Hasna..our 2yo to follow

Hi there,
Now that a few of the young horses have come out to play I thought that I would start up this thread in order to follow a 2 yo through the season. I have decided to pick Hasna because she has displayed some talent at the trials and on raceday. We can update this when she races and see how she ends up.

PHOTO: Jo Adams
TITLE: Hasna
DESCRIPTION: One of the new two year-olds for Sydney racing at the first barrier trials at Canterbury
HASNA WINS FIRST RACE
Hasna has an impressive win 10/22/2002
ONE OF the most impressive 2Y0 winners of the season so far has been Hasna, successful in last Saturday’s Chairmans Plate at Randwick.
Trained by Gai Waterhouse, the promising filly saluted by 3.8 lengths - having at her previous (and first) outing finished second in the Listed Widden Stakes behind Secret Land.
Hasna, the highest priced Snippets filly at this year’s Magic Millions Sale at the Gold Coast, is the second foal of the American mare They Say who was brought to Australia by Victoria’s The Pines Stud.
The Pines’ Emma Boling and Graeme Little were thrilled to bits by Hasna’s win – looking forward to her contesting the Magic Millions in January.
"Not surprised," that Hasna has been showing ability, Boling said that the bay had always had something special about her.
"She was a beautiful foal," she said, "and right from the time she was born she had a magnificent temperament – she was always very relaxed."
Boling and Little will consign Hasna’s half sister, a chestnut by Gilded Time, at next year’s Magic Millions and they are confident of a good sale.
"She is a lovely filly," said Little and Boling agreed, pointing out that the mare also boasts plenty of quality.
"They Say is a beautiful looking mare," said Boling, "and she is throwing great types."
Due to foal to Jeune in mid November, They Say has been booked to Encosta de Lago this spring and what an interesting prospect that is.
A great granddaughter of the fine producing mare Ciboulette, They Say hails from the same family as Encosta de Lago which is the "key reason" as to why The Pines purchased her in the first place.
And so this Encosta de Lago - They Say mating will result in a 6 X 4 cross of Ciboulette whose other successful descendants include the multiple Group One winning successful young stallion Flying Spur (Golden Slipper Stakes, All Aged Stakes, Australian Guineas) and his daughter, the Silver Slipper/Heroic Championship winner French Braids who boasts a 4 X 3 duplication of her third dam Fanfreluche.
A daughter of Ciboulette, Fanfreluche is one of the great broodmares - her progeny including L'Enjoleur (Canadian Horse of the Year) and La Voyageuse (Canadian Champion Filly).
Meanwhile Hasna also has plenty going for her pedigree wise, being line-bred to the great mare Grey Flight as are other talented Snippets progeny such as Snowland, Spartacus and Sublimate. - KM

Arrow Hasna for the millions

Magic Millions order of entry

The first order of entry for the rich Magic Millions race at the Gold Coast on January 11 has been released and is due to be updated twice a week from now until raceday.

The Gai Waterhouse trained Hasna, impressive winner of her last two starts top the list and a Magic Millions by her would be apt as her sire Snippets won the first running.

The Gold Coast local Get Carter, winner of two of his first three starts is next in line followed by the David Hall trained Fashion Victim, the Gai Waterhouse pair Imperialism and Shamekha and last Saturday’s easy Brisbane winner Regimental Gal whose sire General Nediym won the 1997 Magic Millions – returning to years later to take out the Magic Millions Cup.

Auroroa Plate win for Hasna

Lenny Beasley combined with Waterhouse for a double when he guided two-year-old Hasna to a strong win in the Aurora Plate before claiming the Rosehill Gardens Exhibition Centre Handicap on Power Surge.

Hasna was backing up from a win at Randwick last Saturday, and had previously finished second on debut in the Widden Stakes behind stablemate Private Land.

"She just jumped and did everything right," Beasley said.

"She's a very nice filly. She did that easily today."

