David Hayes is excited about the prospect of two of his sons saddling a Group One Hong Kong Mile runner at Sha Tin later this year, but before that Lindsay Park’s modern-day patriarch hopes Allgreektome wins when he faces Class Three company for the first time at Happy Valley on Wednesday.
On Saturday, Mr Brightside won Australia’s only fan-voted race, the A$5 million (HK$26.25 million) All-Star Mile, at Moonee Valley under Hong Kong-based jockey Luke Currie, and Hayes says the galloper’s trainers, Ben and JD, intend to set him for the 1,600m component of Sha Tin’s international day.
“He’s going to defend his title in the [Group One] Doncaster Mile [next month], and the boys are going to target the international races in December,” Hayes said regarding Mr Brightside’s short- and long-term aims. “It’ll be nice to see him up here, hopefully.”
Rated 64 following one win and two seconds from his first five assignments, Allgreektome has a long way to go if he is going to contest an elite-level event, but Hayes believes his last-start victor’s star is rising ahead of Wednesday’s Class Three Hollywood Handicap (1,200m) in which 500-time Hong Kong winner Vincent Ho Chak-yiu steers him from barrier 10.
