The Group 2 Breeders Classic is scheduled to run at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday February 18, 2012.
The race is worth $175,000 and is open to mares aged four-years-old and upwards only.
The 2012 Breeders Classic will be run over a distance of 1,200 metres and under set weight plus penalty conditions.
Last year’s winner of the Breeders Classic was More Joyous, who is one of the biggest stars in horse racing today.
There has been no word on whether More Joyous will contest the 2012 Breeders Classic in order to win back to back titles.
The five-year-old mare will once again be targeted at the $2 million Doncaster Mile on April 21 and may well use the 2012 Breeders Classic as a lead-up race like last year.
More Joyous has won 15 of her 22 race starts and has earned close to $2.4 million in prize money.
Other possible 2012 Breeders Classic contenders include Graceful Anna, Montana Flyer and Sacred Choice.
The 2012 Breeders Classic will take place on the same day as the Group 2 Royal Sovereign Stakes, Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes, Listed Widden Stakes and Listed Canonbury Stakes.
