Hayes lifts Bayliss ban

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT RACING -

DAVID Hayes has ended his sta­ble’s in-house sus­pen­sion of Re­gan Bayliss and he will re­unite with straight track spe­cial­ist Red­kirk War­rior in the Black Caviar Light­ning Stakes (1000m) at Flem­ing­ton on Satur­day.

“Re­gan is still rid­ing for me but I gave him a break for a month as I wasn’t happy with the way he was rid­ing for us,” Hayes said.

“He wasn’t rid­ing to sta­ble rules so we gave him a bit of a break. He’s back rid­ing for us though now.”

Bayliss last rode for the Hayes-Dabernig team at Caulfield on Jan­uary 27 when he fin­ished ninth on Velox. Be­fore that his last rides for them were on Jan­uary 8.

Bayliss will part­ner Red­kirk War­rior ($11), a horse he’s had great suc­cess with win­ning the Group 1 New­mar­ket Hand­i­cap and the Bob­bie Lewis Stakes down the Flem­ing­ton straight.

Redzel is the $1.80 Light­ning favourite with Lad­brokes af­ter draw­ing bar­rier one.
