Tiger Tees Ready for 2012 BRC Sprint

Promising sprinter Tiger Tees is in good form heading in to the Group 3 $150,000 2012 BRC Sprint (1350m) against a 16-horse field that will contain plenty of speed.

The Joseph Pride-trained gelding was impressive last start when leading from start to finish in the Listed Hall Mark Stakes which should serve as good preparation for his first step up to Group level.

A winner of seven of 10 starts, Pride believes the four-year-old is ready to step up ahead of the Stradbroke Handicap for which he currently sits at  number 26 on the order of entry.

“He’s in great order. He’s ready to take the next step and I think he can do that,” Pride said.

Christian Reith has been on board for six of Tiger Tees’ seven wins and he will again ride him this weekend when he runs from barrier 13.

The wide draw is one obstacle the son of Dubawi will have to overcome tomorrow as is the distance as it will be hist first step up to 1350 metres.

He ran impressively in his one trial since the Hall Mark Stakes win and is currently third bookmaker.com.au favourite ($6.00) to add another victory to his resume.

Fellow in-form gelding Smokin’ Joey is the $3.70 favourite but has also drawn wide and will come from one barrier outside (14) Tiger Tees.

The Encosta De Lago four-year-old has been in sizzling form recently and was dominant last start when winning the Group 3 Victoria Handicap by 2 ½ lengths on April 7.

Also set to run is last-start winner Free Wheeling ($4.60) who won the Hawkesbury Guineas by four lengths against a field that included Pied A Terre and Landing.

The BRC Sprint will jump as the eighth race on a bumper Doomben card that is highlighted by the Group 1 $500,000 Doomben Cup.

Other card highlights include the Group 2 Champagne Classic and Queensland Oaks leadup race the Roses.
