Three black type races will light up the track in the end of season winter meet including the $100,000 Listed XXXX Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m) which has drawn the most entries of the trio of Listed features.

A number of last-start winners have earned a shot at the Sunshine Coast Guineas this year.

Some of the more notable youngsters coming off a turf triumph include local hope Bushy undefeated in their two runs to date both achieved this month, Call Me Rusty who also comes off back-to-back wins both at this track, smart Casino Prince filly Casino Card after her fifth win in the past six starts, and the Trevor Miller-trained Last Bet.

There are a number of other classy interstate raiders also in the mix for the Sunshine Coast Guineas looking to stop the onslaught of locals including the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel gelding Dances On Stars who was a close second to Sizzling in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) before their surprisingly failure beaten 16 lengths in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich last start, and Mick Price’s Caulfield-based Exceed And Excel gelding Eximius who caught the eye when second to Academus in the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Also coming via the Daybreak Lover Stakes from Stradbroke Day is the David Kelly-trained runner-up Lucky Hussler from the Gold Coast who was also an eye-catching third in the Queensland Guineas.

The Husson gelding is also a Group 3 winner when prepared by Kent Fleming last year to win the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1350m) during the summer.

Last year’s locally based winning trainer Len Treloar who won with Tuskegee Hawk meanwhile is back seeking successive Guineas trophies with Heartfelt Quest who was a last start winner at the Sunshine Coast all-weather cushion track back in May.

The complete list of Sunshine Coast 2013 nominations are detailed below.
