Black Heart Bart, Vega Magic & Gatting Accept For Saturday

The last Ascot race meeting for season 2019/2020 will see three very familiar names among the acceptances for the feature Group Three Amelia Park-Roma Cup on Saturday.

Veteran Black Heart Bart (six time group one winner) returns west and faces off against another galloper heading back home in Vega Magic (two group one victories) along with Gatting who took out the 2019 Group One Makybe Diva Stakes at 100/1 when defying the short favourite Mystic Journey.

The Group One Goodwood takes center stage at Morphettville on Saturday and there is a flavor from that race present here with both Black Heart Bart (2016) and Vega Magic (2017) past winners of that famous Adelaide sprint.

Run over 1200 metres and under weight-for-age conditions, the Roma Cup has seen the likes of popular Western Australian galloper Luckgray and Rock Magic as two mutiple winners of this event.
