Filly Out to Secure Guineas Start

Friday, 22nd December 2017

Promising filly Femme Fireball will attempt to qualify for next month's $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas tomorrow, reports Racing Queensland. The Robert Heathcote-trained Femme Fireball (Pierro-Subtitle, by Fastnet Rock) has hitherto won 2 of her 3 starts and will be given the chance to make the field for the $2 million feature when she contests the QTIS Three-Year-Old Handicap (1200m) at the Gold Coast tomorrow. "She' a very nice filly and a daughter of Pierro but I'm not super confident about her chances of getting into the Magic Millions Guineas," Heathcote said. "She's nowhere near qualified yet and will need to run very good on Saturday." Heathcote added: "Her aim is the Magic Millions Guineas but she'll need to go on to the Vo Rogue after this run to get enough prize money to qualify." Heathcote believes Femme Fireball has the potential to develop into a stakes filly in the future. "I think she'll develop further and make a nice Stakes filly later on but this race on Saturday is a throw at the stumps," he said.
