Hawks Bay Wins 2011 Darwin Cup

August 2nd, 2011

Hawks Bay has finally won the 2011 Darwin Cup yesterday after posting close seconds in his past two attempts.

The six-year-old gelding won the $175,000 Darwin Cup by a comfortable three lengths ahead of stablemate Palmyra Boy and third place-getter Blackbriar.

Hawks Bay was ridden by top jockey Steven Arnold, who made his move aboard the gelding at the 400 metre mark.

“He was going that well on the turn I just had to count to 10 before I went as he was carrying 62kg,” Arnold said.

“I’ve spent a lot of time in the Territory so it’s like coming home to me.”

Hawks Bay’s trainer, Neil Dyer, was overcome with emotion after the spectacular horse racing win.

“It’s been a long time coming, but it’s been worth waiting for,” Dyer said.

“I was confident in the run with the way he was travelling for Steve.”
