Ray Thomas (left) is the long-time turf editor of Sydney’s Telegraph and we liked the intro to his Bel Sprinter ‘wrap’ following Friday night’s victory:
“It is unfair to company any racehorse to Black Caviar, but Bel Sprinter does share a few things in common with the Champion Mare.
Both are by the same sire, Bel Esprit, they have talent to burn – and they don’t mind winning!”
Champion trainer, David Hayes, wasn’t backward in coming forward about Bel Sprinter either, declaring PRIOR to Friday night’s race that: “I do have a bit of respect for the topweight (Bel Sprinter). I think he’s a bit of star. If the great mare (Black Caviar) wasn’t around, he’d be the No. 1 (sprinter) in Australia.”
