Exciting filly Sea Siren will attempt to achieve an astonishing Brisbane sprint treble when she lines up in Saturday’s Group 1 $1 million 2012 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm.
The Fastnet Rock three-year-old has been the star of the Brisbane carnival so far, taking out the Group 1 BTC Cup and Doomben 10,000.
Trained by John O’Shea, the talented youngster has drawn well in barrier six but will have to break a weight-carrying record for three-year-old fillies when she runs at 55kg in Saturday’s feature sprint.
The youngster has already scored five victories from seven starts but she faces her toughest test yet in a strong 18-horse field.
