Welcome to Hawkes Racing


When Real Saga took out the 2008 Breeders Plate on the Epsom Day at Royal Randwick, it created a piece of racing history for Team Hawkes.

This was the first runner prepared by a training partnership to race in Sydney - and it took out a stakes race for trainers Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes. Team Hawkes was off to a flying start and hasn't looked back since. The training partnership of Hall of Famer John Hawkes and his sons, Michael and Wayne, also prepared the first Group One winner by a training partnership in Sydney racing when Fiumicino won the 2009 The BMW on Golden Slipper Day at Rosehill Gardens.

Michael, Wayne and John Hawkes share a passion and admiration for the thoroughbred and each is dedicated to making a success of Team Hawkes. John Hawkes is renowned as one of Australia's all-time great trainers but he regrets his sons did not get officially recognised for their contributions to his success until the training partnership was established.

"I'm glad the boys are with me now in a partnership and they can get some recognition for their hard work. The boys have been working with me for more than a decade and even though we don't have the numbers now, the system is still the same. Nothing has changed in that regard."

With Michael in charge of the main stable base at Rosehill Gardens and Wayne in charge of the team's Flemington stable base, John splits his time between the two stables. They attend all of the yearling sales.

In just a short time, Team Hawkes has already made its mark in Australian racing. They have won feature races with top class gallopers like Fiumicino, Real Saga, Mentality, O'Lonhro, Rainbow Styling, Dao Dao and Love Conquers All.
