Multiple Group 1 winner Black Heart Bart will not be seen again during the Autumn with trainer Darren Weir opting to put the horse out with the Spring in mind.
Black Heart Bart has been troubled with a heel issue this preparation and connections have opted to pull the pin on his Autumn plans and focus on the Spring carnival with him.
Trainer @DKWeirRacing has decided to spell Black Heart Bart with time running out to get the horses feet back 100%. While the soreness is now out of the foot … The heel is still troublesome. Best option is to spell and get right for Spring.
