3/12/2018 Wyong likely for Bel Sonic

In-form trainer Jason Warren plans to send first-up winner Bel Sonic (Bel Esprit) to Wyong for the Magic Millions 3&4YO Stakes (1200m) ahead of a planned Queensland campaign culminating in a Gold Coast assignment next month. Bel Sonic resumed with a victory at Ballarat in the Magic Millions 3&4YO Classic (1100m) on November 24, cementing interstate goals. Warren said the fallback option, if there was rain, was to run at Flemington over 1100 metres on December 15 instead of going to Wyong, before turning attention to Queensland. "He has come through the run at Ballarat well and he's going well," Warren said. "I think this is the best we've had him in a long time. The horse is thriving. We'll probably go to the Gold Coast (after his next start) and base ourselves there for the Magic Millions. There is a lead-up race at Doomben two weeks out and he may run in that as well."
