Golden Slipper Odds 2012 Update – Samaready & Ashokan Shorten

Money is starting to roll in for this Saturday’s much awaited 2012 Golden Slipper showdown in Sydney, but it isn’t just the short-priced favourite Samaready the punters are after with odds also firming for one of the outsiders in Ashokan.


Favourite Samaready is one of two horses to firm in the 2012 Golden Slipper odds since Tuesday's barrier draw

The $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) will take centre stage at Rosehill Gardens as Race 7 at 3:50pm on Saturday, the second time in history the race falls on Easter Saturday.

Of the 16 smart two-year-olds’ engaged in this year’s Golden Slipper field, the early markets at are dominated by Mick Price’s Blue Diamond winning filly Samaready.

Undefeated over her smart four-start career to date, Samaready eased out slightly in the Golden Slipper odds yesterday after she drew barrier 11.

The punters at were quick to snatch her up at $2.60, however, and she has come back into $2.50.

The big Golden Slipper betting market mover, however, has been the John O’Shea-trained Ashokan in from $51 to $41 through

While still one of the roughies of the field it is obvious some of the racetrack whispers at least are saying this More Than Ready colt will be the smokey in the field.

Ashokan has raced just twice before, most recently when beating home the Gai Waterhouse-trained Raceway in the Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m) on a Slow (7) Randwick track on March 17.

While Raceway is at $15 to win Waterhouse her fourth Golden Slipper this year, Ashokan was originally abandoned by the punters after they drew wide with barrier 14 for Saturday.

All of O’Shea’s three Golden Slipper chances suffered nasty gates, in fact, with $101 roughie Faustus in 13 and Shelford ($81) in 15.

On Saturday Ashokan will be ridden by ace young Kiwi hoop James McDonald for the first time with regular rider Jim Cassidy, aboard 2001 Golden Slipper winner Ha Ha for Waterhouse, booked to partner their rough chance stablemate Faustus.

While the odds on second and third favourites Pierro ($6), another of Waterhouse’s five-strong contingent, and the Peter Snowden-trained Epaulette ($6.50) have remained steady, Gai Waterhouse’s Blue Diamond runner-up No Looking Back has eased out form $8.50 to $9 at

First over the line in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic at the Gold Coast back in January, No Looking Back lost that race on protest to her fellow Golden Slipper starting stablemate Driefontein, ahead of her eye-catching last-to-second Blue Diamond performance.

Not having raced since February 25, however, the punters have been a little shy to back this smart filly.

The price on Driefontein has also drifted out slightly in the Slipper odds at, the last-start Widden Stakes winner out from $14 to $15.

Other market drifters include Gerald Ryan’s Magic Night Stakes runner-up Cavalry Rose ($21 out to $26) and their stablemate Snitzerland ($21 out to $26).
