Posted on May 8th, 2015 by Red Belly Sports

Expensive colt Taaj will make his debut for the Hawkes stable, in Saturday’s William Hill Sporting Chance Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill.

 

The 2-year-old son of Street Cry was purchased for $1.5 million dollars as a yearling for His Excellency Nasser Lootah and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum.

 

“He is a nice horse that has done everything right and is ready to go to the races,” co-trainer Michael Hawkes told Fairfax Media.

 

“He had a trial and is getting better all the time.

 

“At our place it doesn’t matter if they are having their first start or won 17 [like stable star Our Boy Malachi], we want them to show their best.”

 

Taaj is currently $14 with www.tab.com.au
