Black Heart Bart out of G1 Orr Stakes

Friday 9 February 2018, 1:08pm

Defending champion Black Heart Bart has been scratched from the Group One C F Orr Stakes with a foot issue.

It leaves premier Victorian trainer Darren Weir with two runners in Saturday's 1400m weight-for-age feature at Caulfield, headlined by $4 favourite Tosen Stardom and Brave Smash, an $8 chance.

The C F Orr Stakes is the first Group One race of 2018 in Australia and Black Heart Bart's scratching on Friday leaves a field of 13.
