Red Tracer to Target 2013 Myer Classic

Red Tracer to Target 2013 Myer Classic

The first-up options for Chris Waller’s Tattersall’s Tiara winner Red Tracer are plentiful this weekend, and while he’s unsure exactly where she’ll kick-off, he is hoping she’ll go all the way to the Myer Classic 2013 this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

Dane Shadow mare Red Tracer has been one of the most consistent mares getting around for Waller for a number of seasons.

She was especially impressive during her autumn – winter campaign earlier this year with efforts including her Coolmore Classic and Queen Of The Turf seconds behind the Guy Walter-trained Appearance in Sydney.

Red Tracer was last seen beating home another of Walter’s Group 1 stars in Streama, first-up winner of the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Randwick this weekend just gone, who she defeated by two and a half lengths to win the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) in Brisbane on June 22.

Since then she’s had two September trials in Sydney most recently running third over 800m at Warwick Farm.

Now Waller will nominate her for a number of races around the country over the weekend as Red Tracer prepares for her spring comeback.

Among the suitable options she’ll be entered for are Friday night’s $450,000 Group 1 Moir Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley and the $400,000 Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on Sunday.

At this stage however Waller is leaning towards keeping the $1.6 million earner at home in Sydney for Rosehill’s $200,000 Group 3 Gloaming Stakes (1800m) where another clash with Appearance could be on the cards.

“We’ve tossed up going to Melbourne with her but at the moment we’ll stick to this race which we earmarked for her with Nash Rawiller to ride,” Waller said according to AAP.

“It’s 1400 metres first-up but she’s had two trials so she is fit enough.

If all goes to plan Red Tracer will eventually be sent to Melbourne as Waller eyes off a run in the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday November 2, a race she was a disappointing 10th behind Appearance to last year.

However Waller said he wouldn’t push Red Tracer for a big spring favouring instead to keep her fresh for next year’s Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival where another shot at the $400,000 Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill in April is on the cards.

“We plan to give her a soft spring and maybe go to the Myer Classic,” he said.

“But the focus is on the autumn and the Queen Of The Turf again.”
