Sea Siren In Doubt For 2012 Stradbroke Handicap Run

Sea Siren is still yet to be confirmed for the 2012 Stradbroke Handicap this weekend at Eagle Farm racecourse.

The three-year-old filly, who is currently the $5.50 favourite for the race at bookmaker.com.au, will have to contest with a rain affected track should she run in the 2012 Stradbroke Handicap.

Trainer John O’Shea is unsure whether Sea Siren will run based on current conditions.

Sea Siren is in doubt for the 2012 Stradbroke Handicap.

“There are a lot of variables we have to take into consideration,” O’Shea said.

“There is the make-up of the field, the state of the track, and how we are going.”

Sea Siren has won both her starts during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, with the first being in the Group 1 BTC Cup at Doomben Racecourse on May 12, 2012.

The Fastnet Rock filly has since gone on to make it back to back Group 1 victories with a win in the $650,000 Doomben 10,000 last start.

O’Shea will look to gallop Sea Siren tomorrow morning before making his final 2012 Stradbroke Handicap decision.

“We need to give her another gallop and hopefully we can get a surface to work on – that will be important,” O’Shea said.

“But if we don’t get to gallop her, we might have to wait until Wednesday to find a surface she can gallop on and then make a final decision on the Stradbroke.”

The trainer has appreciated the help of the Brisbane Racing Club, who have done all they can to facilitate Sea Siren’s acceptance in the 2012 Stradbroke Handicap.

“I’m very appreciative of the BRC and how accommodating they have been but the weather hasn’t helped,” he said.

“They gave us permission to work her at Doomben on the course proper (Saturday morning) and I was really happy with how the filly went.”
