She’s A Fox and She Wants a Golden Slipper 2012 Spot

On Saturday Anthony Cummings’ promising Fastnet Rock filly She’s A Fox will look to sneak into the 2012 Golden Slipper field with a win in the Magic Night Stakes at Rosehill Garden’s Rosehill Guineas Day.

The last of the juvenile features for fillies offering the winner a ballot free ride into the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) on Saturday week, this weekend’s $175,000 Group 2 Magic Night Sakes (1200m) is shaping up as a top showdown between the likes of Brisbane raider Doubtfilly, Sweet Embrace Stakes runner-up Valerio, the Gerald Ryan-trained Cavalry Rose and the undefeated Ichihara.

Another genuine hope in the Magic Night Stakes this year, and one that needs to win in order to gain a Golden Slipper start, is She’s A Fox.

A full-sister to last weekend’s upset Group 1 William Reid Stakes winner at the Valley Foxwedge, She’s a Fox goes into the Magic Night Stakes on the back of a winning debut at Canterbury.

Racing over 1100-metres against a field of fellow two-year-old maiden fillies under the lights, She’s A Fox was ridden by Hugh Bowman, Peter Robl to take over riding duties on Saturday, and hit the line one and three quarters of a length ahead of Ominscient.

“She was pretty impressive when she won at Canterbury,” Cummings said.

“She did all the things we expected her to do.”

She will now be tried over 1200-metres in a Group 2 field, a notable class rise for the filly purchased for a hefty $600,000 at the 2011 Australian Easter Yearling Sales.

Win or lose already She’s A Fox is worth a pretty penny as a broodmare thanks to the William Reid success of Foxwedge, a wonderful advertisement for her breeding.

“We were cheering as loudly as anyone when Foxwedge won,” Cummings said.

In the latest Golden Slipper odds at bookmaker.com.au She’s A Fox is rated a $31 outsider, markets led by Mick Price’s undefeated Blue Diamond Stakes winner Samaready ($2.50).

If successful in maintaining her unbeaten record in the Magic Night Stakes She’s A Fox is sure to firm in her price to win the Golden Slipper.

One thing Cummings is hoping for on Saturday is that She’s A Fox draws a nice gate, which he thinks will make all the difference.

“Like a lot of horses she is going to need a barrier but if she gets one then she’s a real chance,” he said.

If she misses out on the ballot exemption on the weekend Cummings said they would still be paying the $30,000 final acceptance fee for the golden Slipper on Tuesday April 3, keeping their fingers crossed she makes the cut.

“Providing she runs a good race, we’ll accept for the Slipper and take it from there,” Cummings said.

The 2012 Magic Night Stakes field, as well as the other Rosehill race acceptances for Saturday, will be out on Wednesday.
