Hawwaam – Sun Met On Cards

Three-way clash of the century!

Mike de Kock said he was taking a one to two year view on getting his pending training operation in Australia going and thus his star horse Hawwaam would be racing in South Africa for the whole of this season.

De Kock commenting on Hawwaam’s starting woes said, “He is fine in the pens, in my opinion he just doesn’t need a handler, he becomes unsettled when they are standing above him.”

Gold Circle reports that Hawwaam will thus be on course for the three-way clash of the century in next year’s Sun Met.

The country’s three big guns, Do It Again, Rainbow Bridge and Hawwaam are due to do battle in that race.

They were set to face each other in the Vodacom Durban July last month in an Equus Horse Of The Year decider.

However, Hawwaam had to be scratched after charging the gate and hurting himself.

Fortunately, the lameness was temporary and he was sound by the time he had returned to the parade ring.

Do It Again went on to beat Rainbow Bridge by 0,40 lengths despite giving him half-a-kilogram, thus exacting revenge for his 0,75 length defeat in the weight for age Sun Met.

De Kock still has to have stables built in Australia, work through the red tape of visa requirements and send staff over for work experience.

He said Hawwaam would obviously be a candidate to run for him over there when things were in place but it would all depend on the instructions of his owner Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

    Here we go again with Hawwaam. I’m telling you guys now,this horse will have the prep runs and then all of a sudden he will get sand in his eye and wont run the met. Then Barahin and Buffalo Bill Cody will be talked up and run at the back end of the field. Plz I’ve heard this story before. Take this horse and go to Australia already. Do it again will smack him so hard his owners and trainer would feel it.

    This is laughable, id say what you saying has merit had hawaam not been a multiple group 1 winner. Let us see who is the best in the land, at proper weight for age terms… all roads lead to the met. Its worth noting that I am a huge do it again fan. To me he is the best thing since pocket power.

    My sentiments exactly bring it on the class act n clash of the decade. Rainbow bridge in cape twn 2000m is in a class of his own…. No hanging into the rail…. Race over hes a top horse at kenilworth.

  7. Frankie says:

    Frankie Zackey…MDK will win his 9th Trainer’s Title….Cecil that should answer many questions…I’m not in the mood to read all the bullshit comments what if if if if f…k the ifs

  8. Deon says:

    Honestlty speaking I think he will be beaten again because the jockeys of South Africa bring these champions down.The past jockeys rode our class horses like champions.I failed in south Africa when it comes to racing.
