Canterbury Stakes 2012 – Nominations & Weights Released

March 20th, 2012

The 2012 Canterbury Stakes is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday March 24, 2012, and here you will find the latest nomination and weights information.

A total of 18 horses have been nominated for the 2012 Canterbury Stakes, including Gai Waterhouse’s More Joyous.

More Joyous will be having her first-up start in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes after having just three starts during last year’s spring carnival.

The More Than Ready mare won the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes last spring and finished seventh in her most recent start in the Group 1 Myer Classic.

More Joyous has won 15 of her 22 race starts and has earned close to $2.4 million in prize money.

Sincero is also one of the horses nominated for a start in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes this weekend.

The Umatilla gelding will also be having his first autumn race start in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes after a disappointing spring carnival.

Sincero began his spring campaign with two wins in the Group 3 Tramway Handicap and the Group 1 George Main Stakes, however, failed to finish better than fifth in any of his next four starts.

The four-year-old gelding has won 11 of his 19 race starts, including the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap, and has earned more than $1.43 million in prize money.

Ilovethiscity, Happy Zero, Love Conquers All and Albert The Fat are also included in the 2012 Canterbury Stakes nominations.
