Sydney’s wet weather denied punters the opportunity to see three of Hawkes Racing’s most exciting horses but the stable did not leave the Rosehill meeting empty handed.
Stablemates Masked Crusader and Mount Poppa were withdrawn from their respective assignments for the same reason.
Co-trainer Michael Hawkes said all three were in good order but they did not want them to resume on a wet surface.
“We scratched the three of them because of the wet track. Their chance will come,” Hawkes said.
Hawkes Racing still saddled up two Rosehill runners and both performed well.
Juvenile Montana Flash hit the line nicely for fourth to Zethus in the Canonbury Stakes, while recent recruit Shaik took out the Rosehill Bowling Club Handicap (1400m) with Tommy Berry aboard.
“Tommy rode her perfect. He just stalked them and used the whole straight and she really got through the ground,” Hawkes said.
