Orr First-Up for Bart

Wednesday, 24th January 2018

Top-class galloper Black Heart Bart tuned up for his autumn return with an exhibition gallop at Terang in Melbourne yesterday. The 5-time Gr1 winner, who hasn't raced since finishing 9th in the Gr1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) in Perth in early December, will make his seasonal reappearance in the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on 10 February. "He just went out to do a half-mile gallop. I clocked him running 47.55 seconds, and he was doing that with ease. Brad [jockey Brad Rawiller] had a good hold of him," Jarrod McLean, foreman for trainer Darren Weir, told racing.com. "That should bring him on to see him defend his Orr crown in a couple of weeks' time. He's in great order."
