This is the first Group rated event for 2yod during the Sydney autumn carnival, this is the time honored stepping stone onto the world’s richest two year old race, the Golden Slipper.

The Golden Slipper Stakes is an Australian Turf Club Group 1 Thoroughbred horse race for two-year-olds run over 1,200 metres (6 furlongs) on turf at set weights conditions, held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, Australia. It is the premier two year old race in Australia and is the world’s richest race for two year old Thoroughbreds. Prize money is A$3,500,000.

This year, here is the line up:

No Horse Trainer Jockey Barrier Weight

2 KHAN Peter & Paul Snowden 7 56.5kg
3 SHOWTIME Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes Tommy Berry 1 56.5kg
4 LIGHTZ Jim & Greg Lee Jason Collett 6 56.5kg
5 SHE WILL REIGN Gary Portelli Ben Melham 5 54.5kg
6 LUCKY LOUIE Anthony Cummings Glyn Schofield 3 54.5kg
7 MYSTIC EMPIRE Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott Adam Hyeronimus 2 54.5kg

Our Selections are:

1. Veranillo, (Medaglia d’Oro)
2. She Will Reign, (Manhattan Rain)
3. Khan (Exceed and Excell)

She Will Reign is a fast filly, she has made the competition look weak at every start. Veranillo from the Godolphin stable is also unbeaten and this Colt will give She Will Reign a run for her money, he loves this distance and I see him catching She Will Reign in the last 100m. Khan has raced well and should be there abouts at the finish.
