2011 Futurity Stakes – Field & Form

More Joyous will attempt to continue her unbeatable form when she contests the 2011 Futurity Stakes this Saturday February 26, 2011.

The 2011 Futurity Stakes will feature as the first of three Group 1 races on Caulfield’s Blue Diamond Stakes Day and is worth a staggering $500,000 in prize money.

The 1400m Futurity Stakes has once again attracted a stellar field, including the seemingly unbeatable More Joyous.

More Joyous has won 11 of her 15 career starts so far and has accrued total prize money of more than $1.5 million.

The Gai Waterhouse-trained mare has drawn perfectly for the 2011 Futurity Stakes, and will jump from barrier one with jockey Nash Rawiller on-board.

Nash Rawiller has complete confidence in More Joyous’ ability to win Saturday’s Futurity Stakes after her first-up winning performance.

”At this stage, I couldn’t be any more confident heading into a group 1,” Rawiller said.

”She was awesome first-up, and has come through it in good order.”

More Joyous has won three of her four second-up starts and has claimed victory in both her previous 1,400 metre races.

The More Than Ready mare is fresh off a convincing win in the Group 2 Breeders Classic last start and will be hoping to continue her assiduous dominance over her competitors with a win in the 2011 Futurity Stakes.

More Joyous is currently overwhelming favourite for this year’s Futurity Stakes, paying odds of $1.55 at Luxbet.

Currently second favourite at Luxbet, paying $6.50, is Mark Kavanagh’s Whobegotyou.

Whobegotyou has won eight of his total 25 career starts and has earned close to $3 million in prize money.

The five-year-old Street Cry gelding is first-up for the 2011 Futurity Stakes, and will be contesting his first race since placing third in the Group 1 Cox Plate on October 23, 2011.

While Whobegotyou is sure to be hard to beat, he has only won one of six first up races, and often performs at his best later into his preparations.

Also amongst the talented 2011 Futurity Stakes field is Tony Noonan’s Ortensia.

The classy mare finished an honest third in the Group 1 C.F. Orr Stakes behind champion Typhoon Tracy last start and will be looking for her first win of this preparation.

Ortensia has won two out of three races on this track and has only failed to place twice out of eight attempts at this distance.

The Testa Rossa mare will be ridden by Mark Zahra and will jump from barrier five.

Also included in the field are Stephen McKee’s King Mufhasa and Peter Moody’s Doubtful Jack.

King Mufhasa will be looking for his first Australian win, after winning his last two starts overseas.

Doubtful Jack had an unlucky run in the C.F. Orr Stakes last start and will be a definite threat should the track be classed as Heavy, winning three out of three times on wet tracks.
