Three-year-old Shaf will be racing for a trip to Dubai when he lines-up at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

The David Hayes and Tom Dabernig trained colt is one of four gallopers tentatively booked for a trip to the United Arab Emirates, but only one is guaranteed.

Hayes said Tashbeeh had booked himself a trip with his victory at Flemington last Saturday and Shaf may join him with victory in the Schweppes Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

“It looks like I’ve got to go to Dubai a few times,” Hayes said.

“I’ve got four that I’ve entered on the plane but at this stage I’ll only be sending one.

“If Shaf wins easily on the weekend we may consider sending him but he’s got a pretty hard race to win.”

Hayes said it was exciting to get the call up from Sheikh Hamdan to have Australian representation at the Dubai World Cup carnival.

Sheikh Hamdan has been a long time supporter of Hayes and supplied Lindsay Park with imported Melbourne Cup winners At Talaq and Jeune, Caulfield Cup winners Fraar and Tawqeet along with 1989 Cox Plate winner Almaarad.

Sheikh Hamdan has also tasted success in some of Australia’s other big races with Australian and New Zealand bred gallopers including Zabeel in the Australian Guineas, Mahaasin and Reaan in the Blue Diamond Stakes and Rewaaya in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes to name just a few.

Tashbeeh is likely to contest the Listed Meydan Classic on February 26 and then on to a possible start in the US$2 million Dubai Derby on World Cup night, March 28 with Hayes unsure whether Tashbeeh will return to Australia after racing in Dubai.

“I thought Tashbeeh was looking like an Australian Guineas horse but he’ll do well in Dubai,” Hayes said.

“We’ll see what the lay of the land is but he puts plenty in my stable so it will be nice to have a representative from here to race over in Dubai.”
