Rawiller Pleased With Bart Draw
Jockey Brad Rawiller says barrier one gives Black Heart Bart every opportunity to add to his Group 1 record in Saturday's Kingston Town Classic (1800m) in Perth. The Darren Weir-trained 7YO, who is coming off an excellent second to Great Shot in the Gr1 Railway Stakes (1600m) two weeks ago, will be chasing his sixth top-flight victory in the $1 million weight-for-age feature. "Barrier one sometimes means you might get caught a couple back on the fence, but I'll take it any day," Rawiller told racing.com. "Especially in this race as it means he should be able to find his position without too much trouble, relax in the run and be really strong through the line over the 1800 metres." Rawiller added: "He's going really well the horse and we all know he's well in at the weights at the conditions so if I can give him a good run in the race, then I reckon he'll take care of the rest." Black Heart Bart is currently the $3.30 TAB fixed odds favourite for the Kingston Town Classic.
