ASTUTE horseman Chris Bourke has channelled his inner Doris Day ahead of tonight’s Club Menangle meeting.
Although he nominated a pacer for the main mares’ race, Bourke’s entrant was made the emergency and relegated to a lower prizemoney event which includes male opposition.
Bourke’s reaction to the news was a simple “whatever will be!”
“There’s no point in getting worked up over these things,” Bourke said. “It is what it is.
“It would’ve been nice to be in the higher staked race, but at least she’s still racing.”
As such Que Sera will compete in the $13,260 Pace over 1609 metres.
To be driven by Dan Morgan, Que Sera has drawn barrier four, but slots into three with the removal of the emergency.
“I’m happy with the way she is going but she has her work cut out for her,” Bourke said.
“She’s drawn to get a reasonable trip and hopefully she can make the most of it.”
Despite finishing towards the tail of the field during her two starts from a long spell, Platinum Revolution is a short-priced favourite for trainer Jason Grimson.
The daughter of Changeover is at $1.80 from barrier two.
“Platinum Revolution has a pretty good record overall and is bound to improve after a couple of runs this time in,” Bourke.
