Hiflyer Ready for Australian Campaign
Trainer Peter Lock says how Hiflyer performs on his Australian debut in the Listed Winter Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday week will determine the remainder of his campaign, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He's going over to Sydney on Monday night and will be stabled at Randwick with Peter Robl. He's got great facilities and he can ride him in work as well," said Lock. "It depends what happens in his first race, that will tell the story. He could come back and get ready for the Tarzino Trophy [Gr1] at Hawke's Bay or if he's going really well over there he may have another run." Lock added: "If we left him there a bit longer we would bypass the first day at Hawke's Bay and come back for the mile (the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate) on the second day." Bred and part-owned by Sir Patrick and Lady Hogan, Hiflyer is by Tavistock out of the Stravinsky mare Lady Firebird and hails from the outstanding female family of champion Australian racehorse Might And Power and 4-time Gr1 winning filly Mosheen.
