Safado brilliant victory on debut

Safado kicked off his career with a brilliant victory in the fourth event, providing Kim Waugh Stable with the first leg of a memorable double at Hawkesbury yesterday.
The Lonhro gelding jumped well from the gate settling beautifully under the guidance of Andrew Gibbons, travelling sweetly in fourth position Gibbons bided his time allowing Safado to balance up before asking for his effort showing a nice turn of foot to score an impressive victory. “Safado is a lovely type who has always shown nice ability at home. He had been trialling nicely finishing second behind King Hewitt who won on debut at Newcastle on Friday so we were quietly confident of a strong showing” added Kim
