Black Heart Bart Close to Return

Wednesday, 18th July 2018

Multiple Group 1 winner Black Heart Bart could open his spring campaign in the Gr3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday week (28 July) after winning a jump-out at Coleraine in western Victoria yesterday, reports racing.com. Black Heart Bart, who hasn't raced since finishing 9th in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) in Perth in December, defeated highly rated stable-mates Kings Will Dream, Humidor and Big Duke. "We might see Bart next week in the Bletchingly," said trainer Darren Weir's stable foreman Jarrod McLean. "He's probably a year older and we'd probably want to get to a Memsie [Gr1] third-up rather than second-up. He's coming off a long spell so Weiry will have a good think about that."
