Samaready Shortens for 2012 Golden Slipper – Odds Update

Following her blistering success in the Reisling Stakes on Saturday Mick Price’s unbeaten filly Samaready has firmed even further in her favouritism to win the richest juvenile’s race of them all, the Golden Slipper 2012 at Rosehill Gardens on Easter Saturday, April 7.

Samaready is on track for the 2012 Golden Slipper following a Reisling Stakes win over the weekend

More Than Ready two-year-old Samaready has won all four of her career starts to date including the coveted Blue Diamond Stakes by three lengths last month.

She raced for the first time since on Saturday and easily beat home a field of fellow fillies in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), which was her first look at a Sydney track.

Samaready has been slammed by the punters since her win on Saturday in the futures markets for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m).

In the latest Golden Slipper odds at bookmaker.com.au Samaready is in from $3.30 pre-Reisling to a short $2.50, and the confidence of her connections is high.

The Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzerland, meanwhile, has drifted out from $11 to $14 after finishing two and a half lengths away fourth to Samaready in the Reisling.

If successful on April 7 Samaready will join Bounding Away (1986) and Courtza (1989) as the only fillies to take out the Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper Stakes double.

The Reisling Stakes has recently produced two Golden Slipper winners in Belle Du Jour (2000) and Polar Success (2003), Samaready striving to be the next.

The other big player in the Golden Slipper betting markets is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Pierro who is the $5.50 second elect through bookmaker.com.au.

Lonhro colt Pierro showed they were on track for a Golden Slipper bid when they held on in a gritty finish to beat home the Peter Snowden-trained Epaulette by a narrow margin in Saturday’s $300,000 Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m).

The Todman Stakes was the only race last year’s famed Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper winner Sepoy lost leading up to the Slipper.

Pierro now pays $5.50 for the Golden Slipper 2012, Epaulette into $10 through bookmaker.com.au.

Waterhouse is out for her fourth Golden Slipper success following victories with Ha Ha (2001), Dance Hero (2004) and Sebring (2001) and expressed her confidence in Pierro after his win on Saturday.

“Pierro is an outstanding two-year-old, the most dominant colt in Australia,” she said.

Price too is aware of Pierro’s talent and was wary of meeting him in the Golden Slipper.

“It looked to me like Pierro has some mental improvement to come,” Price said.

“I’ve always liked him and I don’t think the margin (of his win on Saturday) was indicative of the horse he is.

“I’m not underestimating him in the Golden Slipper. He’s going to enjoy 1200 metres off a fast speed.”

One thing working firmly against Pierro, however, is that no Todman Stakes winner since 1991 has gone on to win the Golden Slipper.

Two starts back Pierro also won the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes and no Silver Slipper Stakes winner has gone on to take out the Golden Slipper since 1977.

Black Caviar’s half-brother All Too Hard remains the $6.50 third favourite for the Golden Slipper despite being an unlikely acceptor for the lucrative feature.

Four length winner of the Group 2 Henry Bucks Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Flemington last time out, All Too Hard races in the $175,000 Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) this Saturday with a Golden Slipper decision to follow.
