Older Comments about the 2011 Hardwicke Stakes (G2)...

I submit to you that Await The Dawn may be the most talented of all of Aidan O'Brien's 4yr.old's at Ballydoyle. To include Cape Blanco, Jan Vermeer, Midas Touch, and even Joshua Tree back when O'Brien was training him. Await The Dawn has just been much more lightly raced the others. Today's win in the G2 Hardwicke Stakes at Ascot makes Await The Dawn's career record, 6-5-0-0. It also answered the 12f question concerning him, as he had yet to be raced beyond 10f prior to today. Immediately following the Hardwicke Stakes, trainer Aidan O'Brien, and Await The Dawn's co-owner, John Magnia, stated that Await The Dawn will be coming to Churchill Downs in November to run in the Breeders Cup Classic. Await The Dawn's sire, the iron horse, Giant's Causeway, lost by a nose to Tiznow at Churchill Downs in the 2000 Breeders Cup Classic. With the retirement of the likes of Zenyatta, Blame, Lookin At Lucky, and Quality Road, the American's are vulnerable to defeat in this year's Classic. Even on conventional dirt, IMO. Await The Dawn will give Ireland a very legit shot in the Classic.
