Belmont Winner for Shanghai Bobby

Shanghai Bobby’s run of promising winners at major tracks continued at Belmont on Saturday with a dominant win for Sparky (3c Shanghai Bobby x Handlewoman, by Elusive Quality).

Having his third start, the James Toner trained colt was strong at the finish powering clear to win the six furlong turf maiden running away.

A half-brother to stakes-placed Awesome Woman from stakes-placed Handlewoman, Sparky is one of a flurry of smart recent winners for Shanghai Bobby including Shang Shang Shang, Shanghai Starlet, Shangroyal, Shanghai Tariff and Shanghaied Roo.
