With to be held next month, along with 1 Melbourne Cup heats just two and a half weeks away, Victorians may be treated to seeing the NSW sprinting superstar soon.

The 28kg chaser was purchased by the Punters HQ Syndicate from previous owner and trainer Peter Sims and went on to dominate this year's Golden Easter Egg series at Wentworth Park by winning her heat, semi-final and the final, while stringing together 13 consecutive victories between the space of February to August.

With The Phoenix now worth $1 million to the winner, while the Melbourne Cup has also received a prizemoney boost with the winner to collect $650,000, it appear evident these prizemoney records will continue to be broken in the near future.
