The Mother Of All Comebacks~Bold Hawk

Could this be for real? After a three year layoff Bold Hawk is nominated to the Knickerbocker next week. After scoring in the Hawthorne Derby (video at link)Bold Hawk has not been seen during the afternoon since finishing third in the 2007 Hollywood derby. This would be one of the more amazing stories in racing if this gelding made a successful comeback after a three year layoff.

This is a huge gelding with a long stride. He was poised to become a force in turf route division. He showed great promise as the three year old. Can he make it back after all this time?

I remember you being high on this horse. I think you had a post on him in this space waaaay back when.

As for the possibility of him getting back to form when he's just about to turn a ripe 7 years of age... I'll pass.

But it will be interesting to see him in the gate again.

Bold Hawk had a tightener at Keeneland this week. Finished forth and should move forward in longer races.
