Tristarc Stakes 2013 Tips & Selections

A nice lead-up to the Group 1 Myer Classic over the Flemington mile next month, on Saturday a field of classy mares will face off on Caulfield Cup Day in the 2013 Tristarc Stakes– betting selections for which are listed below.

Held just one event before the classic $2.5 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) brings the day’s action to a close, the $220,000 Group 2 Yellowglen Tristarc Stakes (1400m) is scheduled as Caulfield Race 9 to jump at 4:55pm (AEST).

It’s attracted a bumper field too with 16 starters plus four emergencies that are out to prove their 2013 Myer Classic potential for the Melbourne Cup Carnival in the first week of November.

Two mares are currently battling for top spot in the Tristarc Stakes odds with the John Thompson-trained Peron ($4.40) currently winning the war.

Drawn in gate two, moving onto the rails if the emergencies fail to get a run, with veteran hoop Jim Cassidy to ride the talented Husson four-year-old is third-up for the season following two very nice second place finishes.

The first was to Driefontein in the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) in Sydney before she stepped up in distance in Melbourne for the Group 2 Blazer Stakes (1410m) where there was just a quarter length separating her and the winner Fire Up Fifi.

Second pick for Saturday at a close quote of $4.80 is then the top-rated Red Tracer, Chris Waller’s Group 1 champion having defeated Peron by five lengths in the Tattersall’s Tiara over this distance in Brisbane back in June.

Drawn in gate nine (into seven) the Dane Shadow six-year-old is second-up here having been defeated just a long neck when runner-up to Sharnee Rose in the Group 3 Golden Pendant (1400m) on September 28.

The other top fancies for the Tristarc Stakes then include Golden Pendant third placed Bennetta ($9), the John O’Shea-trained Steps In Time ($11) coming off a third in the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes at Flemington behind Platelet, and Phillip Stokes’ Adelaide raider Molto Bene ($12) who shoots for her third win on the trot.

So are these mares the ones to beat? Or can a longer priced outsider such as New Zealand Group 1 winner Xanadu ($14), the Rob Heathcote-trained Fire Up Fifi ($14) or Peter Snowden’s last start Caulfield winner Aerobatics ($15) get the job done?


#1 Red Tracer ($4.80)

She carries two kilos more than Peron here under the conditions but think Waller’s runner is the class horse and one to beat here. Will come into gate seven with emergencies out giving jockey Nash Rawiller options, won’t get caught in traffic in this big field. She won the Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara over this distance easily in the winter for her second on the trot from barrier 16, then looked like she’d come back in terrific order with her close second first-up a few weeks back. Should have improved fitness wise since then, this is her pet distance, third in this race last year behind Streama so Caulfield suits and she’s out to improve on that.


#14 Peron ($4.40)

It’s going to be a tight finish without much between them is our guess, Peron to give them all a real challenge and something to chase. Thompson’s Husson mare should be ready to strike after two perfect lead-up runs, including over this distance last time out. She was drawn wide there with Rawiller aboard. She’ll have to be racing up front to stay out of trouble from the inside draw and loses Rawiller to Red Tracer – but Cassidy makes a fine replacement.


#4 Fire Up Fifi ($14)

Brisbane raider was a shocking 12th first-up in the Sheraco Stakes before big improvement from the genuine miler to win the Blazer Stakes. She did that from barrier 15 of 16 so gate 10 (into eight) wil be a dream for her here.
