Locally owned and trained Galactic Panther faces a tough task tomorrow night at Angle Park in the first semi-final of the Group 3 Howard Ashton final (515 m).
Owned by Robert Chuck and trained at Worrolong by Steve Bartholomew, Galactic Panther has drawn box two in a field that includes boom youngster Victa Louise, along with Abuzz, Tal Lee and Springvale Choix.
With two $2515-to-the-winner semi-finals to be decided, the first four from each semi will advance to next week’s $37,500 final.
Bartholomew also has Azumi Spice, an impressive 400 metre winner at Tara Raceway last Sunday, engaged from box six in a grade six over 515 metres.
