‘Bart’ Aims for Kingsford-Smith Cup


Black Heat Bart | Bronwen Healy

Five-time Group 1 victor Black Heart Bart (Aus) (Blackfriars {Aus}) pulled up well from his seventh-place run in the G1 Goodwood at Morphettville on Saturday and will target the G1 Kingsford-Smith Cup at Eagle Farm on May 27, Racing And Sports reported. Black Heart Bart will travel Wednesday evening, while hoop Brad Rawiller returns to the saddle in Saturday’s contest.

“The Warrnambool guys say he’s pulled up well,” trainer Darren Weir told Racing And Sports. “I wasn’t disappointed in him, but he was ridden a bit too close [to the pace last time].”
