Hawkspur, with Jim Cassidy in the saddle was just nutted for third place by Sincero behind Group 1 winners Streama and Scared Falls in the 900m trial after racing on the pace.

Leading Sydney trainer Chris Waller took Hawkspur to Brisbane for the winter following some fair Sydney Autumn Carnival form and the then three year old improved tremendously as the his race distances were increased.

Hawkspur was unbeaten from three starts in the Sunshine State and made it a hat trick of wins in the Group 1 $500,000 Channel Seven Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8.

The promising stayer had previous won the Group 3 $125,000 Mittys Rough Habit Plate (2100m) at Eagle Farm and the Group 3 $150,000 Mullins Lawyers Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) at Doomben in the lead up to the Derby.

Hawkspur’s Spring carnival program will be aimed towards the Group 1 $400,000 McGrath Estate Agents Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on October 5.

Group 1 winning stablemates Shoot Out and Foreteller didn’t finish far off the pace in fourth and fifth spots with both going to the line under double wraps.

Shoot Out, a winner of five Group 1 races will resume in the Group 2 $175,000 Warwick Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on August 24.

While Foreteller will concentrate on a Melbourne Spring Carnival campaign and will target the Group 1 $1m Longines Mackinnon Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on November 2 after finishing fifth to Glass Harmonium in 2011.

I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!|
