Play To Win Takes Hayes Memorial Cup
Ill-fated Arrowfield Stud sire Snippets (Lunchtime-Easy Date, by Grand Chaudiere) added another black-type success when consistent 5YO gelding Play To Win (Snippets-Badinov's Babe, by Twig Moss) made it 3 wins from his last 4 starts with a short-head victory in the $50,000 Listed C.S.Hayes Memorial Cup (1600m) at Morphettville. Play To Win (ridden by Matthew Neilson for trainer Mark Kavanagh) defeated 4YO mare Vintner (Hennessy-Dane Vintage, by Danzero) & fellow 5YO gelding Cannyopra (Canny Lad-Salisopra, by Three Legs). Play To Win (a $20,000 yearling at the 2002 Inglis Sires Produce Sale) now has 9 wins & 4 placings in 21 starts for $189,000 prize-money.
