Martian II- Flying Queen
Trainer H.F. Best
When he won his first two starts in the Eagle Farm Sapling Stakes and Lonergan Stakes it looked as though Brisbane had a potential champion. But Flying Ace got a virus when he went to Sydney for the 1968 autumn carnival and raced below his best. He was never the same horse although he won the 1968 O’Mara Stakes, Doomben Dollars, QTC Guineas treble. He later won six open company races including one at Albion Park and one on the sand track at Eagle Farm when racing was transferred there during record rain in 1971.
