Firebolt Heads North In Search Of Black-Type
The Kelso Wood-trained Gr2 winner Firebolt (Stravinsky-Woodsong, by Woodman) will return to his favoured distance in an attempt to get his campaign back on track in the $80,000 Listed Tattersall's Mile (1600m) at Doomben tomorrow. The 7YO NZ-bred galloper has disappointed in all four runs this preparation, including his last-start 6th, beaten 6.4-lengths, behind Destiny's Kiss over 2000m at Rosehill. But his record suggests an improved showing may be on the cards this weekend. Of his 9 career victories, 6 wins have been over a mile with 2 of those wins recorded at Doomben. Lining up against Firebolt is a field of 14 which includes Gr1 winner Green Birdie, last-start Gold Coast Guineas runner-up Lucky Hussler & the in-form Loaded.
