Karuta Queen To Be Given Group 1 Test in 2013 Oakleigh Plate

Victoria’s leading trainer Peter Moody is setting the bar high with recent stable addition Karuta Queen and will aim her at the Group 1 2013 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 23.

The talented sprinter was transferred to Moody from Canberra trainer Neville Layt and has been given the task of reigniting her racing career.

The move to Victoria came after prominent owner John Singleton bought into the mare in June.

A winner of the Magic Millions Classic as a two-year-old, Karuta Queen hasn’t raced since a disappointing ninth at Rosehill last March which was the final start of an unsuccessful autumn preparation.

The four-year-old has won six of 15 starts but has not tasted victory since the Group 3 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley in October 2011.

Karuta Queen was an outstanding two-year-old, winning her first four starts including the Magic Millions. She has had only one test at Group 1 level in her career where she was beaten six lengths when 10th in the Golden Slipper.

As a three-year-old the success continued with wins in the Heritage Stakes and the Australia Stakes and she also ran second to new stablemate Black Caviar in the 2011 Schillaci Stakes.

While she will never match the feats of Moody’s number one galloper, the Caulfield trainer is hopeful she can furnish into a genuine Group 1 contender this autumn.

”She’s a nice filly and has settled in really well since she got here,” Moody said.

The $400,000 Oakleigh Plate generally attracts a quality field so Karuta Queen will have to be at the top of her game but showed in her Schillaci Stakes second that she is well suited to Caulfield.
