Petrovic calls for V’landys to revamp Queanbeyan like he has Sydney

Petrovic was full of praise for V’landys, who came up with the $14 million Everest – the world’s richest race on turf – and has brought more prizemoney than ever into NSW racing.

“We just don’t have enough racing at Queanbeyan. When I first started out we had 26 meetings,” he said.

“It’s a bit disappointing what Racing NSW have done, but what can you do.

“Somebody should do something about it. If we don’t talk about it I don’t think Mr V’landys knows that we exist.”

Petrovic was hoping for a Quiano Queen and Onsettling Down quinella.


He said Onsettling Down had performed well in Sydney, where he’s had his past two starts, and he had a win in his last start on his home track five weeks ago.

Quiano Queen has been consistent, backing up a win at Queanbeyan on Boxing Day with a third and two seconds.

But she’s also been a bit of a problem child as well.

“I’m hoping they perform well tomorrow. I’ll take a quinella any day,” Petrovic said.

“[Quiano Queen’s] done well. She gets carried away a little bit in the stalls. When you take her to the races she’s a bit of a handful.

“She got scratched there a couple of meetings ago at Queanbeyan because she was rather naughty.

“I’m hoping she’ll behave tomorrow and be on her best behaviour and hopefully they’ll run one-two.”
