Que Amoro impresses with listed win in fast time at Ayr

TRAINER Michael Dods has high hopes for flying filly Que Amoro after she won her first listed race in a lightning quick time at Ayr today.

The four-year-old bay filly was highly impressive in easily winning the EBF Land O’Burns Fillies’ Stakes over five furlongs at the Scottish track.

And, as well as making a striking visual impression, the time of 57.12 underlined the quality of the performance under a confident ride from Paul Mulrennan.

James Stack's Tipperary raider, American Lady, was no match for the winner as Que Amoro raced down the centre and came home three lengths clear.

“She’s very quick and the time was the fastest of the day by a long way,” said Michael. “She seemed to quicken again from the front so we have to be delighted.”

There are no firm plans for the Es Que Love sprinter but a tilt at Group class has to be on the agenda now.

“She did it well and she looks like she’s making up into a high-class sprinter. She’s only four, so you’d hope she’d improve. We’ll talk to the owners before deciding where to go next,” added Michael.

Que Amoro had looked progressive as a three-year-old after scoring a double at York before finishing the season with a close second to Karl Burke’s Lady In France in a listed race at Ayr.

Denton Hall stablemate Queens Gift, ridden by Callum Rodriguez, finished fifth behind Que Amoro after missing the break.

“She had a tardy start and it’s hard to make up the ground when they go that quick but she still ran well,” said Michael.
