More Joyous Doncaster Mile Bound Again in 2013

Glamour mare More Joyous will likely defend her title in the 2013 Doncaster Mile next Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival according to owner John Singleton’s racing manager Duncan Grimley.

More Joyous will likely defend her title in the Doncaster Mile 2013

After running a career worst 11th in the 2011 Doncaster Mile to Sacred Choice on a bog track, the Gai Waterhouse-trained More Than Ready six-year-old returned last autumn to win the $2 million Group 1 handicap by three quarters of a length over Shoot Out.

Now the Doncaster Mile, set to run at Royal Randwick on Saturday April 20 next year, has been named as the major autumn aim for the eight-time Group 1 winner, More Joyous last seen finishing a disappointing 11th to boom Kiwi galloper Ocean Park in the Cox Plate.

The Doncaster victory cemented More Joyous as a genuine turf great in the minds of many racing fans and was the second of a three-straight Group 1 winning streak for her in April that started with the Queen Of The Turf Stakes over 1500m at Rosehill and culminated with the Queen Elizabeth Stakes over the 200m at Randwick on Sydney Cup Day.

It is this same campaign that Grimley said More Joyous would likely embark on in 2013 starting with a title defense in the $175,000 Group 2 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 23.

“She will probably have the same campaign that she had last year depending on what weight she gets in the Doncaster,” Grimley said.

More Joyous was allocated 57.5kg in the Doncaster last year.
