Laser Hawk Flying Ahead of 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

Untapped gelding Laser Hawk showed promising signs in a trial at Randwick ahead of his race-day return at the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Laser Hawk impressed Tommy Berry in a trial at Randwick ahead of the Autumn Carnival

The four-year-old blitzed his rivals over 1200m in what was his second trial since returning from the leg injury that ruled him out of the spring.

Rider Tommy Berry was left genuinely excited about his return, saying he hit the line impressively showing no signs of the injury.

“He really attacked the line, he’s got so many gears that horse,” Berry said.

“I asked him to do a bit late but he’s pretty laid back.

“If you didn’t know about the leg injury you wouldn’t even know he had one.”

As is typical of Waterhouse, the schedule for the son of Artie Schiller has not been revealed but it is believed events such as the Group 1 2013 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) and the Group 1 2013 BMW (2400m) could be on his radar.

Both Waterhouse and Waterhouse’s number one jockey Nash Rawiller openly talked up Laser Hawk last autumn and he delivered results that suggested he is a future star.

The lightly-raced gelding has won four of six starts including a victory over Ocean Park in the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas and scored minor placings in the Randwick Guineas and the Australian Derby.

Berry was also left impressed by Group 1 winner Glencadam Gold who finished third in his 1200m trial.

“It was very pleasing, he’s never been a good trialler,” Berry said.

Berry believes Glencadam Gold is destined for big things this year, suggesting his initial Australian campaign was just the beginning for the British import.

“He’s a different horse, what was seen last preparation was only the start of him,” Berry said.

“He’s a lot stronger.”
