Memsie Stakes Barrier Draw: Black Heart Bart draws well in 12-strong final field

  • Barrier 3, 4 and 5 have been the most successful in recent times
  • Final field of 12 declared for the year's first Group 1
Black Heart Bart

Defending champion Black Heart Bart has drawn barrier 5 in Saturday’s Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield.

With nine of the past 13 winners jumping from gates 3, 4 and 5, it’s definitely a bonus to have drawn in that inside group of barriers.

The son of Blackfriars is one of three runners for trainer Darren Weir who will also saddle up Tosen Stardom and Humidor who have drawn barriers 4 and 11 respectively. 

Black Heart Bart resumed this campaign with a 3rd placing behind Hartnell and Charmed Harmony in the PB Lawrence Stakes (1400m) on an unsuitable Soft track, and he’s sure to take plenty of improvement into the Memsie. 

Classy sprinter Vega Magic is unbeaten in two runs since joining the Lindsay Park stable, and he’s come up with the remaining lucky gate and will jump from barrier 3.

Having claimed the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) at his first run for the new stable, Vega Magic resumed this campaign with a gusty win over Brave Smash in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.

Adding to the quality of this stellar field is three-time Group 1 winner Le Romain, Australian Derby winner Jon Snow, Australian Guineas winner Hey Doc, Myer Classic winner I Am A Star and dual Group 1 winner Yankee Rose.
