15/06/02 I Scream Provides Hawkes With Sandown Double
0615iscream.jpg (10826 bytes)The Hawkes stable wrapped up an early double at Sandown when Flavour’s half brother I Scream scored an impressive win on debut in the Proud Miss Super Vobis Handicap (1000m) this afternoon.

Out of the handy performing mare Ice Cream Sundae, I Scream, a gelding by Quest for Fame came from well back in the field for an eye catching win.

Wayne Hawkes, the Melbourne foreman for his Sydney based training father John, said the gelding had shown connections some ability in his early work.

"He’s a nice horse," Hawkes said. "We’ve had a pretty good idea that he is a pretty handy performer and all his early work had been promising."

The win was also a race success for a Hawkes trained galloper having their first start in Victoria with blinkers a part of their gear.

"I can’t actually remember starting another one with them on for the debut," Hawkes said.

"He’s done a month in pre-training and he’ll be coming back to the stables on Monday," Hawkes said.

The stables plans to target a race like the Bletchingly Stakes with the son of Rubiton for his first up race.

"He races well fresh, so hopefully we can look at the Bletchingly or a race like that with him first up," Hawkes added.

The win of I Scream was the third to the point of the day for the Hawkes camp. Another cerise clad galloper, Cheam, scored in a driving finish at Rosehill in Sydney in between the two Melbourne wins.
