The winner of the most potent form race for staying three-year-olds last season is about to return to trainer Gai Waterhouse’s stable.

Rosehill Guineas hero Laser Hawk is two weeks away from going into serious training after he missed the spring recovering from knee surgery.

The four-year-old has been convalescing at owner Eduardo Cojuangco’s Gooree Stud in western NSW but has been put into light work under the care of the farm’s racing manager Andrew Baddock.

“We’re gearing him up to have him ready for the autumn in Sydney so he’s been in pre-training for a couple of weeks,” Baddock told Sky Sports Radio.

“He’s probably about a fortnight off going to Gai’s and we just wanted to give him a bit of groundwork at Gooree because he’s had such a long lay-off.”

In just his second preparation, Laser Hawk announced himself as a rising star of the turf with his Rosehill Guineas win and his minor placing in the Australian Derby.

Finishing behind Laser Hawk in the Rosehill Guineas was last month’s Cox Plate hero Ocean Park and spring stakes winners Silent Achiever, Ambidexter and Darci Be Good, successful in the Hawkesbury Gold Cup last week.

“It was funny, after the the Cox Plate and all that form stood up Gai was quickly on the phone asking where he was,” Baddock said.

“She certainly pricked her ears to the form.”

Baddock said Laser Hawk had grown considerably since his enforced spell.

“He was a big and lean sort of horse in autumn but he’s furnished into a big, strong animal now,” he said.

Laser Hawk, a half-brother to Gooree’s weight-for-age warrior Desert War, had a bone chip removed less than a week after running in the Australian Derby.

“They said give him four months, four to six months, but we gave him the six because he was going to miss the spring anyway,” Baddock said.
