    QUALITY performer Amore Vita will continue her journey towards a slice of history when she returns to Melton on Saturday night.

    Engaged in a Vicbred Super Series semi, Amore Vita is aiming to become just the third pacer, and second mare, to complete a clean sweep of the Finals.

    Triumphant in the two and three-year-old editions, the daughter of Art Major is attempting to join her former Emma Stewart-trained stablemate, Maajida, as the only members of the ‘fairer sex’ to win in all three seasons.

    Maajida completed the feat in 2019, ’20 and ’21 to join Colbruce as just the second pacer to win each decider.

    It’s likely Colbruce will forever hold a Vicbred record, however, having won four Finals!

    The Noel Shinn-trained colt was triumphant on June 1, 1996 before the event was declared a “No Race”.

    Returning to Moonee Valley a fortnight later, Colbruce was once again victorious in what was a fitting win.

    The son of Muckalee Strike was then successful as a three-year-old in May 1997 and at four in December ’97.

    As for Amore Vita, she earned her berth in the semi thanks to her heat win in Shepparton last week.

    To be driven by David Moran, Amore Vita – is one of five Stewart-trained runners in the field – is a short-priced favourite despite drawing awkwardly in barrier five.

    “She has come through her heat run in perfect condition and has worked tremendously this week,” Stewart said. “She’s going to be very hard to beat.”
