Karuta Queen Headlines Rubiton Stakes 2012 Nominations

February 6th, 2012

The Group 3 Rubiton Stakes, which will run at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday February 11, 2012, has attracted a total of 15 nominations.

Karuta Queen is one of 15 horses nominated for the $125,000 race.

The Not A Single Doubt filly will be first-up in the Rubiton Stakes 2012 after a three month spell following her successful spring campaign.

Trainer Neville Layt said the 2012 Rubiton Stakes (1,100m) was the preferable first-up option over the Group 2 Expressway Stakes at Rosehill this weekend.

“I could have run her in the Expressway but first-up over 1200 metres is not ideal,” Layt said.

“So we’ve decided to go to Melbourne instead for the Rubiton.

“She will get in on the minimum.

“She’s been to Caulfield before so that’s not a worry for us.

“It’s only seven hours down the road from Queanbeyan so she will travel on Wednesday.”

Karuta Queen has won six of her 12 race starts and has earned close to $1.7 million in prize money.

The three-year-old, who was a $30,000 purchase from the 2012 Magic Millions Yearling Sales, posted her most recent win in the Group 3 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley Racecourse last October.

Here De Angels, Zedi Knight, Eagle Falls, Eight Bills, Grand Duels, First Command and Decircles are also included in the 2012 Rubiton Stakes nominations.
