Last season’s $1 million Stradbroke Handicap winner Sincero continued his success at Warwick Farm last Saturday by winning the 2011 Tramway Quality Handicap.
Jockey Chris O’Brien was aboard Sincero as he surged to the lead and held on against a late charge from Secret Admirer.
“He probably just got tired the last 50 (metres) but he will take immense improvement out of it,” O’Brien said.
“He was probably only about 80 per cent right today so going into the spring, that was good.
“Melbourne here we come.”
Trainer Stephen Farley will now plan a spring program for Sincero that will include the 2011 Cox Plate.
‘I’m getting this bloke ready for 2000 metres and I need to know where the races are going to be in the next week,” Farley said.
”I have to organise a trip to Melbourne if the George Main and Epsom aren’t going to be at Randwick.
“We might think about the Epsom if it was over 1800m at Rosehill but we need to know.
“I think everyone wants the decision made quickly.”
