Loca did a lot wrong but showed his class late to win on debut at Ballarat

Team Hawkes have produced expensive yearling purchase Loca to win on debut at Ballarat on Friday.

Loca who was a $900,000 purchase at last years Magic Millions sale on the Gold Coast did not take long to repay some of his price tag with a solid win on debut at Ballarat where the well bred colt did a lot wrong but dug deep to get the cheque.

“I don’t really think it was his forte on the artificial ground. His head was up a bit, his ears were back a bit, probably resented it a bit coming around to the corner,” Wayne Hawkes said on

“He was beaten, simple as that. He dug deep, went to roll in a bit up the straight.

“He got the job done and Dwayne (Dunn) nursed him there. He only won by a small margin, but you only have to win.”

Wayne Hawkes expects the races form to hold-up as we head into the Spring carnival with his colt Loca a $101 chance in the Caulfield Guineas.
