The Gai Waterhouse trained champion mare More Joyous has won the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes on Caulfield Cup Day.
There were some anxious moments before the race for the glamour mare, with More Joyous needing to be re-saddled and delaying the race start causing her to drift out slightly in the betting markets.
More Joyous had to fight for the win, having to run down a strong Sister Madly who looked good for the win. Response finished third more than a length back with Goon Serpent fourth.
