William Haggas to train SA star Hawwaam
News breaking today on Nick Luck’s podcast is that multiple South African Gr1 winner Hawwaam is to race in the UK under the care of William Haggas during 2021.
His former trainers Mike de Kock made the following comments to podcast host Luck on the show.
“He’s definitely got ability and is a very good horse. If he can deal with the undulations…and adapt to the situation there I think he’ll do very, very well. It’ll be very interesting to see how the South African form will stack up with your horses.
“Its only every now and then you get the real South African champion that will stand up to your quality. I think he will be competitive, it’s really hard to tell, but I think the best of this horse is still to come.”
