Karuta Queen Returns in 2013 Bob Hoysted Handicap

Former juvenile star Karuta Queen will have her first race in nearly a year when she returns in the Listed 2013 Bob Hoysted Handicap (1000m) at Flemington on Saturday.

Stepping out for the first time under new trainer Peter Moody, the four-year-old has not been seen since a disappointing autumn campaign last year where she was unplaced from three starts.

The Not A Single Doubt mare was an outstanding two-year-old, winning the Magic Millions Classic at the Gold Coast by three lengths.

As a spring three-year-old she won the Group 3 Australia Stakes and was runner-up to Black Caviar in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes.

Moody is not expecting miracles from the dual stakes winner and admits he is still working out the horse.

“She’s not a sparkling worker by any means at home,” Moody told AAP.

“When you have a horse for the first time you’re just not sure about them.”

Karuta Queen has won six of 15 starts and collected more than $1.68 million in prizemoney.

The four-year-old is one of 12 horses in the Bob Hoysted field where she will carry 56.5kg.

Also returning in the Bob Hoysted for Moody is Ready To Rip who had a strong spring campaign under the Victoria trainer after previously racing in Queensland for Andrew Williamson.

Ready To Rip progressed nicely through the grades to win the Listed All Victorian Sprint Final and Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes before placing in both the Group 2 PB Lawrence Stakes and the Group 2 Moir Stakes.

Others in the Bob Hoysted field include last-start runner-ups Canali and Fab Fevola, Damien Williams-trained gelding Morant and Steven Arnold’s General Truce.
