Pecans will be aimed at the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap

Impressed by Pecans’ second Group Three win, trainer Joe Pride will now set the bar to the highest level with the mare to be aimed at the Stradbroke Handicap.

Bought by syndication company Tricolours Racing from Godolphin, Pecans won the Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1200m) at Gosford in December and proved it was no fluke with another Group Three win at Hawkesbury on Saturday.

She beat the Godolphin-owned Ghisoni in the race sponsored by the global operation, the Godolphin Crown.

“I’ve spoken to the owners and we are going to go for the Stradbroke,” Pride said.

“There’s the Group Three Dane Ripper on the same day (June 9) but why not aim for the Group One.

“She should get in with about 51 or 51 kilos and 1350 metres at Doomben will suit.

“I underestimated her. When we bought her it was to try to win a Saturday race.

“You always hope you’re buying a good one but she has amazed me.

“She’s a good, tough, lovely mare and is bright and happy after Saturday.”

Pecans will prepare for the Stradbroke in the At Sea Handicap (1100m) at Randwick on May 26.

Pride will also take proven Group One-winning sprinter Terravista to Brisbane for the Doomben 10,000 on May 12.

“He will have a barrier trial at Warwick Farm on Friday and then go to the Doomben 10,000 on Saturday week,” he said.

“It’s over 1200 metres now which suits him.

“I had been hoping to avoid Redzel but I see he is now going there as well.”

The winner of the 2014 Darley Classic and 2017 Lightning Stakes, Terravista ran second to Redzel in the Darley Classic in the spring.

Nominations for the Group One winter carnival races in Brisbane close on Tuesday morning.
