Slipper Didn’t Fit but Salade Returns for Doncaster Day


Salade will seek their second career win in the Fernhill Handicap

Bart Cummings’ lightly-raced two-year-old Salade may have failed to find form in the Golden Slipper, but the Snitzel colt is ready to return to the track and hopefully post their second career win in the $100,000 Fernhill Handicap (1600m).

Salade stormed into contention for the world’s richest juveniles’ race, the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper, when he won on debut beating a quality field in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on March 26.

“Horses like Theseo and Duporth kicked off here (in the Pago Pago) so he looks to have a very bright future,” Cummings said after Salade’s debut win.

Despite being well-backed in the Golden Slipper markets, Salade could only manage to finish five and a half lengths away eighth to runaway winner Sepoy when the Golden Slipper took place on April 2.

Cummings will now bring Salade back at Randwick, the colt one of 12 acceptors for the Saturday’s opening race, the 2011 Fernhill Handicap.

Stepping up to the mile, Salade has been allocated the hefty topweight of 58.5kg for Saturday and has also drawn wide with barrier 10.

Other notable two-year-olds running in this year’s Fernhill Handicap include Exceed And Exalt (barrier eight) who was disappointing finishing last in the Group 1 Inglis Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) last Saturday, David Payne’s Testa Rossa  gelding Cocky Raider (barrier five) who ran second behind Do You Think in the Group 3 The Schweppervescence (1400m) on Golden Slipper Day and the Gai Waterhouse-trained Satirical Boy drawn ideally in barrier one.

Purchased for $65,000 at the Magic Millions Yearling Sales Salade is a son of Magic Millions graduate Snitzel from the mare Just As Beautiful and to date has won $155,000 in prize money for connections.
