Red Tracer in Good Shape for Queensland Raid

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller is looking forward to the Brisbane return of his reigning Tattersall’s Tiara winner Red Tracer following the smart mare’s winning Sydney trial this morning.

The daughter of Dane Shadow has run in the past two editions of the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), the Eagle Farm classic again on the agenda for the now six-year-old this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

In 2012 she finished just half a length away fourth behind Pear Tart before returning last year to overcome barrier 16 of 16 and wide ride to take it out by two and a half lengths over this year’s Doomben Cup champ Streama.

The Tatt’s win last year came on the back of a Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes victory at the same track and distance, also won from barrier 16, a fortnight before.

This year however Waller is looking at giving Red Tracer, now a dual Group 1 champion following her Myer Classic triumph in Melbourne during the spring, the chance to add not one but two more elite level trophies to the cabinet.

Instead of the Dane Ripper, where Waller’s fellow Tattersall’s Tiara-bound mare Catkins is set to run, he’s looking at a start in the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 7 for Red Tracer so long as the track isn’t too firm.

She was last seen running third under a length off Diamond Drille in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in Sydney on April 19, a race Streama ran third in before her Hollindale Stakes – Doomben Cup double to see out her track career.

Red Tracer then won a Warwick Farm trial on May 19 before making it two trial victories on the trot this morning at Rosehill Gardens.

Waller’s champ took out the opening hit-out over 1030m in a time of 1:04.50 defeating All That I Am by nearly a length, an effort that impressed jockey Nash Rawiller.

“She was great,” Rawiller said on Tuesday.

“There was no pace on early in the trial so I took my time and as soon as she found a backside she relaxed beautifully.

“Gee she towed me up the running and I love the way she has been jumping in her last two trials.

“I’m much happier with her in her last couple of trials compared with her during the autumn.

“I think her confidence copped a dent when she was badly checked and nearly fell in the Canterbury Stakes [when third to Appearance in mid-March].

“Every indication she’s given me in her last couple of trials tells me she’s in good shape for Queensland.”

Futures Stradbroke Handicap 2014 betting is led by in-form filly Srikandi ($4.60) the late entry likely to be ridden by Glen Boss on the minimum weight of 50.5kg.

Red Tracer meanwhile is at $13 to take it out, slightly longer than her younger stable mate Catkins who was last seen running sixth in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
