Hawkspur Wins 2013 Chelmsford Stakes On Way To Cups

Hawkspur has produced a striking victory in the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

The four-year-old won the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes by three and a quarter lengths ahead of stable mate Beaten Up,

Chris Waller was pleased to see Hawkspur step up to win the Group 2 Chelmsford Stakes after placing seventh in the Group 2 Warwick Stakes last start.

“Jim Cassidy’s been bullish the whole way along with this horse,” Waller said.

Waller has set Hawkspur towards the $6.2 million Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse on November 5, 2013.

“We know he’ll stay,” the trainer said.

“It looks like he’s in the race with a good weight too.

“It’s good to have a number of chances in those big races. That’s what we strive for. And he’s on track.”

Waller’s other three runners also produced solid performances in the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes, with Beaten Up placing second after leading the entire race.

“It was good to see him settle when he did get there,” he said.

“Hugh (Bowman) had no option but to do what he did.”

Moriarty placed a gallant fourth in the 2013 Chelmsford Stakes, while Kelinni was strong late.

“shows that he’s on track for the (Metropolitan Handicap). That’s what he’s been set for,” Waller said of Moriarty.

“(And Kelinni) went really good. He’s on track for… the Melbourne Cup.”

Jim Cassidy was the jockey aboard Hawkspur for today’s impressive Chelmsford Stakes win.

“He can stay, he’s got a great will to win, he can manoeuvre in races, he’s athletic. He ticks all the boxes,” he said.

“He handles all types of ground. So far so good. I wouldn’t be swapping him for anything going into the Caulfield Cup (and) Melbourne Cup.”