Hasna was firm in betting at $1.45 and scored by an 6 lengths from Bayraqdaar ($21) and Bella Coureuse ($15).

Arrow Munce for Magic Millions

At this stage it appears Chris Munce will stick with brilliant filly Hasna, who is the leading qualifier for the Magic Millions with prizemoney of $76,500 earned from her wins in Sydney early in the season.

Hasna will run in a barrier trial next Tuesday at Rosehill and have one lead-up race, possibly at Randwick on January 1, before heading to the Gold Coast.

Arrow Best of the bunch

Hasna the best of the Magic Millions bunch


Trainer Gai Waterhouse has a huge opinion of two year-old Hasna. The filly Snippets from They Say; made it three wins from four starts today at Randwick in the De Bortoli Wines Handicap (1100m) and Waterhouse declared “She’s the best of the Magic Millions bunch for sure. She went out a $1.40 odds-on favorite and won like a good thing.

“She’s just a real professional racehorse, she’s not overly tall but she’s built like a tank. She eats, sleeps and works, that’s it, she knows she’s a racehorse and is bomb-proof,” said Waterhouse.

“This run after the trial won’t flatten her at all, she can really take the work, more so than any other two year-old I’ve had. She reminds me very much on how Snowland was at this same time last year."

Part owner George Altomonte had wanted to change the colours on Hasna prior to the race, Waterhouse saying:
“He said he why not put on Phar Lap’s colours on her?
“I said, why? He’s dead; this filly is alive and well!
“Then I asked him after she won if he still wanted to change the colours and he said; ‘No way!’”

Hasna sat up on the lead and kicked away from the field round the turn. Sharp (Darren Beadman) put in a good challenge but as soon as Chris Munce asked Hasna for a bit more, she kicked away to score a convincing win, especially under the top weight of 60.5kgs.

“She went really well,” said Munce.“She trialled on Tuesday and had a good blow, she really needed that. It was a terrific effort under that weight; she didn’t put a foot wrong.”

Hasna won by two lengths from Sharp with That Darn Cat (Noel Callow) in third spot. They ran 1.04.04 for the 1100m, the final 600m in 34.32.

Punters say Hasna worth the weight

By Craig Young at Rosehill

December 29 2002
The Sun-Herald



The Magic Millions credentials of Gai Waterhouse's bullet-proof filly Hasna soared after a demoralising victory when returning from a let-up in the De Bortoli Wines Handicap yesterday.

Hasna was weighed down with 60.5kg but the two-year-old was sent out a firming favourite at the prohibitive odds of $1.40 and supporters got to collect.

The two-length victory wasn't without concern but such was the ease of the win at the end that Hasna confirmed her place at the top of betting for the $1million Magic Millions Stakes on the Gold Coast on January11.

"She certainly deserves to hold favouritism on that performance," said Colin Tidy, a two-year-old form specialist and leading bookmaker.

"She couldn't do much more, she is quite adaptable and will be improved with the run.


"She can go forward or back, you can put her anywhere, so she'll be hard to beat in the Millions, even more so because she has been set specifically for the race."

Magic Millions-winning jockey Chris Munce was having his first race ride aboard Hasna, a $160,000 purchase, having partnered the filly to victory in a barrier trial at Rosehill last Tuesday.

"That was a very good win," Munce said yesterday.

"I know there is a lot of improvement in her and back to the set weights in the Magic Millions she is going to take a lot of beating.

"She showed today how versatile she is. It was a fine effort under a big weight."

Hasna emerged in the spring to finish second in the Widden Stakes on debut behind stablemate Secret Land before winning at Randwick and Rosehill. Following her 6-length victory at Rosehill on October26, Waterhouse decided to turn Hasna out for a short let-up and she returned in devastating fashion yesterday.

From barrier three Hasna showed a dazzling turn of foot out of the machine, with Munce parking the daughter of Snippets outside the leader before dashing away halfway up the straight.

