Karuta Queen Back On Track For 2011 Golden Slipper

March 31st, 2011

Karuta Queen is fit and ready for this Saturday’s 2011 Golden Slipper event. She was previously unbeaten for 3 races in a row before she pulled up lame after a second-place finish in the Listed Black Opal on March 13, 2011, but has since recovered and improved according to trainer Neville Layt. “I put another horse with her to make sure she worked and she would have left the other horse 20 lengths behind,”  said Neville. He has no doubt in his mind that Karuta Queen has improved significantly since being topped at the Listed Black Opal.
