WA Blackbookers Horses To Follow
- Blackbookers to catch the eye in Western Australia
- Our latest horses to follow from Perth racing
Looking for WA horses to follow each Saturday? We pick out the best blackbookers each week from the metropolitan meeting in Western Australia.
From winners of feature races to unlucky loses and first up gallopers outrunning expectations, we select three or four horses each week to add to your blackbook from Perth’s Saturday racing.
Here are some horses to put in your blackbook:
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON JUNE 25
Race 4 – 62+ (1000 METRES) – BITOFMERIT
Now 3 from 3, this horse continues to impress and the curiosity of where it can get to is still intriguing. The trainer mentioned that he was slightly underdone coming into this race but he was still able to run home 7L faster than the class average and win impressively. Big watch on him moving forward.
Race 9 – 78+ (1200 METRES) – SECRET PLAN
A talented galloper that announced himself again this preparation. Senior went on, nice draw, sting out of the ground and he showed his best again. Off a slow tempo, he was able to run home 10L faster than the class average and beat a strong field. They’ve always had big plans for him and he’ll get his chance to build towards some better races later in the year.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON JUNE 18
Race 1 – 2yo (1000 METRES) – RUMOUR SAYS
A talented two-year-old that is now two from two. Luke Fernie has been producing them all season and this looks to be another top class animal. Was three wide for the majority and still won with ease. Figures were all strong and she will now be sent for a spell before targeting some big races at Ascot later in the year.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON JUNE 11
Race 4 – 78+ (1000 METRES) – BRIGHT DIAMOND
A really nice return to racing by this mare. Having finished second in the Listed Jungle Dawn last preparation, a result like this came as no surprise. She was able to do a lot of the chasing herself and then let down strongly to run home 7L faster than the class average over the last 600m.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON JUNE 4
Race 7 – 72+ (1400 METRES) – ORTHEOTHERONESON
This three-year-old just put his hand up as a serious contender for the Guineas, if not the favourite. Trainer Daniel Morton said that he was going to need the run, yet this horse had the audacity to sit three wide for the entire and then still let down strongly. The race rated really well being 8.4L faster than the class average.
Race 9 – 66+ (1200 METRES) – STARTRADE
The Geraldton master showed that he is more than just a country horse with a dominant display in the last at Belmont. He ran the last 600m over 6L faster than the class average and ran the final 200m in 11.60. He can continue to grow through his grades now that he’s based in town with the Morton stable.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON MAY 28
Race 9 – Group 3 (1400 METRES) – GOD HAS CHOSEN
This talented galloper made the step up from ratings races to Group racing successfully on the weekend. Carrying 59kg and sitting at the rear of the field as they approached the home corner, he flew home late to show he belongs in this grade. The race rated well for this grade as well and he looks a runner we can continue to follow as he builds towards a Group 1 Railway Stakes berth.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON MAY 21
Race 2 – 3yo 62+ (1200 METRES) – SNIPAROOCHY
We put this horse in our Blackbook back on April 23. Once again, she was able to show some class and run good time. The race overrall was almost 7L faster than the class benchmark average. In races where there isn’t a lot of pressure, she is going to be very hard to beat.
Race 5 – 72+ (1200 METRES) – ROKANORI
Impressive victory on return. Was able to run home 10L faster than the class benchmark after they went very slow early. What is a good sign for this guy is that he’s only going to get better as he stretches out in distance. We will be following him moving forward.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM BELMONT ON MAY 14
Race 8 – 72+ (1400 METRES) – DEVOTED
Devoted showed that he is ready to make a name for himself this preperation. Stepping into a 72+ 1400 first-up for the M. Grantham stable, he ran over 5L faster than the class benchmark and still had plenty left in the tank. He will be the favourite for the G2 WA Guineas and deserves to be from this one start alone.
Race 3 – G3 ROMA CUP (1200 METRES) – EITE STREET
Back-to-back victories for Elite Street and he has now shown us that we can trust him coming back from his bleed last year. They went out fast and he was still able to produce a devastating turn of foot. They ran almost 7L faster than the average benchmark for this grade and he will once again be the horse to beat in the G1 Winterbottom Stakes if he stays sound
