Bel Sprinter a Chance in 2012 Newmarket Handicap

Exciting gelding Bel Sprinter will be chasing a first Group 1 victory when he runs in the 2012 Newmarket Handicap as part of a Super Saturday of racing at Flemington.

The Jason Warren trained four-year-old is coming off a sixth-place effort in the Apollo Stakes on February 25 but has an impressive record of five wins from seven starts.

He successfully passed a vet check by racing Victoria officials earlier this week after lashing out in the paddock and suffering a superficial wound to his off side cannon bone.

The son of Bel Espirit easily got through a trial run on Monday, when bandaged the same way he will be when he runs from barrier 13 on Saturday.

Bel Sprinter ($6.00) currently sits as equal second favourite (with Rain Affair) for the Newmarket Handicap at the preferred bookmaker.
