She Brings Joy getting in the deciding stride to win the Royal Stakes.

Stakes winner She Brings Joy has been ruled out of the Gr.1 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks.

“She’s out until the spring,” said trainer Stephen Marsh. “She’s a big, strong, heavy-topped horse and she puts a bit of pressure on her legs so we’ve decided to give her a decent break.”

She Brings Joy broke her maiden at her fourth appearance when she won the Gr.2 Royal Stakes at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day.
