Barakey returns to racing Sunday when he steps out in the Listed $125,000 Northam Stakes at Northam.
A brilliant winner of 13 of 16 starts, Barakey has been working very strongly leading into Sunday’s race.

This will be her last campaign before heading to the breeding barn.
New trainer Rob Blacker has reported that she has trialled well and is keen in her work. “Her workload and environment is varied and interesting. The cooler climate, increased moisture in her working surfaces, plus swimming has decreased the concussion load on her legs.”
Former WA galloper Mr Utopia has been nominated for the $150,000 Wangoom Handicap at Warnambool next Wednesday. The former Steve Wolfe trained galloper was super impressive winning at his first Victorian start for new trainer Robert Smerdon.
