Punters keen to hear Lindsay Park Song in Caulfield opener

PUNTERS have launched an early move on a Lindsay Park two-year-old in the opening race of Saturday’s Caulfield meeting, who was purchased by Triple Crown Syndications for $20,000 from the Inglis Classic Sale.

Trainers David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will unveil That Song in the Ladbrokes Back Yourself Plate (1100m). Racenet’s Odds Comparison shows That Song opened at $7.50 on Wednesday but the colt is now as short as $4.20.

Fluctuations show bookies turned That Song’s quote from $7.40 to $4.60 but punter interest has pushed his price into $4.20.

The son of Your Song has had jumpouts at Flemington and Werribee leading up to his debut in Saturday’s $100,000 contest. David Hayes said That Song’s effort in the Werribee jumpout on Monday convinced the team to give him a crack at the Caulfield race.

“He’s a nice horse that trialled quietly at Werribee,” Hayes said in Lindsay Park’s weekly roundup on Saturday’s runners.

“He had more to offer and I thought was worth a try in a competitive little race.”
