Kingston Town Classic: Bart out to deliver fitting tribute to late owner
GLENN McFARLANE, Herald Sun
December 8, 2017 4:05pm

STAR galloper Black Heart Bart can provide an emotional postscript to an exceptionally tough week for his connections by winning Saturday’s $1 million Kingston Town Classic following the sudden death of one of the part-owners Craig Delacy on Wednesday.



The super consistent seven-year-old is the $2.90 favourite to take out the last Group 1 of the calendar year after narrowly missing out in the Railway Stakes a fortnight ago.

Delacy’s passing has shocked all associated with the Black Heart Bart story, and a win at Ascot on Saturday can provide a fitting tribute to a man who loved his racing.

“It was a shock,” Jarrod McLean, travelling foreman for Darren Weir, said on Friday after putting the finishing touches on Black Heart Bart’s preparations.

“He was only 43. He was here for the Railway and he actually sent us a facebook message on Wednesday, the day of his passing.”
Black Heart Bart’s jockey Brad Rawiller expressed his sorrow after developing a close connection with Delacy during the horse’s many successes.

He said emotions will be on display in the mounting yard on Saturday, regardless of how the horse performs.



The much-loved galloper was originally bought by senior part-owner Kim Renner for $20,000 at the 2012 Perth Yearling Sales, with Craig Delacy, Ian McCarthy, Arthur Psaltis and Dave Richardson joining him in the ownership group.

Black Heart Bart has now won almost $4 million and has taken his career to a higher plain since moving to the Weir stable in Victoria.

“He is a Victorian now, but it would be great to see him win (the Kingston Town Classic) because he is as well loved here (in Perth) as he is back in Victoria,” McLean said.
McLean said the stable was confident the horse was “good to go” after a trot and canter, and a quick trip to the beach on Friday morning.

“He has come on really well,” he said. “We were confident last time (in the Railway, where he ran a narrow second to Great Shot), but you can only do so much at home. It was 50-something days between runs. He has taken benefit from the (Railway) run and he hasn’t gone backwards
“The weight-for-age really brings him into it. He has won at 1800m and there are a lot of things in his favour

Weir has credited his foot issue being fixed to being able to work him in deep sand at his new training complex in Maldon. Has also worked in that since being in WA
The horse has struggled with not being able to work as much on the Warrnambool beach due to restrictions.

I want a massive ban for whoever put him through the fence. They do that in a G1 and they're supposed to cop months.

28 days was lenient. Should've copped 2 months for that sort of interference in a headline G1. Round up that fine to $5K as well.

Well we went over for the race hoping Money Maher would be competitive.

As planned we got away outside BHB.  Then Pike cut across the field and caused the chain reaction that left us settling in 9th place instead of in the first five at worst.  Thought the colt showed ticker in  only being beaten 3 1/4 lengths.

But it's bl00dy long way to go only to see such careless riding essentially ruin whatever chance we might have had, quite besides the connection of the fav who were absolutely livid.

Great horse on his day, just got a bit sore in his twilight years, like most of us.

Enjoy a nice green paddock champ

6 Group 1 wins, couldn’t ask for much more. I know I’d be happy with just one.

He will be mighty hard to replace.
