Will More Joyous Win The 2011 Futurity Stakes?

More Joyous

Gai Waterhouse's mare More Joyous is set to run in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes on Saturday at Caulfield

All eyes will be on the 2011 Futurity Stakes this weekend when superstar mare More Joyous attempts to continue her unbeatable form on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

More Joyous will contend the Group 1 Futurity Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 26, 2011.

More Joyous has won 11of her 15 career starts and her trainer, Gai Waterhouse, has publicly claimed she believes her champion mare will remain unbeaten this preparation.

The More Than Ready mare won her first race this preparation in remarkable style, blitzing the rest of the field in the 2011 Breeders Classic by two and a half lengths.

More Joyous only failed to win one race last prep when she attempted to take up the role as pacemaker in the 2,040 metre Cox Plate last October and finished fifth.

Gai Waterhouse was more than pleased with her sensational mare’s recovery after the 2011 Breeders Classic.

“She worked over 1200 metres on the Kensington track this morning and you wouldn’t have known she had a run last week,” Ms Waterhouse said last week.

More Joyous began her almost unbeaten run back in September, 2009, with a win in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes.

Since then More Joyous has been beaten only once, and has cemented herself as one of the most impressive and outstanding race horses in the world.

Unfortunately for racing enthusiasts, the retirement of super-mare Typhoon Tracy earlier this month means that we have been denied of an exciting showdown between the two champions in the 2011 Futurity Stakes.

Gai Waterhouse is amongst those who regret the meeting never coming to fruition.

“It is a shame Typhoon Tracy won’t be there,” Ms Waterhouse said.

“These great contests are what make racing so exciting.”

As it is, there will be no lack of competition in the 2011 Futurity Stakes for More Joyous to attempt to overcome.

Maluckyday will be making his comeback to racing after the four-year-old gelding finished second to Americain in the 2010 Melbourne Cup last start.

The Zabeel gelding has won five of his nine starts and will be sure to give More Joyous a run for her money in the 2011 Futurity Stakes.

Also vying for the 2011 Futurity Stakes title is Mark Kavanagh’s Whobegotyou, who will be returning to racing after placing third in the 2010 Cox Plate ahead of More Joyous last start.

Whobegotyou has won eight of his 25 career starts and has total career earnings that top $2.8 million.

However, Gai Waterhouse is confident that no amount of talent will overcome her extraordinary mare More Joyous, and believes she will win the 2011 Futurity Stakes, as well as any other races she chooses to contest this preparation.

”She is fully matured, fully developed and she’ll continue to win,” Ms Waterhouse said.

”She is just unbelievable – a remarkable racehorse.”
