Yosei to Skip 2012 Crystal Mile in Favour of 2012 Myer Classic

Multiple Group 1 winner Yosei will not be among the acceptors for Saturday’s Group 2 2012 Crystal Mile and will instead go straight into Saturday week’s Group 1 2012 Myer Classic (1600m).


Yosei will not run in Saturday's Crystal Mile

Trainer Stuart Webb has elected to skip challenging Group 1-winning geldings Solzhenitsyn and Rangirangdoo at weight-for-age level in favour of taking on her own gender in Saturday week’s female feature.

After finishing unplaced in her first four starts of the spring, Yosei showed some form in the Toorak Handicap when she finished third behind Solzhenitsyn and Spirit Song.

Webb said there were no problems with the Invincible Spirit mare but pointed to the fact that the Myer was a more suitable race as the reason for the decision.

“The Myer Classic at Flemington is the better option for her so we’ll go there,” Webb said.

Yosei, a winner of just four of 24 starts, has always shown talent but has often struggled with consistency and has not won since the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara last June.

She has won more than $1.1 million in prizemoney with three of her four career wins coming at Group 1 level.

The decision to skip the Crystal Mile adds further strength to the Myer Classic that is set to feature a top field of mares.

Among those being aimed at the mares’ mile include multiple Group 1 winner Mosheen, Premiere Stakes winner Red Tracer, Australian Oaks winner Streama and the Patinack-owned Pear Tart.

The Myer Classic takes place as part of a bumper Flemington card to begin the Melbourne Cup Carnival that also features the Group 1 Victoria Derby, Coolmore Stud Stakes and Mackinnon Stakes.
