Queensland Day Stakes 2023 Preview

Track: Good Weather: Fine

Open race. Golden Boom was a strong winner last start and can go on with things here. Red Card should land on the speed and give another bold sight while Written In Code was very strong to the line and maps for a nice run. Ekaterina will be closing hard on them and Stroll goes in the mix.
