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 JANUARY 8
Race 4 – 72+ (1000 METRES) – PLATINUM BULLET
Returned to the winners circle with a very impressive victory. The Simon Miller trained galloper ran the last 600m in 33.32, 11 lengths faster than the class benchmark. It was the first win for over a year for the five-year-old mare by Shooting To Win and if she can remain consistent, she should be winning again soon with a similar performance.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON JANUARY 1
Race 4 – 66+ (1000 METRES) – ACROMANTULA
Very talented galloper that is always dangerous over 1000m. Ran the last 600m 6L faster than the average for the class. Has shown that with the right conditions is very hard to beat and took a good one even the start before in The Front Bar to run him down. Has now won four from eight starts.
Race 6 – LISTED (1000 METRES) – MISS CONTEKI
What an amazing performance this was! She ran the last 600m in 32.84 and got him 12L faster than the average for this class. She has now won eight from twelve and with a performance like that, the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes next year must already be a long-term goal.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON DECEMBER 18
Race 5 – 66+ (1200 METRES) – SON SON
A nice win from this horse second-up. He ran 3.5L faster than the class average for the final 600m and appears to have returned in really good order. As a four-year-old gelding, he now has five victories from 11 starts and has only finished outside the top three on two occasions. He should get stronger out to 1400m and the mile also doesn’t look like it will bother him at the moment. He looks like he can go through his grades and tackle some Listed / Group 3 races early next year.
Race 8 – 78+ (1200 METRES) – THE SPRUIKER
This horse was a regular in our Blackbooks last preparation. This victory was 5L faster than the average for this class and his record shows that he will only get better out to 1400m. He has won seven of his last nine races and just knows how to find the line.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON DECEMBER 11
Race 4 – 66+ (1500 METRES) – GOD HAS CHOSEN
This horse just continues to get better and better. 8 starts now for 5 wins and 3 seconds. The win on the weekend was simply dominant. He ran 5.5L faster than the class average and did it with plenty left. This horse looks like a Group 1 Railway contender for 2022. It will be interesting to see if he stays in WA or heads over east, but with the form he is in you can keep backing him as he goes through his grades.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON DECEMBER 4
Race 4 – 72+ (1100 METRES) – WRITTEN MATTER
Another promising type from the Gangemi stable. This horse has his issues, he’s a hot head, he’s had barrier issues, he works himself up, but most importantly, he wins. He has now won four from five and his win on the weekend they ran the race 7L faster than the class benchmark. I think he will be more suited over 1200-1400m and ridden more in his comfort zone. His two runs this preparation, while being stressed in the heat and ridden to suit conditions show that he has genuine ability.
HORSES TO FOLLOW FROM ASCOT ON NOVEMBER 27
Race 4 – 78+ (1200 METRES) – TRIPLE MISSILE
Featured back on October 16 and showed us the class again on the weekend. Was emergency for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes but was able to win this impressively. The horse wen 8.5 lengths faster than the average for this class. It actually ran a faster time than Graceful Girl did in the Winterbottom Stakes. Whether this horse stays in WA for another start, or finds itself in Victoria, we can follow it again and it will definitely be a 2022 Winterbottom contender if they are in WA for the race.
Race 8 – Group 1 (1200 METRES) – GRACEFUL GIRL
Brilliant performance and showed her class to overcome a tough barrier draw and win with ease. She’s only four-year-of-age and remains lightly raced. Her future is very bright and it will be intriguing to see where she goes next. A campaign in Victoria over the Autumn and leading into the Spring certainly looks a viable option.
