Let’s Make Adeal scores dominant win in Centaurea Stakes

Jockey Craig Williams was quick to get back into the good books with punters when he steered Let’s Make Adeal to a dominant win in the Listed $100,000 Mittys Centaurea Stakes (2000m) at Morphettville today.

Williams was out of luck on the well fancied Ungrateful Ellen when that filly finished third in the Group 3 …

The Queen Of The South Stakes is for fillies and mares, run under set weights and attracts the top local talent as well as a few handy interstate challengers. The very best rated horses in the country will usually run at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney on the same day in a variety of black type events during the Doncaster Mile Day program.

There have been some fantastic performances in Queen Of The South Stakes history with a few notable mentions.

Memphis Blues won back to back races in 1989 and 1990 with some of the fastest performances ever recorded.

Not to be outdone, in the next two years Shavano Miss also went back-to-back and her 1991 time of 1m 34.5s is the fastest time in the history of the race.

More recently Sylvaner was the last horse to go back-to-back claiming the 2002 and 2003 events.

Returntosender is one of the biggest names to travel to Adelaide for the Queen Of The South Stakes, comfortably claiming the 2010 event.
