2013 Brisbane Winter Warm-up for Wealth Princess in Wangoom Handicap

Wealth Princess can head to the 2013 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival with momentum on her side if she can repeat her 2012 performance in today’s 2013 Wangoom Handicap (1200m) at Warrnambool.

The seven-year-old was beaten narrowly in the Warrnambool feature sprint last year and is rated a $4.60 chance to go one better in 2013.

The horse who beat her in what was her first race in nearly two years, Second Effort, also returns but some poor autumn form and the topweight of 58.5kg have him paying $13.

Wealth Princess trainer Darren Weir admits his charge isn’t “going as good as last year” and is slightly concerned about a tricky barrier 19 draw.

But Weir said it is important she has a run before heading to Brisbane, a place where she has found success in the past.

Last year the daugther of San Luis won the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes before finishing sixth on a heavy track in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes.

Wealth Princess was last seen on June 9 when she beat just one horse home in the Stradbroke Handicap.

Despite being seven years old, the quality sprinter has raced just 15 times, recording seven wins and five minor placings.

She missed the back half of 2010 and all of 2011 with a tendon problem but also won the Glenlogan Park Stakes in 2010 and finished a close second in the Group 1 Winter Stakes.

It is likely Wealth Princess will be set down a similar path this winter, tackling the top fillies and mares races in Brisbane.

Favourite in the Wangoom Handicap today is That’s The One ($4) who is coming off a first-up second in the Yarraville Handicap at Flemington.
