Outstanding Nominations For Hawkesbury's Stand-Alone Saturday

Hawkesbury Race Club chief executive Greg Rudolph is thrilled with nominations for his club’s biggest day of the year on Saturday. A total of 160 nominations has been received for the 12th anniversary of the stand-alone meeting, which carries metropolitan status.

Hawkesbury’s first stand-alone program was run in 2006 on exactly the same date (April 29): “The nominations are terrific, with all the leading stables represented and also a number from interstate,” Rudolph said. “It augurs well for another fantastic meeting on Saturday.”

The Hawkesbury entry list includes 68 for the club’s three Group 3 features – the $200,000 Livamol Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m), $200,000 Richmond Club Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) and $175,000 Godolphin Crown (1300m). Twenty horses have been entered for the Cup, 19 for the Guineas and 28 for the Crown.

Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller, successful in last year’s Cup with Amovatio, has nominated Beyond Thankful, Marenostro and Vanbrugh for this year’s race. Waller notched a treble at last year’s meeting, his other winners being Hipparchus and Mackintosh.

John O’Shea has nominated Spectroscope, Duca Valentinois, Havana Cooler and Moher. Local Cup nominations are recent Randwick winner KellyvilleFlyer and Reiby The Red (Jason Attard), Famous Seamus (Noel Mayfield-Smith) and Auvray (Richard Freedman).

Gosford trainer Fred Cowell finished second last year with Mighty Lucky, and is hoping to go one better this time. Randwick co-trainers Peter and Paul Snowden won last year’s Godolphin Crown with Nancy, and have entered Artistry, Brigadoon Rise and Serene Majesty for this year’s renewal.

Gerald Ryan captured last year’s Guineas with Spill The Beans, and is relying on Star Of Monsoon to clinch back-to-back victories in the feature event for three-year-olds. Local Guineas entries are Flemington spring carnival winner Spright (Garry Frazer), another recent Randwick winner Generalissimo (Garry White) and Provincial Championships heat winner Shazee Lee (Scott Singleton).
