Black Heart Bart Favoured For Goodwood Repeat
Early Markets for this year's Gr1 Goodwood Stakes in Adelaide have ultra consistent Gr1 hero Black Heart Bart at a tempting quote to go back-to-back in May's big feature sprint (see below). The Darren Weir-trained former WA star is currently at $7, marginally ahead of Malaguerra and Supido, both at $9. Black Heart Bart is Australia's quinella king for big race punters, with 12 first or second placings – 9 in Gr1 company – from his past 13 starts. Underlining the scope of his versatility, Black Heart Bart currently holds nominations for the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on March 11 at Flemington, the Gr1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 1 at Royal Randwick, and the Gr1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Royal Randwick on April 8.
