Bel Sprinter Gears Up For The Galaxy 2013

Connections of one-time spruik sprinter Bel Sprinter have confirmed they are making excellent progress from a throat operation and will resume racing in the 2013 The Galaxy at Rosehill Gardens on March 30 this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Winner of five of their opening six career starts during 2010-11 the Jason Warren-trained Bel Esprit gelding contested last year’s $350,000 Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at the end of their autumn preparation but could only manage to finish ninth behind Queensland raider Temple Of Boom.

Last seen running a distant ninth again this time behind Mental in the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) in Melbourne on Emirates Stakes Day, the five-year-old galloper was found to be suffering from a condition which called for their vocal cords to be lasered.

That operation was conducted at the end of last season and they have been working towards race fitness ever since which is near according Warren who was thrilled with their Cranbourne jumpout on Tuesday morning.

“He didn’t make any noise at all this morning and he is probably breathing better now than when he was three,” Warren said.

“He ran pretty good time this morning and I’m happy with how his throat seems to be holding up after the operation.

“He’ll have a jumpout at Randwick next Friday where Hugh Bowman will have a feel of him and then he’ll go straight into the Galaxy on the 30th.”

Warren is also looking forward to saddling up his Moonee Valley specialist Freereturn in Friday night’s $120,000 Listed Abell Stakes (1200m) ahead of a possible clash with Australia’s turf darling Black Caviar in the $400,000 Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) seven days later.

The Rubiton six-year-old was last seen running four lengths away 10th in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield and is sure to appreciate the drop back in class this weekend back at their pet track where they have won four of their five starts.

“If he can run first or second on Friday night and look good doing it, we will probably back him up a week later in the William Reid and see if we can run into a place behind the great mare,” Warren said.

“Moonee Valley is his favourite track and if the William Reid happens to be an eight horse field, he probably wouldn’t look out of place if you took Black Caviar out of it.

“I thought he ran really well in the Oakleigh Plate. He got into a good position but the problem was they just didn’t run along, it was the slowest run Oakleigh Plate that I’ve ever seen.”
