Horse Racing: Bolt to race at Randwick

The enthusiastic trainer Grahame Begg does not seem to be bothered by the streak of losses and the extra weight that his colt Delago Bolt will be carrying with him when he will return to the racetrack at Randwick.
Delago Bolt will be running in the 1000 metre Summer Raceday Handicap scheduled to take place on the 27th of November 2010. The colt is known to carry weight of 60.5 kg under the trainer Begg. This is the first meet that Bolt will start under
Grahame Begg.
The four year old racehorse will be taking part in a sprint event for the first time, after his career began to decline, despite his successful juvenile racing season. Most of the events in which Bolt has participated have been black-type races, which are
very different from sprint meets.
Delago Bolt proved himself as the champion of the 2009 Black Opal Stakes. A month later, he finished midfield in Phelan Ready’s Golden Slipper.
The only good performance that Bolt gave in the last season was a Flemington placing. Nonetheless, his sprint trainer Begg believes that the colt has immense potential and can do great things as a galloper.
Talking to the correspondents about Delago Bolt’s development, Begg said, “If you look at his career he’s always raced against the best.”
He added, “Saturday’s race is clearly the easiest he has been in since he raced as an early two year old.”
Bolt will be running the event on Saturday under the dominating jockey High Bowman. The last race in which High Bowman was on board with Bolt was the Rosehill that was held in February. Delago Bolt was the second place finisher in a Warwick Farm barrier
trial that took place on Friday, the 19th of November.
Begg was reported as saying, “I decided to go with Hugh rather than claim because I don’t think big weights matter so much in sprint races.”
Begg trained two of his horses in Wednesday and is now looking forward to work with five gallopers for the event at Randwick.
Two of Begg’s mares who will be starting at the Kensington are Purrpurrlena and Devoirs. The former filly will be running in the Macau Jockey Club Handicap while the former will be participating in the Korea Racing Authority Handicap.
