Devil Hawk Wins Gr3 Spring Stakes
At Newcastle in the NSW Hunter, Chatswood Stud's Gr3-winning stallion Purrealist (Tale Of The Cat-Surrealist, by Kenny's Best Pal) added a Group success when 2YO colt Devil Hawk (Purrealist-Mollyhawk, by Catbird) scored by 0.2-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $125,000 Gr3 Spring Stakes (1600m) for 3YOs, over 3YO geldings Tatoosh (Beneteau-Miss Columbus, by Spinning World) & Gold Ambition (Savabeel-Senorita Lucy, by Senor Pete). This was the first stakes victory for Devil Hawk who took his record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 6 starts for $104,625 earnings. Devil Hawk, who is a full-brother to Gr1 Queensland Derby winner Hawkspur, is likely to heads towards next month's Gr1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) at Randwick.
