Hawkes Racing looks to have unearthed yet another headliner in Master Of Wine.
The imported stayer ploughed through a bottomless track at Rosehill last Saturday and in spite of stepping from 1400 metres to 2000 metres he bolted away with the Group 3 Sky High Stakes.
He’s now the winner of his last four starts for John, Michael and Wayne Hawkes and looks to have the rich autumn staying races well and truly in his sights.
Among the ownership group in Master of Wine, is former leviathan Gold Coast based bookmaker, Laurie Bricknell.
Master Of Wine is a classic example of the stable’s patience and ability to move horses around their Melbourne and Sydney stables.
Master of Wine is a son of Maxios, an unbeaten two-year-old who trained on the be a dual Group One winner.
Maxios is yet another son of one of the world’s great sires in Monsun who leaves stakes winners at an incredible 15% strike rate.
