Queen Of The Turf Stakes 2012 – Nominations Released

April 2nd, 2012

Nominations have been released for the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, which is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday April 7, 2012.

13 horses have been nominated for a start in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, including More Joyous.

More Joyous won her last start in the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes by almost one and a half lengths and will be second up for the autumn in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

The five-year-old mare made her impressive return at Rosehill on March 24, 2012, after a shaky spring carnival campaign.

More Joyous has won 16 of her 23 race starts and has earned more than $2.5 million in prize money.

Ofcourseican is also included in the 2012 Queen Of The South Stakes nominations.

The Mossman mare won her last start in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic after winning her previous race start in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup.

Ofcourseican has won eight of her 26 race starts and has earned more than $730,000 in prize money.

Pinker Pinker will also take to the track for the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, which is worth $400,000 in prize money.

The four-year-old finished second in the Group 1 Futurity Stakes first-up this autumn before placing sixth in the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes at her next start.

Pinker Pinker is looking to recreate the events of last spring in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, when she won the Group 1 Cox Plate.

King’s Rose and Red Tracer are also included in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes nominations.
