Scarlett Lady May Be a Derby Starter

Connections of Queensland Oaks winning filly Scarlett Lady remain undecided as to whether their boom filly will go up against the boys in the Queensland Derby.

Scarlett Lady produced a stunning turn of foot in the Queensland Oaks to put paid to her rivals, and straight after the race the question was being asked: Will she race in the Queensland Derby?

However Graham Rogerson, who co-trains the horse with his wife Debbie remained coy on the subject.

“She is an amazing filly. She has a wonderful constitution the way she can come through her races.

“We don’t have to make a decision (on the Derby) today. For the moment the signs are positive but I’ll watch her over the next couple of days then we’ll talk about the Derby.” Rogerson said.

Although Rogerson’s remarks about the filly left many feeling as if he is confident that she could win the Derby if she was entered.

“She’s a freak and could be anything. She could go on to do something very special. She just keeps getting better and better,” said Rogerson.

While Rogerson would not give a clue either way it is believed Scarlett Lady’s owner Max Whitby prefers the option of spelling the filly so she can be prepared for the bigger races in the Spring Carnival.

It was also a big day for Scarlett Lady’s sire, Savabeel who had his first Group One winner.

The former Cox Plate winner has been struggling for major winners but this is sure to help his stud value.

“I’m very happy for her (Scarlett Lady’s) sire, Savabeel, as it’s his first Group One winner as well,” said Rogerson.

The Rogerson’s have a very strong hand in the Queensland Derby and will also saddle up Shootoff.

Rogerson confirmed that Shootoff will have a gallop in Sydney on Tuesday morning before and be floated to the Gold Coast later that night.

Shootoff and Scarlett Lady are joint favourites for the Queensland Derby at $4.60.
