Yosei Ready for Myer Classic 2012

Caulfield horsemen Stuart Webb is more confident than ever that his five-year-old mare Yosei can add a fourth Group 1 title to her record in the 2012 Myer Classic this Saturday after her sensational hit-out at last week’s Moonee Valley Breakfast with the Stars.


Yosei will shoot for her fourth Group 1 win in the 2012 Myer Classic this Saturday

The Invincible Sprit five-year-old matched it stride for stride with subsequent Cox Plate winner Ocean Park in the gallop and showed she was ready for her latest assignment in the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Victoria Derby Day.

Yosei first entered the Group 1 club as a juvenile in April of 2010 when winning the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes in Sydney.

She added a second elite level to her name that spring in Melbourne when putting an easy two lengths on her closest rival in the Thousand Guineas before she failed on a Heavy (8) Flemington track next start to finish over 29 lengths away ninth behind Sacred Choice in the 2012 Myer Classic.

It wasn’t until she ran during last year’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival that Yosei would win again, this time become a triple Group 1 champ with her tight victory over Beaded in the Tattersall’s Tiara.

After a disappointing next two preparations she looked to have re-gathered her best form when beaten only a length to run third to superstar mare More Joyous in the Doncaster Mile this autumn.

It would be more frustration for Webb and connections this time in with Yosei finishing out of the money in her four early season starts before she ran a much improved third coming with three quarters of a length to smart Brisbane visitor Solzhenitsyn in the Toorak Handicap over the Caulfield mile on October 13.

For her Toorak performance Yosei was ridden by one of Australia’s best jockeys with Glen Boss in the saddle and Webb is over the moon the top hoop will continue his association with her in the Myer Classic on Saturday.

Yosei finally enjoyed some good luck with the gates two coming up with barrier one in the 13-horse Myer Classic field and as such is one of the six single-figure fancies in the markets.

Myer Classic odds at bookmaker.com.au are led by last start Tristarc Stakes winner Streama ($3.40) while Yosei can be found a little further down at a quote of $8, equal with this year’s Tattersalls Tiara winner Pear Tart.

While Yosie’s record at Flemington leaves a lot to be desired with zero wins and just one third from eight starts, Webb isn’t worried saying she has been unlucky at the track.

“If there’s one track she should be suited at it should be Flemington,” he said.
