Dual Kiwi Group 1 winner Sacred Star gets his chance to win a Queensland Winter Carnival feature race and will find the Glasshouse Handicap a lot easier than his last start fifth to Under The Louvre in the Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11.

Caulfield trainer Robert Smerdon is hoping to get Odyssey Moon to Queensland this week for the Glasshouse Handicap after he had to scratch the three year from last Saturday’s Healy Stakes when his plane from Melbourne was cancelled.
