Tuskegee Hawk (Black Hawk – Cosi Fan Tutte, by Snippets) became the eighth individual Stakes winnerfor former Japanese star Black Hawk (Nureyev – Silver Lane, by Silver Hawk).
The three-year-old was part of Black Hawk’s final Australian crop sired at Eliza Park Stud in Victoria. The Len Treloar-trained filly lived up to the reputation of Black Hawk’s progeny when she relished a wet track to score convincingly.
“The winter carnival staying races next year will be ideal for her but what we do in the meantime remains to be seen,” Tuskegee Hawk’s trainer Len Treloar said.
“I was in Singapore when I saw this filly was available for sale as a yearling and I bought her after my son Russell gave her a good report.
“But she suffered from travel sickness on the way up from Victoria and we had to nurse her back to health.”
The victory was Tuskegee Hawk’s fourth from nine starts and took her prizemoney tally to more than $97,000.
