Bryan Smart loses Delectation
Bryan Smart could not hide his disappointment after revealing Delectation had been moved away from his yard.
Delectation (r) has been transferred to Germany
Unbeaten in two races and an impressive winner of the Group Three Firth of Clyde Stakes at Ayr last month, she was due to run in France recently but was withdrawn the day before after Smart was not happy with her blood count.
The Hambleton trainer was treating Delectation as a 1000 Guineas contender but her Australian owner Jamie Lovett has made the decision to take her away.
"I've lost my good filly, Delectation," said Smart.
"We sold her to an Australian with the hope she'd be staying with us.
"Unfortunately he's taken her away to Germany. I think he's gone to Andreas Wohler."
