Golden Slipper 2012 Late Entry for Doubtfilly

Yesterday the connections of smart Queensland filly Doubtfilly paid the hefty $150,000 late entry to give her the chance in the world’s richest two-year-olds’ race, the 2012 Golden Slipper this Saturday.

The highlight event of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) runs at Rosehill Gardens on Easter Saturday with final acceptances taken later this morning.

Late entries for the classic closed yesterday with just one additional juvenile paid up for in Doubtfilly.

Purchased for a steal for just $17,5000 at the 2011 Magic Millions QTIS 600 Yearling Sales, the daughter of Not a Single Doubt is trained in the sunshine state by Mackay-based horseman Stuart Kendrick.

With four wins from her seven starts to date Doubtfilly has already rewarded connections with a lucrative $338,700 in prize money, more than paying back her very moderate purchase price.

After three straight in Queensland this time in Kendrick took Doubtfilly to Rosehill for her interstate debut last Saturday.

Although she didn’t continue the winning streak she did finish a very credible fourth behind Ichihara, beaten less than a length in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m).

Connections are now hoping she can sneak into the coveted 2012 Golden Slipper field with the news that Ichihara would not be paid up for and that early favourite All Too Hard would also be absent from the clash.

With acceptances pending Golden Slipper betting has been put on hold at bookmakers around the country, but Doubtfilly is expected to open at around $50 in the updated markets.

Kendrick, who also part owns Doubtfilly, is well aware of the hole left in her owners’ pockets after the Golden Slipper late entry, but remains positive that the huge risk will pay off in the best of ways.

“If a financial adviser was involved in something like this I’m sure it would be far from an ideal scenario” Kendrick admitted.

“But it’s more of a heart thing than a head thing.

“When you buy horses in my price range there are no guarantees you are going to get one good enough again to ever get close to running in a Golden Slipper.

“Admittedly it’s going to be a tough task but the big thing is she has done a great job already.

“She has given all us the opportunity to be in a race chasing two million dollars alongside people like Nathan Tinkler.

“We might never be in this position again.”

On Saturday jockey Damien Oliver, aboard Doubtfilly for the first time in the Magic Night Stakes, will retain the ride as he seeks his second Golden Slipper victory following his victory with Forensics in 2007.

With All Too Hard out of the equation Golden Slipper odds will be led by Mick Price’s unbeaten filly Samaready out to repeat the Blue Diamond Stakes – Golden Slipper double achieved by Sepoy for the first time in over two decades last year.
