Stay With Me emerges from Miss Finland's Shadow

10th October 2015

Stay With Me completed a rare double when she emulated the effort of her dam champion Miss Finland by taking out the Thousand Guineas. After the impressive win her co-trainer David Hayes declared her not only the best bred filly in the land but also the best filly. Hayes said Stay With Me won’t follow the rest of Miss Finland’s spring path of 2006 though as he plans to give Stay With Me just one more run for the spring. Miss Finland finished an unlucky sixth in the Cox Plate following her Thousand Guineas but Hayes said Stay With Me won’t be running in the Cox Plate.

“I purposely took that temptation out of play by not even entering her,” Hayes said. Miss Finland won the VRC Oaks after that but Hayes said although it was chance Stay With Me could contest that race it was a longshot. 

Stay With Me is the fourth foal of the superstar Miss Finland whose wins included the Golden Slipper and the VRC Oaks.  Miss Finland was purchased by Badgers Bloodstock for A$450,000 at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.
