Queensland officials will make it a priority to lure Perth star Scales of Justice to Brisbane for the $1.5 million Group One Stradbroke Handicap.

Scales of Justice is the second favourite to add Saturday’s Kingston Town Classic at Ascot to his Group One win in the Railway Stakes.

The gelding is part-owned by Brisbane’s Bill Andrews, a former Queensland rugby union player and solicitor, who has raced many handy horses in several states.

Scales of Justice has won seven of his 13 starts and already earned $945,000 prize money.

Brisbane Racing Club racing manager Bart Sinclair said the Stradbroke (1400m) in June was an ideal race for Scales of Justice.

“Bill is away on holiday in the bush and not in mobile phone range. But we will make it a priority to contact him after the Kingston Town Classic about getting Scales of Justice here,” Sinclair said.

“The Stradbroke has always been a race for horses who can run a strong 1600 metres and Scales of Justice fills that need.”

West Australian horses rarely come to Queensland for the winter carnival but from limited numbers have had plenty of success over the years.

Barossa Boy (Doomben 10,000, BTC Cup, BRC Sprint), Muros (Brisbane Cup), Scenic Shot (Doomben Cup, O’Shea Stakes), Pago King (BTC Classic), Fair Sir (BTC Classic) and Aquinita (Doomben 10,0000), are among Perth horses to have won in Brisbane.

Andrews also part-owns Feltre who was an eye-catching third in his return to racing in the Listed Recognition Stakes on Saturday.
