Future Solutions proves he's more than a wet tracker

 KANE Harris is considering a trip to Tasmania for today’s Spotless Plate winner Future Solutions.

Harris said Future Solutions, who raced well in the Winter Championships, deserved a shot at Listed Race company.

The only reservation that Harris has is that last time he travelled the horse to Adelaide it performed poorly.

“He may go. He didn’t travel well in the past,” Harris said.

“There is a couple of races for him at Listed level. I think he deserved his chance at Listed Race level gain.

“If we don’t go we may have to wait for the Winter Championship again.”

Future Solutions, backed late from $10 to $8.50, scored by a half length from Lone Command, which firmed from $11 to $9. 

Lord Of Brazil was a luckless short half head away third.

What Future Solutions dispelled with his latest success is a theory that the horse is purely a wet-tracker.

“Everyone knows he’s good on the wet surfaces, but he’s also ran creditable races on the dry,” Harris said.

“A lot of people have in their head that he is just a wet tracker, but I don’t think he is."

 Apprentice Thomas Sadler said Lord Of Brazil, the $4.60 favourite, was desperately unlucky not to have won

Sadler said he was unable to gain clear running on the Darren Weir-trained horse when he needed to at the top of the straight.

“At the top of the straight when I needed to be edging out and getting in the clear, I was too covered up,” Sadler said. 

“He was just unlucky not to have won.”
