Walter’s Tattersall’s Tiara 2013 Duo

This Saturday Guy Walter could launch a double pronged attack on the season’s final Group 1 race with quality mares Streama and Skyerush set to face off in the 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

On Monday there were 29 early nominations for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), two of which represent the Sydney-based Walter.

Star Stratum four-year-old Streama will be given her chance of securing a third Group 1 title before a pending retirement to the breeding barn following her excellent third behind Linton and Buffering in the Stradbroke Handicap last start.

Run over the 1400m at Eagle Farm just like the Tiara, Streama charged home in her first run in 49 days following some big autumn runs back home including her fourth from a horror gate in the mud at Randwick for the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Having pulled through Queensland’s richest race well Walter made the decision to press onto the Tattersall’s Tiara with Streama who vies for her first turf triumph since the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield last October.

“Streama will wear the blinkers like she did in the Stradbroke,” Walter said.

“I’m a little worried she might not have as much dash backing up after two weeks but she also deserves her chance.”

She’s also gunning to become a triple Group 1 winner following victories in the 2011 Flight Stakes and 2012 Australian Oaks as a three-year-old.

Streama will be joined in the Tattersall’s Tiara field then by stablemate Skyerush who Walter also believes is worthy of a shot at Group 1 glory.

The veteran Super Jet seven-year-old hasn’t raced since April 27 when she won the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1600m) for the second straight year, that victory her third form a four run Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign.

Skyerush has contested four Group 1 races over her seasons on the track including her very close second behind the John Thompson-trained Pear Tart in last year’s Tattersall’s Tiara when defeated just a long neck.

“She’s a seven-year-old mare now and whether she will come back next season is not certain,” Walter said.

“But she deserves a chance to get a Group One.”

Last year’s Tattersall’s Tiara third placegetter Red Tracer and Yosei (fourth) who also won the 2011 edition were both also entered for this weekend’s edition.
