2010 Golden Slipper Win for Brightexpectations to Benefit Charity

With one of the most competitive and exciting Golden Slipper fields in years, punters can be excused for finding it tough to pick their favourite for this Saturday?s $3.5million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill.

But one thing is for sure, with the announcement by Racing NSW Chief Executive Peter V?landys that if the Gai Waterhouse-trained Brightexpectations wins the Golden Slipper a share of the $2 million first prize will go to charity, more than just the punters will be backing him to win.

Redkite, an organisation that helps children with cancer, has been named as the charity to benefit from a generous share of at least $250, 000 in the Golden Slipper prizemoney should Brightexpectations win.

Brightexpectations is co-owned by The Punters Club, which is made up of 15, 000 members, all of whom will be over the moon come Saturday if their More Than Ready colt can beat home the tough competition in the Golden Slipper.

Brightexpectations, winner of the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes last start, is currently the $6 third favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au for a win in the 2010 Golden Slipper behind classy Queensland filly Military Rose ($3.70) and the well-drawn Crystal Lily ($5).
