Appearance has upset favourite More Joyous to win the Queen Of The Turf Stakes 2013at Rosehill Gardens on Golden Slipper Day.
Favourite with both punters and fans, More Joyous had no luck in her run and was unable to get out in time for her strong run to the line and ended up 5th. Not that anything should be taken away from winner Appearance, this being the 4 year old mare’s 6th win from 13 starts and 3rd Group 1 victory. The consistant Red Tracer grabbed second ahead of Streama in third and Secret Admirer fourth.
Appearance’s next race has not been decided yet, but trainer Guy Walter admitted that the Group 1 Doncaster Mileat Royal Randwick on 20th April 2013 is a possibility.
“She’s in the Doncaster obviously, she’s got a lightweight, it would be pretty tempting to run,” Walter said.
