2013 Brisbane Winter Carnival Targets for Ferlax

Australian Guineas winner Ferlax has had his Sydney Autumn Carnival cut short and he will now be freshened up before a tilt at the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

The Jim Conlan-trained colt had just one start in Sydney, a seventh in the Randwick Guineas, where he was galloped on and suffered significant bruising.

Conlan said he will spend three weeks recuperating before coming back into work ahead of his first-up Brisbane assignment in the Group 3 2013 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben in May.

How Ferlax performs in the Fred Best will determine whether he takes on his own age group in the Group 2 2013 Queensland Guineas (1600m) or gets a shot in the $1 million 2013 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Both races take place at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Conlan said the Pentire colt deserves a break after a long preparation.

“Since he got here last June he’s only ever had about 10 days off, so he has done a great job and certainly deserves a little break,” Conlan said.

The three-year-old added his name to Australia’s outstanding crop of three-year-olds when producing an upset result in the Group 1 Australian Guineas earlier this month.

The Guineas win came on the back of wins at Echuca, Benalla and Sale to begin his career.

His overall record stands at four wins from five starts with a prize pool of $337,000.

The Brisbane Carnival begins in May and the BRC are still hopeful of it being one of the biggest yet, buoyed by the attendance of Black Caviar.

Brisbane was in the box seat to host the final leg of a farewell tour for the great mare but connections are now also eyeing a return to Royal Ascot.
