Hellbent Destined for the Top

Tuesday, 29th August 2017

Trainer Darren Weir is confident that richly talented sprinter Hellbent (I Am Invincible-Volkaspray, by Volksraad) can emerge as one of Australia’s star sprinters in the spring, reports racing.com. A winner of 6 of his 17 starts to date, Weir is hoping the 5YO can take the next step after placing fourth and third respectively in the Oakleigh Plate and William Reid Stakes in the autumn. “I'm really keen to get Hellbent back to the races because I think there's a really good race in him somewhere,” Weir said. "He is a really high class galloper and a beautiful type of horse too so hopefully he can show us what he's got this preparation." Hellbent is set to resume in either the Gr2 McEwen Stakes (1000m) or Listed Chandler Macleod Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday week.
