King Mufhasa Likely To Defend 2012 Toorak Handicap Title

June 20th, 2012

The Group 1 Toorak Handicap is scheduled to run at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday October 13, 2012.

Run over a distance of 1,600 metres, the 2012 Toorak Handicap is worth $350,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Toorak Handicap is open to horses of all ages and is run under handicap conditions.

Run as part of Caulfield Guineas Day, the 2012 Toorak Handicap shares its program with the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas, Group 1 Caulfield Stakes, Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes, Group 2 Schillaci Stakes, and Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes.

King Mufhasa proved too good to win last year’s Toorak Handicap by almost half a length in front of King’s Rose and Luen Yat Forever.

The New Zealander went on to win the Group 1 Captain Cook Stakes at Trentham later in the spring, showing the Toorak Handicap’s worth for form guides when online betting.

King Mufhasa won the Group 1 Futurity Stakes during the autumn and will be a likely contender in the 2012 Toorak Handicap this October.
