Adelaide Next Stop for 2013 BTC Cup-Bound Yosei

Stuart Webb’s triple Group 1 winning mare Yosei is set to return to racing in Adelaide Saturday week before heading to Queensland for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival where a showdown with Black Caviar could be on the cards in the BTC Cup 2013.

The Invincible Spirit five-year-old has earned connections a pretty penny over the seasons but has a reputation as a real hit-and-miss sprinter having won just four of her 32 starts.

Luckily three of those turf triumphs were at the top level, her most recent Group 1 trophy achieved in Brisbane back in June of 2011 where she won the Tattersall’s Tiara.

That was also the last time Yosei saw the inside of a winners’ stall with the mare not having won a race since.

Last seen finishing 13th to Mr Moet in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in November, before which she ran a promising fourth to Happy Trails in the Melbourne’s Emirates Stakes, Yosei will look to break the drought when she races at Morphettville on April 27

Set to contest a race won by the mighty Black Caviar last Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival, Yosei is one of 27 nominated for this year’s $400,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) which is also known as the Sportingbet Classic.

All but three of this year’s Sportingbet Classic entries are trained interstate and Yosei is set to face some stiff competition first-up including Chris Waller’s flying Sapphire Stakes winner Arinosa and former star juvenile Snitzerland.

But none of those rivals will be as hard to beat as the one she will go up against should a trip to Brisbane for the $400,000 Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben on Mary 11 with Black Caviar another likely starter in the sunshine state sprint.

Yosei showed Webb she was ready to get back to racing with a pleasing barrier trial earlier in the week.

“She’ll need that today and she’ll have a real good gallop next week and then probably kick off in the Sangster on Saturday week,” he said on Monday.

Webb also suggested that along with the BTC Cup Yosei would be kept in Brisbane for the festival’s other features including the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 25, the $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 8 and the race she won two year’s back the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) two weeks after the Straddie.

“She’ll probably run in three out of the four of them,” Webb said.
