More Joyous will take on the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes on April 7, 2012, at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.
The mare has been set for the race after winning her first-up start in the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes at Rosehill last Saturday by 1.3 lengths.
Jockey Nash Rawiller is excited about her prospects this autumn, including in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
“I just love her to death,” Rawiller said.
“She’s a great mare and she has been very good to me.
“I’d love her to win a really big race like the Doncaster Mile this autumn; that would cap her career.”
Rawiller said trainer Gai Waterhouse was confident More Joyous would win the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
“Gai said More Joyous is not 100 per cent fit and ready for this race; that’s something I have never heard Gai say before,” Rawiller said.
“I was mindful of that during the race and when I came out wide to make her run from the home turn, I cuddled her for as long as I could.
“Then in the last 150m I asked her for a final effort and she produced this amazing burst of acceleration.
“It’s what wins her so many races. She felt like the old More Joyous today, it’s great to see her back in that sort of form.”
More Joyous has won 16 of her 23 race starts and has earned almost $2.5 million in prize money.
