4 Mar 2019 - NEWSASCOT INTRODUCES ROYAL ASCOT TRIALS DAY
Redkirk Warrior team confident of a big run
Posted in: Royal Ascot News
The globetrotting seven-year-old originally started his career in Britain with William Haggas, before eventually landing in Australia via a sting in Hong Kong, where he’s trained by father-and-son team Ben and David Hayes and Tom Dabernig.
He has found his niche as a sprinter, putting in a career-best to win the Grade One Newmarket Handicap at Flemington, and Hayes is hopeful he can put in a bold bid on Saturday.
He said: “He’s a lovely, relaxed horse and he’s very easy to deal with. I’ve been training just over two years, and he’s by far the best horse I’ve ever trained.
“He comes here a lovely, fresh horse. When he’s had 100 days-plus off, he’s got a great record, so we’re not bothered about him being fresh.
“It just depends how he handles the day, but he’s definitely got the ability to win.”
Redkirk Warrior is currently a 4/1 chance for the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
