2012 Doncaster Handicap – Final Field & Barrier Draw

April 17th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been announced for the Group 3 Doncaster Handicap at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 21, 2012.

More Joyous has drawn barrier 12 for the 2012 Doncaster Handicap this weekend.

The five-year-old mare will be looking to continue her unbeaten streak this autumn, after winning both the Group 2 Canterbury Stakes first-up and the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes last start.

More Joyous has won 17 of her 24 race starts and has earned more than $2.74 million in prize money.

The More Than Ready mare will only run in the 2012 Doncaster Handicap if the rain stays away to avoid a repeat of last year’s disappointing performance on a Heavy 10-rated track.

“We just happened to strike them on Slipper day and Doncaster day. We won’t be doing that again,” racing manager Duncan Grimley said.

“The original plan was to back up next week into the Queen Elizabeth, but it’s all weather dependent with her.

“We will never run her again on the heavy after last time.”

Secret Admirer has drawn the widest barrier of 22 for the 2012 Doncaster Mile, however, trainer Grahame Begg is not concerned.

“History suggests that drawing out in the feature mile races at Randwick is nothing to be concerned about,” he said.

“As long as she can get cover and clear running at the finish I’ll be happy.”

Secret Admirer finished a close second in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic on March 24, 2012, before finishing third by a neck to Metal Bender in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes.

The four-year-old mare has won three of her 14 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money.
