Golden Slipper 2012 Field of Second Acceptors

Today the list of juveniles heading towards the famous 2012 Golden Slipper in Sydney this April was cut from 1310 to 244 with the taking of Golden Slipper second acceptances.

Applegate

Applegate looks Peter Snowden's best chance of securing back-to-back Golden Slippers

The richest race of its kind in the world, the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) headlines a crack Easter Saturday race program at Rosehill Gardens on April 7, the meeting to feature an incredible five Group 1 races.

Golden Slipper odds and early betting markets are now due for release at Luxbet shortly as 244 two-year-olds remain in the running to make the 2012 Golden Slipper field.

Premier Sydney trainer Peter Snowden, whose crack colt Sepoy became the first horse in 22 years to score the Blue Diamond Stakes – Golden Slipper double last autumn, has paid up for 30 from his juvenile contingent as he seeks back-to-back Slippers.

The most notable of Snowden’s Golden Slipper second acceptors include Elusive Quality colt Rusambo, Exceed And Excel colt Forget and his Melbourne Cup Day winning filly Applegate.

Many of the best Golden Slipper hopes will first contest the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield in Melbourne on February 25, including Applegate.

In the latest Blue Diamond Stakes odds Applegate is one of the early favourites at $9 through Luxbet.

Other top Blue Diamond Stakes chances also on way to the Golden Slipper include David Hayes’ Chairman’s Stakes winner from last Saturday Mama’s Choice and Blue Diamond Preview winner The Travelling Man.

The trainer boasting possibly the most imposing Golden Slipper-bound juvenile army is Ms Gai Waterhouse who has 13 second acceptors.

The quality of Waterhouse’s current crop of two-year-olds is second to none and includes Magic Millions Classic winner Driefontein, No Looking Back who was regulated to second in the same race upon protest, More Than Ready gelding Raceway who won their debut by four lengths, Breeders Plate winner Pierro who won their Rosehill trial on Tuesday and Red Dazzler filly Kuchinskaya who will look to break her maiden status at Rosehill this weekend.

“Driefontein will certainly stay in Sydney and Gai may give her one start in the next two to three weeks then possibly a barrier trial some weeks before the Golden Slipper,” Star Thoroughbreds owner-operator Denise Martin said on Tuesday.

“She has already earned her place in the Slipper field having won that Group 3 (BJ McLachlan Stakes) in Queensland.

“You would imagine she has secured a place.”

Also with a high number of Golden Slipper chances still in the running is Nathan Tinkler’s powerhouse racing operation Patinack Farm with 23.

Leading the way for Patinack Farm are the likes of Listed Gimcrack Stakes winner Hussousa and Elusive Quality filly Real Stolle who claimed the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate (1000m) at Flemington last-time out on Emirates Stakes Day.

Connections now have until Monday April 2 to make a late Golden Slipper entry, any horses entered from now until then attracting a hefty $150,000 late entry fee.

Final acceptances revealing the official 2012 Golden Slipper field will then be taken and released on Tuesday April 3 and published right here at Races.com.au.
