Carlton House breaks new ground on Saturday

THE QUEEN'S Carlton House, who was beaten a length and two lengths in the Epsom and Irish Derbys of 2011, has his first start in Australia on Saturday.

He tackles the Group 2 Ajax Stakes over 7½f at Rosehill in Sydney for new trainer Gai Waterhouse, having been switched from Sir Michael Stoute this winter.

Carlton House showed his best form in Europe over a 1m2f, winning the Dante and Brigadier Gerard Stakes and will make his Australian debut over the shortest trip he has ever tackled.

John Warren, racing manager to the Queen, said: "It is Her Majesty's first horse to be trained in Australia and Gai Waterhouse is very positive about how he will run as he did a particularly good exhibition gallop at Rose Hill last week."