For a fleeting moment the first starter from the powerful John Hawkes stable, Sharp, emerged from behind the leader on the fence to set out in pursuit of Hasna.

Those who had laid the odds-on had to endure a few anxious moments, but when Munce asked for an extra effort Hasna accelerated in the style of a horse with class.

"She relaxed nice in the run and quickened when required ... she is pretty foolproof," Munce said.

Sharp had supporters when starting at $9 and finished a half-length in front of That Darn Cat, which blew out from $6.50 to $15.

Hasna is owned in partnership by George Altomonte, who is no stranger to the racing game.

"This will be my first runner in a Magic Millions," he said.

The long-time owner of thoroughbreds said Hasna was deserving of favouritism for the Magic Millions.

"I'd say after that win she does," Altomonte said. "She found that other gear down there [at the top of straight], which was good."

The owner said he immediately liked the look of Hasna when laying eyes on the yearling at the Magic Millions sale earlier in the year.

"She looked like a two-year-old," he said. "What can you say about that, you either like them or you don't."

Arrow Hasna the pace-setter

Raging Magic Millions 2YO Classic favourite Hasna received a glowing endorsement from her race jockey Chris Munce after a special gallop at Eagle Farm yesterday.

Chris Munce put Magic Millions favourite Hasna through her paces at Eagle Farm in a gallop alongside stablemate and fellow Millions contender Imperialism.

"She certainly has improved since her Sydney win and she did need the hit out. She looked as though she had done very well since coming to Brisbane," Munce said.



Hasna accounted for stablemate and rival Imperialism in a 600m gallop on the Eagle Farm dirt, the pair being asked for a solid hit-out in the last 200m.

Munce made the special trip to Brisbane from Sydney on Sunday night to work Hasna and the Gai Waterhouse Magic Millions team yesterday.

"She felt strong in her gallop. She had a clear edge on Imperialism. In fact she seemed to be waiting for him a bit. I'd have to say I am as confident going into this race as I have been but you also have to respect the rivals. It's not all clear cut"

"I also worked How Funny this morning. You can't fault her form and Merhoob and Charmview were impressive on Saturday in Sydney. Danbird is obviously a good horse and the locals, like Regimental Gal, are always hard to beat. The barrier draw will be important."

Munce is chasing his third Magic Millions Classic success, having won on Sunblazer (1989) and Excellerator (2001).

Arrow Magic Millions wrap up

How Funny appeared to sideswipe the favourite Hasna, also prepared by Waterhouse, but was going better at the time.

Ironically the wide gates counted against the Waterhouse pair but Chris Munce, rider of Hasna, maintained she "had cover" and in the final assessment was "a touch disappointing" going down by 3 lengths in seventh place.

Waterhouse offered no excuses for Hasna's seventh placing yesterday after being sent out a solid $2.20 favourite.

"She just didn't ping today," Waterhouse said.

While saying Hasna, How Funny ($12) and Imperialism (13th) would be freshened up before embarking on an autumn campaign aimed towards the Golden Slipper, Waterhouse said Snippy (sixth) and L'Espalier (16th) would head for the spelling paddock.

Arrow Hasna sert to trial

Gai Waterhouse's two year-old filly Hasna, will continue her preparation towards the Golden Slipper with a barrier trial at Warwick Farm on Friday.

HASNA (Snippets - They Say (USA)) is set to run in Heat 4 over 800m.

Gai's filly can prove she's no has-been

By Max Presnell
March 1 2003


The gamble with Hasna, a winner of three of five starts, in today's Silver Slipper at Rosehill Gardens is whether she can return to her best at the venue.

"Hasna wasn't the same filly today as she was at Rosehill last start," jockey Chris Munce said after the Gai Waterhouse two-year-old could finish only seventh, beaten 3.5 lengths, in the Magic Millions at the Gold Coast on January 11.

The filly struck trouble late but was going nowhere at the time. Also, she came from the 12 gate, which made her task more difficult but, again, Hasna lacked the horsepower she had displayed in previous races.

