I didn’t see any issue with his comments.
He thanked the young girl who straps him for looking after him.

Agree.  Imo the earlier post represented a clear misinterpretation of Smith's post-race comments.

I was in a pub and couldn’t quite hear the interview, so could be wrong, but did Smith say that he bought 50% of BHB before taking him on to train?

Black Heart Bart wound back the clock and made it a triumphant return from retirement with a stunning win in today's Group One $750,000 Underwood Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield.
At his third run since a surprise comeback to the track, Black Heart Bart showed he still has a strong thirst for racing and in a driving finish the 100/1 elect held out the warm favourite Homesman strongly.

Today's Group One victory continued the dream start for the new Warrnambool training base for master Perth horseman Lindsey Smith.

Smith was hopeful leading into the Underwood Stakes with the son of Blackfriars after an eighth in the Memsie Stakes and an eleventh to Begood Toya Mother in the Sir Rupert Clarke starts eight days ago.

"He's obviously a grand old horse," Smith said. "I thought he was in a bit of trouble (for his career) last start but the jockey was very confident that he would run a big race today."

"We thought getting him to 1800 (would be better) so he wasn't chasing all the time - it was a good result. It was a bit unexpected I must say."

"It's great for the owner who copped a bit of flack and he got his reward today," Smith added.

It was an emotional win for jockey Brad Rawiller who has ridden Black Heart Bart to many of his biggest wins.

"A master training effort," Rawiller said of Lindsey Smith's efforts with the comeback warrior.

"I've won a Golden Slipper and a Caulfield Cup and never looked like getting teary and I am nearly in tears," Rawiller added.

Black Heart Bart, a spritely nine-year-old bred by Scenic Lodge, was a $20,000 buy from the 2012 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sale for senior part owner Kim Renner from the draft of Lakeside Thoroughbreds.

Now a six time Group One winner, Black Heart Bart has sent his career earnings soaring past $4.46 million.

Today's victory was the second in the Group One Underwood Stakes for Black Heart Bart after winning the race in 2016. He also won a Memsie Stakes and The Goodwood earlier that year and a CF Orr Stakes and Futurity Stakes in the autumn of 2017.

Black Heart Bart is one of three winners produced by the four time metropolitan winning At Talaq mare Sister Theresa - a half sister to multiple Group One winner Savannah Success, the dam of Cox Plate winning sire Savabeel.

Rebel Sister, one of Black Heart Bart's unraced half sisters, is the dam of $900,000 earner Rebel King and his stakes performed brother Rebel Knight and stakes winning half brother Rebelson.

Was there ever anything really wrong with him? BHB @ $100, that’s juicy 🤔🤑

Sadly I didn't, having backed his 2 prevoius runners for zilch!! Worse still, having done form for the 1st 4 races the previous night & come up with 2/4/9/10 as selections R4, discarded 4 the $71 winner as being too long to be a chance LOL
What chance another WA horse later on at an even bigger price? Cry Pretty pathetic really considering good priced winners & exotics are my specialty Ouch

His feet problems have been well documented & having checked out his FB page, am astounded by the deterioration from July 25 '18 when they appear to be rather tight & well balanced to November 24 showing the 'typical' TB soup plates i.e. flared, flat soled & badly lacking heels.
This is clearly poor management, nothing to do with the old 'genetics' excuse so often trotted out.
His retirement & new trainer certainly had time (10months) to correct & grow an entirely new capsule.



If someone's able to enlarge them, go for it! I've spent ages experimenting already LOL

I cant find the post as I cbf going back through the pages but someone did say this was "cruel" etc making BHB race again. Lindsay Smith did say he will not race if he wasnt 100% and now this is proof.

So happy for the old boy.

Great to see BUB winning. Sadly though 1st,2nd and 4th were 9 yr olds. That tells me what I and a small amount of others have said for a few years now and that is that there is no depth in Aussie middle distance WFA racing. It's sad. But Australian racing can make their bed and now they can lie in it. That's what happens when they become obsessed with speed speed speed. Sad to see.

New Zealand Bloodstock
Black Heart Bart Wins Second NZB Caulfield WFA Championship 🏆🖤

A close second placing in Saturday’s A$1 million Ladbrokes Caulfield Stakes (2000m) has confirmed Black Heart Bart (Blackfriars) as a two-time winner of the New Zealand Bloodstock Caulfield WFA Championship.

The outstanding galloper won his first NZB Caulfield WFA Championship title in the spring of 2016, when he was at the peak of his powers and won the Group One Memsie Stakes (1400m) and Underwood Stakes (1800m).


All the keyboard warriors went to town on him for not being able to enjoy retirement. They certainly have gone quiet now. The Warhorse has returned bigger than ever. 👌🏇🔥💪

Now a nine-year-old, he has made a remarkable comeback during the 2019 NZB Caulfield WFA Championship, winning the Underwood Stakes (1800m) at 100-to-one odds and following it up with a gallant second in Saturday’s Caulfield Stakes.

The Lindsey Smith-trained marvel finishes with a total of 19 points, five clear of Hartnell (Authorized). Mystic Journey (Needs Further), Scales of Justice (Not a Single Doubt) and the Caulfield Stakes winner Cape of Good Hope (Galileo) tie for third with 10 points each.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

I see they’re considering a Cox Plate start.
If they do, will have to pay $200,000 late acceptance fee.

Madness to fork out $200k for a late entry. He’d need to run top 4 to make a profit, or 5th to break even.

If they want to run on Cox Plate day, wouldn’t the Crystal Mile WFA 1600m be more suitable anyway?

He's picked up $632k his last 2 starts. They're fine covering the fee and seem to have him going well.

He's been labeled the John Farnham of the Australian racing industry and for the third time veteran Black Heart Bart is set to begin his 'final campaign'.

It's been confirmed the now six-time Group 1 winner will complete his last preparation in Western Australia, starting on Saturday in the G3 Amelia Park Roma Cup (1200m) at Ascot.

The nine-year-old was first retired in October 2018 before moving stables from Darren Weir to Lindsey Smith for a five-start spring campaign last year that included victory in the G1 Underwood Stakes (1800m).

The veteran then had unplaced runs this autumn in the G1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) and The All-Star Mile (1600m), and Smith says that while his best is certainly behind him, he's confident the fan favourite can claim another victory before ending his career with him.

"He'll have four more starts for me at 1200m, 1400m, 1600m and 2000m, starting this Saturday in the Roma Cup," Smith said.

"All his races will be over there and weight-for-age.

"He's doing well, he's fit and over those feet issues he's had. Obviously, his glory days are behind him but I'm hopeful he's still got another win in him.

"This Saturday look a pretty hot race, there's not too many options for him and it might be too short, but I'm expecting him to beat home at least half the field."

Black Heart Bart joins fellow G1 winners Vega Magic and Gatting in the field of 12 for Saturday's race

Black Heart Bart ran last in today's G3 Roma Cup. His time has come...needs to be retired. He is an old horse. Not sure why they are continuing to race him. Hopefully this performance will spell the end to his career. He has had a good career including six eastern states Group 1s...now its time to retire.

No matter the trainer, they've all stated his foot problems are over which in reality does not occur inside 2 years at best & whilst shod.
I fully agree retirement beckons, he's given his all
