Local Trainer Lands Biggest Career Win In Hawkesbury Guineas

By Mark Brassel

Local trainer Scott Singleton claimed his biggest career win in front of his home crowd when Shazee Lee powered home to win the $200,000 Group 3 Blacktown Workers Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m).

The mare, sent out as one of the roughies at $51, finished hard to win by a neck from Prompt Response ($11) with Salsonic ($26) flashing home for third a nose away.

"This is very special as Hawkesbury has been my home," Singleton said. "I remember being a five-year-old and hanging around the bull ring here so I go back a fair way," the 33-year-old said.

"This mare can run some very fast sectionals and it was a perfect ride by Jay [Ford] to be in the position to let rip at the 200m."

Shazee Lee had won a qualifier of the Provincial Championships before running seventh in the Final at Royal Randwick.

"She copped a check in the race and wasn't suited on the heavy ground; the dry track today was much more up her alley," Singleton said.

Shazee Lee is owned by her breeder, Dr Max Kowalczuk, who has owned many horses over a long period of time.
