Australian Racing: Sierra Sue to remain at 1400 metres

Sierra Sue is set to head for the C.F. Orr Stakes this weekend and will not go for the All-Star Mile as she drops back in trip.

The Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young-trained mare will be targeted at Group 1 contests over 1400 metres and is a 16/1 chance for the feature race on Saturday.

Sierra Sue showing signs of promise

A daughter of Darci Brahma, Sierra Sue won the Peter Lawrence Stakes in August before gaining her biggest success to date in the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes just two starts later.

She was then stepped up to 1600 metres, finishing last in the Toorak Handicap before finishing tenth in the Empire Rose Stakes, and will be raced over her preferred 1400-metre trip this campaign.

Busuttin outlines plans

"I think she's a seven-furlong filly," Busuttin said. "Everyone's talking about the All-Star Mile, but the C F Orr, it's a Group 1 worth $750,000 and I don't think you need to look too much further than it.

"We'll look at the Futurity two weeks later, that would be the next logical race I would presume."

The five-year-old scored a jump-out win at Cranbourne last week, defeating I'm Thunderstruck, and Busuttin said she was in good shape leading up to her first outing.

"She's not going to present 100 per cent fit, but I think 90 per cent of the field will be the same," Busuttin said.
