Amorette Kramer, the girl you talk to at the Summerhill horse office and who greets you with such enthusiasm when you visit, was in touch with Paul Gadsby earlier this week for a report on Black Wing’s preparation for his meeting with destiny in the Daily News 2000 (Gr.1) tomorrow.
Here’s the report :
“Saturday will be Black Wing’s acid test, as he comes up against the best of his contemporaries. I’ve always thought he was Group One material, and a good run on Saturday will confirm my opinion of him. We’re saddled with the outside draw, sadly, but there’s nothing we can do about that, and we only hope he makes the money. We’ve lost his regular rider, Shaun Veale, to injury, but we have a capable replacement in Ian Sturgeon. The horse couldn’t be better in himself, and he’s champing at the bit for his big day”.
