Waller ruled out any thoughts of retirement for Red Tracer and says there is no reason why she can't add to her Group 1 tally next season.

"It takes so long to get horses of this calibre and she's the type who could be competitive in these types of races for at least another season," Waller said.

"She hasn't been heavily raced. She's in career-best form and is the soundest and healthiest she's ever been."

Jockey Nash Rawiller was impressed with the acceleration of Red Tracer ($4.80), Waller's ninth Group 1 winner of the season, who scored by two and a quarter lengths from the favourite Streama ($4.40) with Floria ($21) a short head away third.

"I haven't had a horse let down like that for me in a Group One for a long, long time," Rawiller said.

"From the time we left the barriers she was in a beautiful rhythm and I wasn't troubled by covering a bit of extra ground because she was travelling so well."
