More Joyous Horse Information
One of the glamour horses from the stable of hall of fame trainer Gai Waterhouse, More Joyous boasts one of the most outstanding resumes in Australian racing. A daughter of More Than Ready, at the end of her five-year-old career More Joyous had already amassed nearly 20 victories including eight at Group 1 level.
The winner of more than $4 million in prizemoney has been a picture of consistency throughout her career which began with a 5 ½ length victory at Rosehill in January 2009. Victory at the top level first came as a three-year-old in the spring of 2009 when she took out the Group 1 Flight Stakes at the Sydney Spring Carnival.
After a light autumn campaign in which she won twice at Group 2 level, More Joyous secured a Cox Plate berth after impressing in spring lead-up races. She produced four consecutive victories including the Group 1 George Main Stakes and the Toorak Handicap but was unable to taste Cox Plate success. Her excellent form continued the following autumn as she won the Group 1 Futurity Stakes and the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
Queries arose surrounding the classy mare during the spring of 2011 when she had just a quiet campaign by her standards. Many suggested she was past her best when she won just once from three starts but she bounced back in the autumn of 2012 to silence the critics. In an unbeaten campaign, More Joyous stamped her authority as one of the best horses in the country with a Group 1 treble in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes, Doncaster Mile and Queen Elizabeth Stakes.
She came up against a champion when running fifth to So You Think in the 2010 Cox Plate but Waterhouse has declared 2012 as her best chance yet to win the prestigious weight-for-age event.
