Gainesway grad Redding Colliery gets SW at Aqueduct


Sunday, January 29, 2012 |

Redding Colliery went gate to wire in the $75,000 Evening Attire S. at Aqueduct on Jan. 28 to give the Gainesway-bred sales grad his fourth career stakes win. Gainesway consigned Redding Colliery to the 2007 Keeneland September Yearling sale, where he brought a winning bid of $170,000.

Redding Colliery went straight to the lead under jockey Alan Garcia and set comfortable fractions of :23.87 and :47.81, with the 4-5 favorite I Want Revenge in close pursuit. Tested at top of the stretch by his pursuer, Redding Colliery pushed back along the inside and stretched the his lead to a margin of two lengths at the wire to get the 1 1/16 miles in 1:43.05.

Bred in Kentucky, the gray/roan 6-year-old now boasts a record of 7-3-3 from 20 starts, earning $759,385. His stakes wins include the Grade 2 Hawthorne Gold Cup and Grade 3 Lone Star Park H. He is owned by Mrs. Fitriani Hay and trained by Kiaran McLaughlin.

"The Hay family has been so patient with this horse," said Artie Magnuson, assistant to McLaughlin. "They get all the credit for just letting us take our time. I'm so happy for them. Kiaran might want to take him to Florida; it's whatever Kiaran and the Hay family decides."

Redding Colliery is one of five stakes-winning Gainesway sales graduates already in 2012.
