Amelia’s Jewel likely to follow traditional path

Most of the talk around two-year olds on Saturday was about Sire’s winner Fireburn, who is aiming to become just the seventh horse and second filly to win the two-year old triple crown, but those watching the West had equal reason to be excited.

Amelia’s Jewel, trained by Simon Miller and ridden by Patrick Carbery had already produced two dominant wins at listed and group three level and justified her $1.80 starting price to come from 12th at the 400m and win running away.

Races such as the Golden Rose and Guineas look exciting targets in the East, but the filly’s owner/breeder Peter Walsh, speaking with Andrew Bensley on SEN was quick to put the brakes on.

“She’ll be going home Tuesday and we’ll give her a good rest. Simon (Miller) will take her through a few three-year-old races and then we’ll see how she goes through there and our plan is, if it all comes together, to take her to Sydney or Melbourne in the autumn next year,” Walsh said.

Walsh said Patrick Carbery was glowing in his assessment of Amelia’s Jewel, saying “this is the best horse I’ve ever ridden.”

A traditional Western Australian three-year-old filly path is likely to be followed, with races such as the Champion Fillies Stakes, W.A. Guineas and potentially a tilt at the group one Kingston Town Classic over 1800m during the summer carnival.

Fillies have an excellent record in the Kingston Town in recent years, with Kay Cee (2019), Perfect Reflection (2015), and most notably Arcadia Queen (2018) who went on to multiple group one success in Melbourne.
