Thursday, 21st July 2011

Trainer John Hawkes confirmed 4YO gelding Maluckyday (Zabeel-Natalie Wood, by Yachtie) “is back in work with the Melbourne Cup his primary mission” reported The Daily Telegraph. Maluckyday was a fast-finishing runner-up behind Americain in last year’s Melbourne Cup & Hawkes (who trains in partnership with his sons Wayne & Michael) confirmed: “He's coming along nicely, but won't be ready to race until the end of next month. We've got one aim – the Melbourne Cup) - with him this Spring. I'm not too worried about his program just yet, because you have to take into account the weather, the state of the tracks, all those things. He will have to run in weight-for-age races & we know he handles the Melbourne way of going, so we know we can send him down there (from Sydney) when it suits us.”
