The Queensland winter carnival remains firmly on the radar of the multiple stakes winner Prom Queen.

“She’s fine and she’ll likely kick off in mid-April, there’s a race at Te Rapa for her and a week later one at Doomben, but we’ll give her a trial first and take it from there,” co-trainer Kenny Rae said.

Prom Queen has won eight of her 11 starts, four of them at black type level, and was fourth last time out in the Group 3 Bonecrusher Stakes (1400m).

“She had four or five weeks off. She’s come back a bit bigger and stronger,” Rae said.
