Boom Perth Sprinter Barakey Injured
Trainer Jim Taylor has abandoned plans to run unbeaten 4YO gelding Barakey (Key Business-Dance Hi, by Ideal Planet) in Saturday's Listed H.G.Bolton Sprint at Belmont Park, after Perth's latest boom sprinter "knocked himself in his stall" resulting in "swelling in a leg" reported The West Australian. Taylor noted: "It looks to be a bit of bruising & he will have a few days off." Barakey took his record to 8 wins from 8 starts with his latest victory in the Listed Northam Stakes (1100m) in Western Australia on April 29.
