02/03/02 Haste Ye Back Eyeing Autumn Riches
0302hasteyeback.jpg (10845 bytes)Leon Corstens hasn't ruled out a start in the Moonee Valley Oaks for Haste Ye Back after that filly scored a fighting win in the $40,500 Auspower Plate (1400m) at Caulfield today.

Corstens said he would nominate the daughter of Danewin for next weekend's Group Two AV Kewney Stakes at Flemington and could look to the Oaks at the Valley.

"We'll see what sort of nominations are received for the Kewney and we may run there and she could be a (Moonee Valley) Oaks chance," Corstens said.

"But looking at the Oaks now is a bit silly as she has to prove she can settle and get the trip first," he added.

0302hasteyeback3.jpg (8483 bytes)The win continued a huge week for leading local jockey Brett Prebble. The multiple Scobie Breasley Trophy winner rode an early double at Flemington on Wednesday before zipping to hospital for the birth of his first child.

"It's been a big week," a proud Prebble said when referring to his newborn son Thomas.

"Mum and baby are going really well, so it's been great," Prebble added.

Haste Ye Back did a great job in the Auspower Plate (1400m) and Prebble had the mare ready to strike at the top of the straight. After hitting the front the filly had to pull out all reserves to hold off the challenge from Lady Mulroy on the inside of the track.

At the post Haste Ye Back held a short head margin over Lady Mulroy, while Miss La La was a further length and a quarter away in third place.
