Brisbane Race Club officials are confident a change of track for the Group Three Fred Best Classic will not impact on its reputation as a great form race.

There has been much debate about the Doomben 10,000 moving from Doomben to Eagle Farm to give that track three meetings in a row next winter.

It is more likely the Fred Best Classic and BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes will be run on May 27 along with a revamped Group One BTC Cup at Eagle Farm instead of the 10,000.

The Fred Best, a race for three-year-olds which is usually run over 1350 metres at Doomben in May, has been a consistent guide to future races.

It produced three winners at Eagle Farm on Saturday in Perfect Dare, Fiery Heights and Too Good To Refuse, who all raced well in the Fred Best last winter.

Other horses to come out of the 16-horse Fred Best to later win races include Takeover, Rageese, Tivaci, Privlaka, Sir Bacchus, Sold For Song, In His Stride and Right Advise.

The Fred Best winner Counterattack has been Group Two placed twice since that success.

BRC Chairman Neville Bell said a 1400m Fred Best at Eagle Farm would be the perfect lead-up to the Group One Stradbroke Handicap or Group Two Queensland Guineas a fortnight later.

Trainer Toby Edmonds, who prepared Fiery Heights for Saturday’s Eagle Farm win, agreed the Fred Best was now one of the top guides for winter carnival racing.

“It really has been a very good race over the years and this year it has again proved to be a good form guide to the future,” he said.
