2014 Glenlogan Park Stakes Winner Srikandi Stradbroke Bound

Ciaron Maher’s talented filly Srikandi continued her outstanding rise through the ranks with a win in today’s Glenlogan Park Stakes 2014 at Doomben Racecourse in the perfect Stradbroke Handicap trial.

It looks all systems go for the three-year-old daughter of Dubawi to take on the older horses in Queensland’s richest race, the $1.36 million Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 7 after her all-too-easy Doomben 10,000 Day win.

Srikandi jumped favourite in today’s $150,000 Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) having won five of her six previous starts including her past two on the trot in the Sunshine State.

The visiting Victorian kept the good times rolling then handling a wide gate, more weight and a step up in distance without issue.

After a two and a half length victory over La Pieta in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) in the wet at the Gold Coast two back, Srikandi was last seen winning by the same margin in the Listed Junamo Stakes (1200m) just last Saturday.

Jockey Glen Boss, aboard for both of those wins, was full of praise after the Junamo but still wasn’t sure about the filly’s true ability.

Some of his questions then were answered today with her impressive Glenlogan effort where Srikandi went up from 54kg seven days ago to the 57kg here.

“Today was the day to see if she’s the real deal,” Boss said.

“Outside draw, burned across quickly to lead. I wanted to find out a bit about her so I let her roll.

“Jeez that turn of foot…that’s electric.”

She also had barrier 13 of 14 to overcome, Boss never panicking and giving her the time she needed to relax and get into the right position to win.

“When she got clear, the body just relaxed and her demeanor changed, she had no company no competition,” Boss said.

And win she did putting another big margin on the Luke Price-trained Belle De Coeur ($12) who came from near last to snare second down the outside from third placed Platinum Rocker ($4) who held onto a place in the trifecta after sitting on Srikandi’s back throughout.

The fact a well performed older mare like Simon Miller’s Group 1 Perth performer Platinum Rocker had the run of the race but still couldn’t get near the winner is further credit to Srikandi’s ability and her possible 2014 Stradbroke Handicap chances.

Srikandi never looked like getting beaten either right from the start when she flew out of the gates out wide and ran up lead from Northern Glory and Platinum Rocker who had a lovely run third on the fence.

On the straight with 350m left to go Srikandi kicked away well and even though Belle De Coeur came hard and fast down the outside, they couldn’t catch the runaway winner who strolled across in the end.

“She’s starting to get that leather chestnut colour about her so she’s thriving up here,” Boss added.

“I love the way she applies herself. She does the right thing.

“She’s tough and she’s a bit angry. You’ve got to have that little bit of mongrel.

“Whatever she goes onto…they’ve got a very, very exciting filly.”

Maher put her into today’s race with the intention of seeing whether the Group 1 at Eagle Farm was worth proper consideration.

It certainly looks that way now with Maher confirming that so long as the horse came through the race well they would be accepting for the Stradbroke.

“So long as she’s fit and well and trains on then I think we will [go to the Stradbroke],” he said.

“It’s a nice smooth program in.

“She paraded better today and she looked better in the coat.

“She’s just thriving up here and loving it.”

Another plus for Srikandi looking at a Stradbroke Handicap start will be her likely minimum weight for the classic.

“I think they said she’d get the minimum and that’s 50.5kg,” Maher said.

“Nothing really worries her. She’s a real straightforward filly who’s just thriving.”
