Albany star Red Can Man will chase the riches of the $4 million The TABtouch Quokka (1200m) on Saturday at Ascot. Red Can Man is prepared by veteran Albany trainer Steve Wolfe with a strong base of Albany owners. Stable jockey Shaun McGruddy will ride the sprinter but the local hopes were dealt a blow after drawing barrier 11 in the field of 14. There was drama at Tuesday morning’s barrier draw, with an error forcing nine horses, including Red Can Man, to be redrawn, sending him from gate five to 11. A winner of more than $1m in prize money and bonuses, Red Can Man was listed a $21 chance with TABtouch on Wednesday. In his two runs this preparation, the six-year-old has finished second to Acromantula in the Rock Magic Stakes (1000m) and second to Quokka favourite Amelia’s Jewel in the Roma Cup (1100m). The Quokka is part of a $5.5m racing bonanza across racing’s three codes this week. The Western Trilogy, Australia’s first tri-code slot racing event, will kick off with $1m The Nullarbor (2536m) at Gloucester Park and $500,000 The Sandgroper (520m) at Cannington on Friday night. Attention turns to Ascot on Saturday for The Quokka – WA’s first slot race in the thoroughbred code. Superstar filly Amelia’s Jewel will carry the hopes of the home State, and is expected to start favourite in the feature race. Racing and Wagering WA attracted strong interest from Australia’s leading stables and corporate bookmakers, with 14 slots available at $200,000 each for the weight-for-age sprint. Holders in WA’s first thoroughbred slot race include Ladbrokes, Perth Racing, Sports Entertainment Network and Sportsbet. Slot races have soared on the back of the success of the $15m The Everest in Sydney, the world’s richest race on turf which has drawn big crowds and turnover since it was first run in 2017. Red Can Man will be in the Rapid Equine Breeding slot for the event, with the winners pocketing $2m. The Quokka is set down for 3.50pm on Saturday.
