Yosei Chasing Drought Breaker in 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara

When Yosei steps out at Eagle Farm in Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara, it will have been two years since she last recorded victory.

Well, nearly two years anyway. To be more precise it will have been one year, 11 months and 29 days. That’s 729 days.

There’s no denying the five-year-old’s talent but there’s also no denying that she has been a source of frustration for punters.

Always promising so much, sometimes running home with intent, sometimes looking like she doesn’t belong.

Incredibly, despite only recording four victories from 36 starts, the Stuart Webb-trained sprinter-miler has managed to collect more than $1.2 million in prizemoney, with three of her four career wins coming in the top grade.

In Yosei’s defence, she has certainly been set a task by connections. Of her 36 trips to the races, 24 have been at Group 1 level, meaning she seemingly never gets given an easy task.

On her side this weekend as she attempts to strike another blow at Group 1 level for connections is she has been there done that.

It was in the Tatt’s Tiara in 2011 when the daughter of Invincible Spirit last beat all of her rivals home, defeating Darley’s Beaded to win the winter’s biggest race for fillies and mares.

Also in Yosei’s favour this weekend are a plum barrier five position and a return to racing against her own sex after struggling against the males in her three most recent starts.

The triple Group 1 winner began her winter campaign in promising fashion when third in the Robert Sangster Stakes but has since gone unplaced in The Goodwood, the Doomben 10,000 and the Stradbroke Handicap.

Yosei is likely to be around the $15 mark when markets open for the Tattersall’s Tiara, with Sydney mares Streama and Red Tracer likely to start as favourites.

It’s the last Group 1 of the 2012-13 racing season and great odds will be found at bookmaker.com.au when markets open shortly!
