulip appears to be primed for a first up tilt at the San Domenico having split Formality and Catchy in a recent Cranbourne trial and will be looking to follow in the footprints of Star Turn, Snitzerland and Foxwedge who all captured the race in recent years.
