FIREBURN TO FOCUS ON NEXT AUTUMN

Gary Portelli’s Star Filly Fireburn is set to have only rare outings at the racetrack going forward with only light engagements for the rest of the year and spring planned with her trainer more excited about what she could achieve next Autumn

Fireburn will head to the spelling paddock on Tuesday after falling short of winning the two year old triple crown when coming up short in the Champagne Stakes at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

She had previously been impressive in winning the Golden Slipper and Inglis’ Sires at Group 1 level before finishing second to She’s Extreme on Saturday.

According to trainer Portelli Fireburn arrived back at the paddock in excellent condition and he is now beginning to plan her targets for the next 12 months of competition.

“She’s pulled up enormous,” he said.

“We had to work her today as she was getting worked up so we had to get her out of the box.

“She will be out to the paddock tomorrow but she is a different type of animal.

“Rebel Dane (her sire) didn't spell well and was better in the stables so we will have to monitor her while she is out and if she is similar.

“She will tell us while she is out.”

Portelli outlined the next steps would be for him to sit down with connections and work out the next move. However he did outline he was keen to rest his stable star for a period after an intense Autumn campaign.

“I don’t want to race early in the spring at all I would say,” Portelli said.

“I am not tempted to get her going too early and want to make sure she gets every chance to come back as well as possible.

“Personally I’m more concentrating on what we will target with her next autumn and where the best place to aim her is.

“She might only have a run or two in the spring and if you were going to throw up races, I think the Roman Consul and the Coolmore would make sense.”
