Brisbane may take precedence for Rageese
12 May 2016 | By NZ Racing Desk

In-form colt Rageese (Street Cry) may stay at home this weekend with a trip to Queensland in mind.

Raced by Windsor Park Stud with Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum, Rageese is among the acceptances for Saturday’s Listed Adelaide Guineas, but he could be kept on ice by trainer Darren Weir.

The Victorian trainer has the A$1.5 million Gr. 1 Stradbroke Handicap at Eagle Farm on June 11 as a target, and victory in Saturday week’s Gr. 3 Fred Best Classic at Doomben would clinch a spot in Queensland’s most famous race as the winner is exempt from ballot.

Rageese is unbeaten in two starts since joining Weir’s stable, including a victory in the Listed Nitschke Stakes at Morphettville last time out.
