Talented filly Red Tracer could be Stradbroke Handicap bound with Chris Waller to consider the Brisbane Group One option following her win in the James H B Carr Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

Red Tracer ($2.50) was sent out favourite in the 1400m Listed race on a heavy track and travelled sweetly in the run before coming away on the line to defeat Flokkati ($15) by 1-1/2-lengths with Potions ($14) a neck away third.

Waller backed off Red Tracer earlier in the autumn and freshened her up in a move that has paid dividends with the filly winning the P J Bell Stakes and James H B Carr Stakes in consecutive starts.

Connections bypassed the Group One Coolmore Classic in March but Red Tracer could now get her chance at the elite level in the Stradbroke (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11.

“We could look at the Stradbroke, and three-year-old fillies have a great record in that race,” Waller said.

“But she is not a very big filly, she’s only fragile, and the fillies that have won the Stradbroke have been big, strong fillies.

“It takes her a few days to get over her runs and that’s why we decided not to have a go at the Coolmore Classic earlier this preparation.

“I have no doubts she’ll be a good filly in the spring and if you go to the Stradbroke it doesn’t give you a big break before the spring. I have to remember that she’s only a baby still and we’ll consider that when making our decision.”

The Randwick track was downgraded to a heavy (8) for the start of Sydney Cup day and after the running of the first race, the James H B Carr Stakes, it was downgraded again to a heavy (9).

“It’s like racing on a wet sponge,” leading jockey Corey Brown, rider of the unplaced Palomares, said after the running of the first.

Glyn Schofield has ridden Red Tracer in her past two wins and said what she lacks in size, she makes up for in heart.

“This filly is just a load of talent,” he said.

“She’s not very big and that’s probably the one thing that’s not in her favour. But one thing she has got is lots of heart.”
