Touch Of Genius By Waterhouse Pays Dividends In Hawkesbury Cup

By Mark Brassel

Gai Waterhouse sent Fabrizio 'back to the classroom' and it paid handsome dividends when the five-year-old led all the way to take out the $200,000 Group Livamol Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m).

Waterhouse trains in partnership with Adrian Bott and decided to send Fabrizio around in a 1250m barrier trial at Hawkesbury just five days before the race in an effort to sharpen up the entire.

The move worked a treat as Fabrizio ($9) jumped to the front and was never headed, winning the Cup by just under a length from Moher ($11) and Testashadow ($18) arriving late to finish third.

Fabrizio had resumed with a lacklustre 12th (of 13) to Kellyville Flyer under 61kg on a heavy track at Royal Randwick on April 15.

"We know how good he is and he just didn't seem to spark first-up," Gai Waterhouse said. "After he trialled here on Monday we knew he was back on track and it was a very good front-running ride by Jason [Collett]."

Fabrizio now has the excellent record of eight wins and one placing from 14 starts with nearly $400,000 in prizemoney to his credit.

Tommy Berry was the most successful jockey on the day with a winning treble on Wanna Get a What ($4.40), Lanciato ($5 equal favourite) and So Willie ($10).
