Wet track Only Question for Bel Sprinter – The Galaxy 2012

Exciting gelding Bel Sprinter will be chasing a first Group 1 victory when he starts as favourite in the 2012 Galaxy (1100m) at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse this weekend.

Bel Sprinter

Bel Sprinter is favourite for Saturday's Group 1 Galaxy at Randwick

Trained by Jason Warren, the four-year-old is the current top elect to take out the $350,000 event and is fresh off a fourth-place finish to Rain Affair in the Challenge Stakes.

After beginning the year with a one-length win in the WJ Adams and a reasonable sixth in the Oakleigh Plate, the son of Bel Esprit was talked about as a Newmarket Handicap front runner but was unfortunately scratched due to an injury to his hind leg.

Ben Melham has ridden the gelding in all of his races to date but he will be in new territory this weekend with Dwayne Dunn in the saddle when he jumps from barrier five.

With the track currently as rated a heavy and unlikely to improve too much by Saturday it will be interesting to see how the four-year-old handles the conditions, having only raced on good and dead tracks previously.

Bel Sprinter ($5.00) currently sits as bookmaker.com.au favourite ahead of three-year-old Nobby Snip ($6.00) who has been in sensational form.
