Queensland targets for Serena Miss
28 Mar 2016Group One performer Serena Miss is being aimed at the Queensland winter carnival by trainers Graeme ad Debbie Rogerson..
The Goodwood Stud graduate has been off the scene for some months, but she has benefitted from her time out.
“Serena Miss had a couple of hard runs at Riccarton so she had a decent spell – she didn’t leave the stable and had a paddock here and came in at night,” Debbie Rogerson said.
The powerfully-built daughter of Iffraaj won the Gr.2 James & Annie Sarten Memorial in the spring and finished third behind Xtravagant in the Gr.1 NZ 2000 Guineas before she unsuccessfully backed up in the Gr.1 NZ 1000 Guineas.
“She’s come back really well – she’s a magnificent looking filly and she’s really filling out her frame,” Rogerson said.
The Gr.3 Doomben Roses on May 26 and the Gr.1 Queensland Oaks a fortnight later are the likely targets for Serena Miss.
A daughter of the More Than Ready mare Gifted Lass, she was bought out Goodwood’s Karaka draft in 2014 for $65,000.
