Laser Hawk Aimed at 2012 Randwick Guineas – Race Preview

February 28th, 2012

Laser Hawk has earned himself a start in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas at Randwick Racecourse on March 17, 2012, after winning his first-up start last weekend.

The three-year-old-gelding made it three wins from three starts in the $70,000 Quakers Inn 3YO Handicap at Rosehill last Saturday.

Gooree Stud manager, Andrew Baddock was thrilled with his most recent performance.

“He was first up today at 1500m and with any other trainer you would have your heart in your mouth but when Gai (Waterhouse) says they are fit enough to win, she is usually right,” Baddock said after the race.

“We’ve got a big opinion of Laser Hawk and he might be our Australian Derby horse.”

Laser Hawk is the half-brother to impressive galloper Desert War.

“This horse has a big motor – just like Desert War,” Baddock said.

“Laser Hawk is a big lump of three-year-old. Not quite as big as Desert War, but not many horses are.

“If he’s half as good as his half-brother, then we will be happy.”

Jockey Jim Cassidy rode Laser Hawk to his most recent victory.

“He’s a very promising horse,” Cassidy said.

“This was only his third start, his first in Saturday city class, and he has won well.

“The further he goes, the better he will be; he has ‘mile-and-a-half’ written all over him.”
