Gr1 Sprint Next For Heroic Valour
Meanwhile, Heroic Valour will make his next appearance in the Gr1 NRM Sprint (1400m) at Te Rapa on 11 February, before a possible trip to Brisbane for the Gr1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in the winter, reports NZ Racing Desk. "Heroic Valour will run in the NRM Sprint and then we'll freshen him up as well and he could well be seen in action in Brisbane, but we want to get Saturday out of the way first," co-trainer Jamie Richards said. Heroic Valour, a Fastnet Rock half-brother to Doncaster Handicap winner Triple Honour, is a winner of last season's Gr1 Diamond Stakes. He was last seen finishing runner-up to outstanding filly Volpe Veloce in the Karaka Mile at Ellerslie.
