Statue of Liberty’s sprinting sensation, Hay List (below), is poised to follow in the hoofsteps of his paternal sibling, Mic Mac, by making a huge name for himself on the eastern seaboard.
The winner of his first eight starts before running midfield in the Colonel Reeves Stakes-G3 last November, Hay List has just shifted from the Perth stable of Jim Taylor to John McNair’s set up on NSW’s Central Coast.
(McNair is also the trainer of evergreen sprinter, Mustard – a multiple Group winner who, as a 12YO, had his 105th career start at Rosehill on 27 February, finishing third).
Word on the street is that Hay List is being targeted for the $300,000 Group One The Galaxy at Randwick on 17 April, a race won three years ago by Eliza Park based Magnus.
Meanwhile, Statue of Liberty has been firing on all cylinders of late with Solchow winning at Caulfield in late February (fourth city win) before running a game third in the JRA Stakes-LR, while the Storm Cat stallion also notched up a double in both hemispheres on Sunday with Statue of Glory (a half brother to 2YO stakes winner Rossa Glory) winning in South Australia, while Call Me Liberty romped home in Germany for trainer Christian Freiherr von der Recke (gotta love the name!).
