Laser Hawk Back From Hiatus

Wednesday, 6th August 2014

Meanwhile, former star 3YO Laser Hawk (Artie Schiller-High Heels, by Canny Lad) will have his first start in 16 months when he lines up in the Gr2 Missile Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday. The now 6YO has not raced since injuring a tendon in last year's George Ryder Stakes but has impressed trainer Joe Pride in three recent barrier trials, the most recent of which saw him finish fourth behind the likes of Rebel Dane and Dear Demi. "He's looked quite sharp in his trials. I've been very pleased with him," Pride said. The Gooree Stud-owned Laser Hawk, who is a half-brother to six-time Gr1 winner Desert War (Desert King), won the 2012 Gr1 Rosehill Guineas defeating Ocean Park and Silent Achiever, and Pride is hoping he can reach that level again by aiming him at the Gr1 Epsom Handicap in the spring.
