Full brother to Group One winner HAWKSPUR.
After watching all DEVIL HAWK’S runs it is evident he only gives 100% when he is within striking distance on the turn and can see open space and clear running in front of him.
He won the Group 3 1600m Spring Stakes as a 3yo after seeing clear running at the top of the straight and proved too tough on the line.
His win 3 starts back over 2200m was impressive in the small field where he was in touch on the turn and once had clear running proved far to good.
Devil Hawk’s run in the Group One 2000m Champion Stakes was also quality. Off a slow tempo he was shuffled rearward and made a move at the 750m mark. In the blink of an eye he circled the field and was leading at the 600m and was left exposed, having to do too much in the straight yet only beaten 3.7L.
His 3 wins from 16 starts have all been at Metro / Group 3 level and have all been in small fields which gives great insight into how he needs to be ridden to see him in the winners stall more often.
DEVIL HAWK is definitely a horse with enormous upside who will suit racing in all regions.
