Blinkers back on Long Leaf for Golden Rose

David Hayes is hoping the addition of blinkers and a dry track will bring out the best in Long Leaf (Fastnet Rock) in the Golden Rose at Rosehill. Long Leaf will be Lindsay Park's sole representative in the Group One race over 1400m for three-year-old's on Saturday. After running on strongly over 1100m at Caulfield on August 18, Long Leaf was switched to Sydney to contest the Run To The Rose (1200m) on September 8. A heavy track thwarted his chances with the colt finishing eighth of the 11 runne...

Long Leaf lines up in Vain Stakes

Lindsay Park Racing’s Long Leaf (Fastnet Rock) will make his three-year-old debut in Saturday's Gr.3 Vain Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield. Long Leaf hasn't raced since finishing ninth in the Gr.1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in April. Co-trainer Ben Hayes said Long Leaf's early spring form would determine whether the colt extends out in trip or is kept for shorter races. "We'll either go towards the Caulfield Guineas or keep him fresh for the Coolmore Stud Stakes," Hayes said. "He hasn't p...
