He’s Henry Scratched from Belmont Classic 2012

Dan Morton’s last start winning three-year-old He’s Henry won’t be stepping up to stakes company for the first time this Saturday having been withdrawn from the 2012 Belmont Classic at Belmont Racecourse in WA.

The Helenus gelding broke their maiden status at start number seven last time out on July 4, He’s Henry beating home Incentive Scheme in the Westspeed Stayers’ Bonus (2200m), repaying part-owner Basil Galluccio who bought them for only $1,500 as a weanling at the 2009 Perth sales.

He’s Henry was a cheap buy to keep a recently weaned youngster company but is developing into a nice stayer of the future to watch having already won $14,750 in stakes.

They were originally set to return to the same track and distance this weekend for the $80,000 Listed Belmont Classic (2200m) but connections have decided to run them at Belmont today instead.

“I think Dan just put him into the Classic to see what the field was like,” Galluccio’s son and fellow co-owner John said.

“Dad was looking for a mate for a youngster we had just weaned.

“He liked the breeding of the horse (who shares a sire with Ethiopia and Cedarberg) and we took him to our property at Clackline.

“The other weanling had a couple of runs but he wasn’t any good.

“He’s Henry should be fitter after stepping up from 1500 to 2200 (metres) and hopefully it can be two in a row.”

With their last start winning hoop Troy Turner retaining the ride, He’s Henry will jump one of the top fancies in the $15,000 ozbet.com.au Handicap (2100m).

Also engaged for Belmont Race 5 this afternoon are fellow Belmont Classic nominees that won’t be accepted for Saturday with Incentive Scheme looking to turn the tables on their last start conqueror, the George Daly-trained California Dude and Adam Durrant’s progressive Saxon filly Jim ‘N’ Jim.

There are still plenty of talented youngsters in line for the Belmont Classic title on Saturday however including Fred Kersley’s Dayana Plate champ Operational and last start Belmont Oaks winner Rantorini.

As soon as the Belmont Classic final field and barriers are released they will be published right here at Races.com.au along with a detailed race preview so stay tuned.