The most popular explanation is that Hasna had the edge sapped out of her by winning over 1100 metres at Rosehill under 60 kilograms.

Following her Gold Coast failure, Waterhouse gave her a nice break followed by a tuning-up barrier trial at Warwick Farm on February 21.


The trial indicated Hasna was well but it hardly produced the same pressure as a race. While it is likely she has overcome her loss of form at the Gold Coast, only today's race will confirm whether she has returned to her best.

The set weights of the Silver Slipper, in which fillies, on 53.5kg, receive 3kg from the colts and geldings, is made to order for her. Under handicap conditions, Hasna would be conceding all her rivals weight, considering her prizemoney of $105,750.

So far this season, the two-year-old fillies have given the impression they are superior to the colts and geldings.

Take, for instance, Polar Express, a major rival for Hasna in the Silver Slipper. Polar Express won a Rosehill 1100m dash under 58kg in one minute 3.47seconds on February 15. In the following race over the same journey, Olympus, with only 55kg, recorded 1:03.56.

So on times, weights and measures, Polar Express should have the measure of Olympus, but with two-year-olds, natural improvement should be taken into consideration. And Olympus is on an upward spiral.

Olympus, from the nine gate, should go forward, while the Queenslander Best Northern (two), is a leader.

This promises to give Hasna (four) and Polar Success (eight) a nice run behind, should Dan Beasley, on Polar Success, take a sit. If he has to go with the pace, all the better for Munce on Hasna.

The query runner is Solid As A Rock, a Danehill gelding making his debut. Solid As A Rock won a recent Warwick Farm barrier trial in fast time but has a considerable task first up against such seasoned opposition.

VERDICT: Hasna to make it three out of three at Rosehill.

Arrow HASNA WINS the SILVER SLIPPER!!!!!!

Game little Hasna's Silver Slipper


Starting a $2.50 favourite, Hasna (Chris Munce) took out the $200,000 Group 2 Omni Silver Slipper (1100m) with a barn storming run down the centre of the track after sitting off the pace.



Queenslander Best Northern (Glen Colless) ($16.00) and Polar Success (Danny Beasley) ($3.80) took up the role of front runners and the pace was a cracking one.

Chris Munce told Racing Manager Steve Brem that he had no intention of making a fight of it at the start when they went so hard and his judgement, as usual, paid off.

Hasna relaxed beautifully in the run and had plenty of fight in her when it came to the crunch. The filly won by a short neck from Polar Success with a head to the unlucky Legally Bay (Rod Quinn) in third spot.

They ran 1.03.96 for the 1100m, the final 600m in 34.54.
Part owner George Altomonte, even after 33 years in the business was delighted with the win: "I have been with Jack Denham for all of those 33 years but it was just the way things panned out with Hasna.

"Gai Waterhouse was the underbidder at the Magic Million on this filly and afterwards she came up to us and said, she had been really keen to buy the filly. I said to her, don't worry you can have her to train. Gai has been very good with us. She's away at a wedding today but she's already been on the phone to me, she's on the ball!"

"Hasna will probably go straight into the Golden Slipper now, I'm not sure but I'll leave that up to Gai. She does need to be kept on the fresh side, so maybe she'll just trial her before the Slipper rather than find a race for her. I think she'll get 1200m no problem. She's got a little bit of fire in her at the end which is always good to see ."

A major disappointing run of the race was Olympus ($9.00) who had to sit wide for most of the journey. He dropped out as the field turned for home and ended up in last position. Jockey Jim Cassidy had no real excuse for the colt: "He probably needs to be up in the lead to keep his mind on the job. He doesn't put in when he's behind them."

An excellent run came from Spurcent (Brent Stanley) who finished fourth and was doing her best work at the end.
1100m was probably a touch short for her today and she'll be looking to enjoy 1200m for sure later on in her preparation.
