Hay Bale couldn’t have galloped any better in his sprint up this morning. He is on the inside in the video above. He was hard held and full of running.
We have changed a lot things we are doing with Hay Bale since his disappointing last race to try to get him back to his best. He has moved yards to be next to horses he really likes and to have more room to move around. We have changed his feed, added more trail rides and river days to his work and shortened up his gallops. He does seem to be happier and he is doing his physio exercises much more freely.
We know Hay Bale can still gallop really well, we just need to see him do it on race day. He is entered to race in the 1000m at Goulburn on Friday.
