Tara Madgwick - Saturday December 23
Exciting young sire Pierro already has Pierata and Cruze heading towards a possible start in the $2million Magic Millions 3YO Classic and produced another contender at the Gold Coast on Saturday with a fast finishing win for promising filly Femme Fireball.

Femme Fireball as a yearlingThe Robert Heatchcote trained filly made it a winning hat trick when she dropped from the clouds to score a length win in the $60,000 Magic Millions Open 3YO event at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Dropping back in distance from 1350 metres to 1200 metres, Femme Fireball hit the line hard from back in the field to score a dominant win.

"When Luke Nolen won on her last start he thought she was pretty special," said Robert Heathcote.

"If I want to get her into the Magic Millions 3YO race I will probably have to back her up in the Vo Rogue (Group III) next week to get in."
