The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday April 7, 2012.
11 horses have been nominated for a start in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes, with More Joyous headlining the star-studded field.
More Joyous will be having her second start for the autumn after winning the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes at her first start.
The five-year-old mare has won 16 of her 23 starts and has earned more than $2.5 million in prize money across her celebrated career.
More Joyous has drawn barrier seven for the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes and will be ridden by regular rider Nash Rawiller.
Ofcourseican is also included in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes final field after her impressive last start win.
The Mossman mare won the Group 1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill on March 24, 2012, after first winning the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup at her previous start.
Trainer Ron Quinton is hopeful he made the right decision to run Ofcourseican in the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes rather than the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes on the same day.
“I’m hopeful that her owner agrees with me that she should run in the fillies and mares race,” Quinton said.
“She’s not going to meet them well on weights but she’s a mare in form.
“It’s not going to end up a huge field where the other race looks like being a big field, a capacity field.
“She’s a tough mare.
“I couldn’t believe how well she came through the race a couple of days after the Coolmore.
“We couldn’t see much of her work this morning either but we saw her the last furlong (200m) and her last furlong was pretty impressive.”
Ofcourseican has drawn barrier four for the 2012 Queen Of The Turf Stakes and will be ridden by jockey Kathy O’Hara.
