Battle Force by Act Of War, victorious last year in the Gr1 Golden Horse Sprint, heads a full field of 16 as he bids to defend his crown at Hollywoodbets Scottsville on Saturday, June 4.
It will be a tough task as last year he carried bottom weight, this year he is at the top of the handicap where there is only 4kg separating top from bottom to conform to international Gr1 conditions.
This year’s race will be a tight contest.
The Golden Horse has attracted the country’s top sprinters and forms the last leg of the Gr1 quartet, along with the Allan Robertson and Gold Medallion and the SA Fillies Sprint.
All four races have attracted top class entries in what will be a smashing day’s racing. #kznbred Bartholdi by Act Of War and a half-brother to Gr1 winner Bohica will take on Battle Force in the Gr1 Gold Medallion, whilst #kznbred 2021 Gr1 Allan Robertson winner, Under Your Spell, takes on champion Captain’s Ransom in the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic.
Spring Valley born and raised for breeder Richard Fitzgerald, Winter Smoke, also lines up in the Gr1 SA Fillies Classic.
