Taylor Declares Unbeaten Barakey "The New Hay List"
Perth trainer Jim Taylor (who prepared Hay List to win his initial 8 starts, before being moved east to NSW trainer John McNair) declared unbeaten 3YO gelding Barakey (Key Business-Dance Hi, by Ideal Planet) will be the next star of WA racing, after he clocked 57.56sec (the last 600m in 33.36sec) to cruise home by 3-lengths over 1000m at Belmont Park. A fortnight ago, Barakey similarly cruised home by 4.5-lengths on debut over 1000m at the same track & following his 2nd victory, Taylor declared “the sky's the limit” & told The West Australian: “He's pretty special. It would have been interesting to see how quick he could have gone. We've only had one better than him before, Hay List, and this bloke's going that way. I think this horse is going to go a long way. He looked like he had 6 or 8 lengths up his sleeve to me.”
