More Joyous has exerted her dominance over the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes field at Rosehill Racecourse today.
The five-year-old mare proved that she was well and truly back this autumn as she put the rest of the field to shame in the $400,000 race.
More Joyous won the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes ahead of second place runner Miss Keepsake, and third place-getter King’s Rose.
Trainer Gai Waterhouse was so overcome with joy after the race that she almost rated More Joyous above Black Caviar.
“She’s the best mare we have in Australiasia. No, the best mare we have in New South Wales,” said Waterhouse as she quickly corrected herself.
“Well that’s how good she is.”
More Joyous will now go on towards the Group 1 Doncaster Mile at Royal Randwick Racecourse on April 21, 2012.
“Onwards and upwards to the Doncaster,” Waterhouse said.
“She’s very well weighted in it”
Jockey Nash Rawiller continued his successful relationship with More Joyous in today’s 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
“Full credit to the mare,” Rawiller said.
“She makes my job easy.
“She really attacked the line today. It was very impressive.
“I was pretty much in cruise control from the furlong onwards.”
