Stephen Marsh decided to bring Sofia Rosa home.

Cambridge trainer Stephen Marsh has cut short Sofia Rosa’s Sydney campaign.

“She arrived back home on Wednesday and she’s in the paddock,” said the Cambridge trainer.

The Gr.1 Australian Oaks winner was unplaced in last Saturday’s Gr.1 Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill with an effort that halted plans for a crack at the $A4 million Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Marsh said he would talk to connections in the coming days regarding Sofia Rosa’s immediate future.
