More Joyous won her first-up start this spring in the Listed Shereco Stakes at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on September 15, 2012, by one and a half lengths.
The More Than Ready mare has won 20 of her 27 race starts and has earned more than $4.3 million in prize money during her horse racing career.
More Joyous won all four of her race starts during the autumn carnival earlier this year, including the Group 1 Doncaster Mile.
She is heading towards a run in the $3 million Cox Plate on October 27, 2012, and is also nominated for the $6 million Melbourne Cup on November 6.

Red Tracer will be having her first start of the 2012 spring racing carnival in the 2012 Golden Pendant after a three month spell following a successful winter campaign where she won the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes.
Her most recent result was a close fourth to Pear Tart in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm on June 23.
