Bel Sprinter on Track for Singapore Sprint

Bel Sprinter is poised to become the latest Australian speedster to experience international success when he lines up in the Group 1 2013 Krisflyer International Sprint in Singapore (1200m) on Sunday.

The five-year-old came through his international flight unscathed and is settling in well to life in Singapore.

“He didn’t leave an oat last night,” Assistant trainer Mitchell Beer said told Singapore Turf Club on Tuesday.

“He has done far beyond our expectations.”

The Jason Warren-trained sprinter had a light trot on Tuesday morning, leaving Beer confident he is on track for Sunday’s test.

“I wouldn’t go changing anything at this stage,” he said.

Bel Sprinter goes into the international race third-up after some outstanding lead-up form.

The Bel Esprit gelding produced a remarkable first-up win and his first at Group 1 level when claiming The Galaxy by 3 1/2 lengths on March 30.

After blundering the start he settled at the back of the field before unleashing a scintillating turn of foot to blow his rivals away.

That was followed by a solid third behind Black Caviar and Epaulette in the TJ Smith.

Among the rivals Bel Sprinter will have to overcome on Sunday is Hong Kong’s star galloper Lucky Nine.

The Dubawi gelding is a winner of 11 of 29 starts including four at Group 1 level.

It has been a long preparation for the Caspar Fownes-trained sprinter but Fownes is hoping he has one good run left.

“This is his last run for the year and then we’ll turn him out for the summer. Hopefully he’s got a good one left in him for the year,” Fownes said.
