As well as being responsible for importing Ada Hunter The Von was similarly responsible, with David Hains, for importing Love Song.

Thanks.   emthup

David Haines gets a mention on page 264 of Gerard Whateley's book unfortunately there is no mention of the role The Von played but I do take your word for it. Thanks.

Deep Field on song for Listed City Tattersall’s Club Sprint as new recruit Our Boy Malachi steps out

AS DEEP Field continued to crank up his preparations ahead of his first Stakes mission, new stablemate Our Boy Malachi made his first public appearance in Sydney.

Team Hawkes are sure to dominate headlines in the coming days as Deep Field shoots for four straight career wins in Saturday’s Listed City Tattersall’s Club Sprint (1100m) at Randwick.

He completed his main piece of work at Rosehill early Tuesday, and co-trainer Michael Hawkes couldn’t fault the speedster who has beaten his rivals by a combined 20 lengths.

But Hawkes was just as happy with the trial of new recruit Our Boy Malachi, the Rockhampton rocket who has racked up 13 wins from 15 starts north of the border.

Jockey James McDonald gave Our Boy Malachi an easy time when third in his 900m heat, and Team Hawkes are likely to kick him off at Canterbury this month.

He can motor this one and with the Hawkes polish anything is possible.

Regardless of where he's from a horse with that record has to be of above average ability.

What a nice win. Zaratone is no slouch over the short course but he always had his measure - daylight third.

16 starts for 14 wins. Wonder where to now? Some nice black type sprints coming up in a month or so - Razor Sharp & Carrington - but a few weeks before those.

He has continued to improve in Sydney...probably done him the world of good......now I see they are thinking he could be Stradbroke material ...has won at 1300 so 1350 around Doomben ..assuming EF will still be out...would be feasible. ....or as George Costanza might say......when asking his secretary if she knew what he was thinking 'Is it do able?'and to which she replied "definitely do able" and they tore their clothes off and disappeared behind the desk Giddy Up. :beer:

Don't know if that's in sarcasm ? But of course he has

It's fantastic when smaller trainers get very good horses - but it's the horses ability is overshadowed by how we over attribute the success to the trainer and their "connection" and intimate knowledge of the horse - guess "The Cleaner" would be an example

"Feel Good Story" and all - On that subject - I still can't understand what goes on in HK - where some owner's will take a recent G1 winner and send it to someone else for the next season - to help out other trainers - Good Baba etc

Seal, I have no knowledge as to how the previous trainer trains so I didn't want to make that leap. Maybe the horse is progressive within himself and would be doing the same for the old trainer if given the chance

Obviously a debate that cannot have a winner but . .

The number of North Qld trainers who have deserted the sinking ship that is NQ racing, and made a success of it in the Great(?) South-East, franks the 'form' of the 'good' country trainer

Many other good country trainers remain in the 'bush' because of their circumstances

Wise old jungle saying: "Good horses make good trainers!"

He's dropped a fair bit in class as well, is racing in Sydney now.

A Coome rode him 13 times for 12 wins so hard to be critical on those stats.

Only other defeat for OBM was his debut 3 and a half years ago!! when btn by 4L.

Not critical of his 12 wins EZ, critical of his ride that handed him his second defeat.

He rode him like a motorbike, rode him very hard out of the gates and did way to much work from memory.

The run was exceptional IMO and ridden more patiently he would have only tasted defeat the once.

What an imposing record this bloke is building.

Qld bound with the Straddie his main target.
Would expect that Doomben will suit him down to the ground.

First time I have watched this fellow was yesterday.

Has the great advantage of being able to seemingly cruise to the turn under a hold while still being fast enough to be on the speed. Not many can do that.

Will be fun watching him in brisbane if that is where he goes.

Interestingly David Haines had a debut winner in Melbourne yesterday, you don't here much of him these days.

Another good win. Stepped up & won again!
Maybe he's forgotten how to lose?   :huh:
