The 2016 Racing Queensland UBET winter carnival is fast approaching and in the coming weeks, Queensland harness broadcaster Chris Barsby will profile a number of major players vying for the top prizes.

With 18 Black Type races on the program for the 2016 Winter Carnival, the carnival’s pinnacle in 2016 is the G1 Blacks A Fake, which now boasts an impressive $200,000 in stakes.

The carnival spans from May 28 to July 30.

Here’s a profile featuring an up and coming three-year-old colt that is being aimed at the Queensland Derby next month.

Name: Brallos Pass

Stable Name: Frankie

Age: 3yo colt

Owner: Neil & Mal Lennie

Trainer: Mark Watson

Driver: Nathan Jack

Prizemoney: $120,432

Biggest win: South Australia Derby

Target: Gr.1 $75,000 Queensland Derby (July 16)

Trainer says: “He’s a high quality colt with great potential, from the very beginning of his career he displayed natural ability and he’s been a pleasure to train. His speed is his biggest asset, whether he’s in front or sitting with cover he can be lethal and he’s still improving in that respect. His form this season has been outstanding and with a bit more luck, things could be a little different. He’s proven he’s up with the best going around.”

Barsby says: “An impressive performer with an impressive record, dominated in the SA Derby while performing at a very high level in both the Victoria and New South Wales Derby series, barrier draws haven’t been all that kind either. His stylish looks are matched by his brilliant turn of foot, can really rip a good quarter. Performing well in the Vicbred series and he’ll carry plenty of support in the Queensland Derby.”
