Golden Slipper Race is on for 2011 Pago Pago Final Field

The race towards the 2011 Golden Slipper on April 2 heats up this Saturday with a ballot exemption into the richest two-year-olds race in the word on offer to the winner of the $175,000 Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m).

Golden Archer

Golden Archer is a favourite to win the 2011 Pago Pago Stakes this Saturday

Scheduled as one of nine quality races on the Rosehill Guineas Day card, the 2011 Pago Pago Stakes final field features nine two-year-olds colts and geldings.

Leading the list of acceptors is the Peter Moody-trained Golden Archer.

Despite not being nominated for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m), Rock Of Gibraltar colt Golden Archer is seventh on the order of entry for the showdown having amassed over $306,000 in prize money in his career to date.

Connections have until next Monday, March 28, to pay the $150,000 late entry fee to get Golden Archer into the Golden Slipper field.

A winner of five of his six starts, Golden Archers sole defeat was his third place finish behind top Golden Slipper fancy Sepoy in the Blue Diamond Preview back in January.

On Saturday Golden Archer will attempt his fourth straight win, jumping from barrier eight and advantages from the drop back from 57kg he carried to victory last start in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley to 55.5kg for the Pago Pago.

You’re Canny is another last-start winner lining up in the Pago Pago Stakes, the Canberra-based Canny Lad gelding having scored an upset victory over one-time Golden Slipper favourite Karuta Queen in the Listed Black Opal Stakes (1200m) on Sunday March 13.

All six of the 2011 Golden Slipper nominees running in the Pago Pago Stakes are well down the order of entry and odds and need to win on Saturday to move up into the field.

Of the contenders, Flying Zero is the shortest-priced entry in the Golden Slipper odds at Luxbet still a roughie in the market paying $81.

Due to jump from a good barrier four draw on Saturday with Nash Rawiller booked for the ride, the Chris Waller-trained Danzero colt has had just one start to date running second in a 1200m maiden at Canterbury on March 9.
