May 18, 202 Hansen eyeing Stradbroke with Pennino

Trainer Darryl Hansen has his sights fixed on the Stradbroke Handicap (Gr 1, 1400m) for recent impressive winner Pennino (Easy Rocking). The mare was well backed before a bloodless victory in the Chef De Beers Handicap (Listed, 1000m) and Hansen is now plotting a route to the Eagle Farm showpiece. "We have her in the Stradbroke and we'll look for another race for her to make certain she can get in," Hansen said. "She handles all tracks and rain on Stradbroke day would be no set back."
