Despite the offers flowing in to purchase Western Australian youngster Barakey, his trainer and owners are continuing to refuse to make a sale.

Trainer Jim Taylor was heartbroken after champion sprinter Hay List was taken from his stables after eight runs and given to John McNair in Sydney.

Now Taylor is in possession of Barakey and is not going to let him go without a fight.

The trainer has already labelled the three-year-old as Western Australia’s new Hay List.

Barakey’s owners have declined the numerous offers, including some from keen Hong Kong buyers.

“We’ve had several (offers) but the owners are pretty keen to keep him at the moment,” Taylor said.

“There were a few from Hong Kong and I’m not sure where some of the others were from.”

Aristos Mihalopoulos, who is the co-owner of Barakey, is also Taylor’s stable foreman.

He helped prepare Hay List for his initial eight victories in the state before his transfer.

“Aristos knows what it’s like with Hay List getting taken off us, putting all the hard work into a good horse,” Taylor said.

“These are the sort of good horses we get up at 3am every morning for.”

Taylor is unsure of whether Barakey, who has won both his first two starts, will continue his preparation or go for an early spell.

“We’ll just play it by ear. I haven’t really looked too far ahead,” he said.

“He’s very bright in himself and he’s quick enough to cross from a wide barrier.

“He had a good gallop last Sunday and nearly took off with me.”

Barakey has been nominated to run in the Westspeed 3YO Handicap at Belmont this Saturday and has drawn barrier 10 of 13.

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for
    me on Opera. Superb Blog!
