Hussousa Heading for Golden Slipper 2012

John Thompson’s unbeaten filly Hussousa has the Patinack Farm stable excited ahead of the autumn, a successful Sydney trial last week giving connections confidence she can go all the way to the 2012 Golden Slipper in April.

A nicely-bred daughter of Husson out of Redoute’s Choice mare Petousa, Hussousa has had just one official race start to date but already there is talk of her winning the famous $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m), the world’s richest race for two-year-olds running at Rosehill on April 7.

She debuted at Royal Randwick on October 1 last year and easily accounted for a class field to win the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m).

In the Gimcrack Hussousa put one and a half lengths on runner-up Snipzu, Liam Birchley’s smart Brisbane filly going on to win at Eagle Farm by seven lengths a fortnight later ahead of a second Eagle Farm win and two black type placings before her ninth in the Magic Millions Classic last time out.

Hussousa caught the eye at Randwick’s Kensington track last Friday when she won her 855m trial in a solid time of 50.80 seconds, which was faster than John O’Shea’s boom colt Foxwedge won their hitout (51.20) in that morning.

“We are very excited about Hussousa,” Tinkler’s racing manger Robyn Hartney said this week.

The $100,000 Listed Widden Stakes (1100m) at Warwick Farm on February 18 is scheduled as the first-up run for Hussousa before she goes to Group company for the first time in the $200,000 Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on March 3.

“She will go to the Silver Slipper on March 3 after the Widden and probably have one more start in one of the fillies lead-ups before the Golden Slipper on April 7,” Hartney said.

Hussousa’s classy stablemate Pane In The Glass will also resume at Warwick Farm on February 18 in the $175,000 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m).

Hussousa opened 13th on the tentative 2012 Golden Slipper order of entry released by the ATC yesterday, the ballot based on prize money earned by the candidates to date.

Thompson and Patinack Farm also have a strong hand in an earlier two-year-olds feature in Melbourne having paid up for nine juveniles at third declaration stage for the Patinack Farm-sponsored $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) this week.

Their best chance in the Caulfield feature on February 25 is considered to be Elusive Quality filly Real Stolle, winner of the Group 3 Mariybrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day.

Real Stolle is currently rated a $17 chance in the Blue Diamond Stakes odds at Luxbet which are firmly led by $5 favourite Jimando.

She is set to race next in the $125,000 Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (Fillies) over 1100m at Caulfield on February 2, while Jimando returns to racing this Saturday at the same track in the $100,000 Listed Emirates Airline Stakes (1100m).
