Settle Strada Takes Out H.G. Bolton Sprint 2013 – Results

After a first-up win at the same track, David Harrison’s comeback sprinter Settle Strada made it two on the trot at Belmont Park on the weekend with a win in the 2013 H.G. Bolton Sprint.

The now four-year-old Strada gelding showed plenty of promise last winter with a string of four straight wins at Belmont before coming back in the summer for a disappointing prep when taken to Perth’s premier track at Ascot.

They showed they were back on track first-up on July 13 however with a nice win in the Listed Beaufine Stakes (1000m) and kept that form going a fortnight later when stepping up in distance for Saturday’s $80,000 Listed H.G. Bolton Sprint (1200m).

Enjoying the give out of the Slow (7) rated ground, Settle Strada ($2.50) was ridden by her last start winning hoop Patrick Carbery who had to work to get the galloper settled after they raced keenly until the 800m mark.

But the duo eventually combined for a successful result once more beating home the always honest Steve Wolfe-trained Kalahaar ($4) by one and a quarter lengths after coming off the fence on the straight and taking down the frontrunners.

In third was then then Daniel Morton’s Danewin six-year-old Zester ($8.50), winner of the race 12 months ago, who was a further one and a half lengths further away.

It was an effort that impressed the winning hoop Carbery who was credited their finishing power believing they could stretch out further in distance over the new season.

“He let out a big breath at the 800m and really started to flow into the race,” Carbery said.

“He is a big horse and I decided to take him off the fence to dodge the cut up ground.

“He didn’t lay in today like he did last start.

“His confidence is growing and the way he is starting to settle he could get further.

“He did switch off a bit when he hit the front.”

Next-up on the agenda for the rejuvenated Settle Strada is the $80,000 Listed Belmont Newmarket (1200m) on August 10 before it’s onto the $130,000 Hannan’s Handicap (1400m) at Kalgoorlie on September 18 – a race Harrison won back in 2009 with McLurch.

“He covered them all of the way and he won pretty softly in the end,” Harrison, who also part owns Settle Strada with his wife Jenny, said on Saturday.

“He can move up the next step now.

“He’ll go on into the Belmont Newmarket next start and if he keeps going he could end up in Kalgoorlie.

“I won the Hannan’s with McLurch and he is obviously a better horse than him.”
