2010 Queen Of The Turf Stakes Dominated By Typhoon Tracy

April 6th, 2010

Caulfield-based Typhoon Tracy took out the illustrious Group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m) on Saturday, dominating the field as she continued her incredible winning streak to 10 wins from 13 starts.

The Peter Moody-trained mare is now regarded as Australia’s classiest racing mare.

Forming part of the Rosehill Gardens Racecourses Golden Slipper Day, the highly regarded Queen of the Turf Stakes saw 11 fillies and mares compete over the middle distance, all hoping to take away some of the $400,000 prize purse.

The Peter Moody-trained mare is now regarded as Australia’s classiest racing mare.

Typhoon Tracy was clear favourite going into the race and did not fail to disappoint, defeating Illuminates by two and a quarter lengths, while Montana Flyer came in third.

Two favourites going into the 2010 Queen of the Turf Stakes – More Joyous and Sister Madly, were both scratched from the race.

After such a fantastic racing streak, Moody looks set to enter Typhoon Tracy into the highly coveted Group 1 Doncaster Handicap (1600m) on the 17th of April.

Also taking place on Saturday at Rosehill was the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) which also saw a dominant win – by Crystal Lily, the Group 2 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and the Group 3 Stakes Kingdom Stakes (1100m).
