What race would they send her up there for.

Open group 1s are the obvious target for Articus. 

The only one is the Doomben Cup.

That would get her into caulfield cup wouldn't it? That's the other suitable race, if she really came on. Not saying she is anywhere near that now.

I know Brisbane Cup is G2.

Did he say Doomben Cup was an option or was he just saying the Centaurea?

She was going Bonfield (bar a disaster). Hope u took the $31 available during the week.

She is a ripper and will eat 2000m. Wait until she sits on pace.

Not sure of the plan to get to the MC, but the MC is the dream.

You'd think CC to MC the most logical road, but you never know these days. Hard to get into the MC field. No way she gets in if the race was next week. Needs to win a big race or two.

Win in Doomben Cup might get her in. Otherwise a win in Brisbane Cup might get her in CC.

Testa Rossa's Amelie's Star Completes Comeback in Queen Of The South
Mark Smith - Sunday, 7 May 2017

Vinery Stud's stalwart Testa Rossa came agonisingly close to a Group double at Morphettville on Saturday.

Forty minutes after his 6yo son Reldas was nosed out by the Hussonet gelding Karacatis in the Group III D C McKay Stakes  (1100m), Testa Rossa struck with the Darren Weir-trained Amelie's Star in the Group II Queen Of The South Stakes (1600m).

It has been a roller-coaster ride for the connections of 5yo mare whose career began with a whimper when beating just two of the 14 starter's home in a maiden at Kembla Grange back in January 2015.

 After breaking her maiden at her fourth start for her then trainer Peter Moody, Amelia's Star went on a 4-win streak culminating with a dominant performance in the Group III Colin Stephen Quality (2400m) at Rosehill in September 2015. (photo Lisa Grimm). 


But then an injury saw the daughter of Testa Rossa off the scene for 18 months.

Following a first-up fourth at Morphettville on April 8, Amelie's Star finished second over 1800m at Flemington on Anzac Day.

She advances her overall record to 5 wins, 2 seconds and 1 third from 11 starts with earnings of $340,935. 

A homebred for Patrick Hodgens, Amelie's Star is the fourth foal of the Zabeel mare Zazita, which Hodgens had bought at the 2007 Magic Millions National Broodmare sale for $130,000.

A year after foaling Amelie's Star, Zarita produced the very handy Mossman filly Honey Cara, a recent winner at Moonee Valley and Flemington.

But Zazita has had a troubled history in the past few years.

She missed to Smart Missile in 2012 then did not hold to Smart Missile and Pluck (USA) in 2013 and slipped to Husson (ARG) in 2014.

In 2016 Zazita produced a filly by German import Illo (GER) who now stands in China.

Zazita was covered by Australian Derby winner Nom Du Jeu last spring.

Have they read the qualifying conditions for MC? Winning a Doomben Cup won't pass the ballot clause.

Does that September 2015 2400m G3 win pass the ballot clause?

I wouldn't think so - last year the cut off dates for performances to pass the first qualification clause was 1 February 2015 so you would imagine it will be 1 February 2016 for this year's edition.

The horse has no hope in a Doomben Cup anyway so they would be much better off to head to the Brisbane Cup if the long term goal is the first Tuesday in November.
