Sea Siren will kick off her spring in the Manikato Stakes on October 26

The four-year-old’s spring campaign was believed to be in doubt following speculation she would be sold in a stud deal but the owners rejected the offer.

Sea Siren, who boasts a record of five wins from eight starts, was one of the stars of the Brisbane winter carnival when she won both the Group 1 BTC Cup and the Doomben 10,000.

In the Doomben 10,000 she beat Queensland star Buffering who was a close second when returning from a stonebruise injury.

The connections’ decision to continue racing Sea Siren this spring sets up a mouth watering clash in the Manikato Stakes where the John O’Shea-trained mare will again attempt to beat Robert Heathcote’s stable star.

Owner Keith Biggs is confident Sea Siren can continue her early career form that has seen her collect over $860,000 in prizemoney.

“I think we’ll have a good next 12 months with her,” Biggs said.

“Hopefully she comes back as good as she was last time in…she’s all set for the Manikato.”

Sea Siren was today announced as one of 23 initial acceptors for the Manikato Stakes which will be held at Moonee Valley on October 26.

Joining Sea Siren and Buffering in the group is in-form filly Snitzerland, Tony Gollan-trained pair Temple Of Boom and Spirit Of Boom, Shorts winner Pampelonne, Darley sprinter Mental and Joe Pride-trained gelding Tiger Tees.

A notable absence from Manikato acceptances is fellow Joe Pride-trained sprinter Rain Affair who has been sent to the paddock after failing in two spring starts.
