Plenty of excitement down Mornington way for Jason Warren and his team with the news that his star galloper, Bel Sprinter (below), has recovered from a foot abscess and will have a jump out on Friday.
Warren battled injury problems with Bel Sprinter last campaign after resuming from an accolade-loaded spring with a stakes victory at Caulfield (WJ Adams Stakes) in February.
This Bel Esprit flyer is a class act and his immediate aim is the Group Three Mitty’s McEwen Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on 15 September.
Meanwhile, Bel Esprit racked up his fifth and sixth winners in the past four days with an interstate double yesterday.
Speedy mare, Novaspirit (from the General Nediym mare Nova Glen), won her third start for popular owners, Kevin and Tanith O’Brien, when scoring over 1000m at Geelong, while Javaspirit (out of the Desert Sun mare Java Siang) notched up a win over 1400m at Tamworth.
