Can Samaready Win 2012 Golden Slipper?

April 5, 2012

Can Samaready Win 2012 Golden Slipper?

She is undefeated, the short-priced favourite and this year’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner. So can the Mick Price-trained Samaready salute for the punters and add the Golden Slipper 2012 title to her record this Saturday at Rosehill?


Samaready is the clear 2012 Golden Slipper betting favourite

Sitting top of the odds for the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m), more Than Ready filly Samaready looks just that, more than ready to maintain her flawless record with another win.

She has flown through her opening four career starts including her huge three length romp in the Blue Diamond Stakes, and showed no sign of stopping last start when putting two lengths on a decent field in the Reisling Stakes over the Golden Slipper track and distance.

She has beaten the boys before, but not these boys, and from barrier 11 Samaready could be a little vulnerable.

So can the favourite peak again and score become this year’s Golden Slipper winner?

See below for the team’s look at the pros and cons of backing Samaready in the Golden Slipper markets at this year.

Yes – Samaready Will Be The 2012 Golden Slipper Winner

  • She is undefeated in four career starts to date, one of three unbeaten horses in the race
  • Has won her last three by a collective 9.5 lengths
  • Won the Blue Diamond Stakes and is out to complete the Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper double Sepoy won last year
  • Has won the most prize money of this field, an impressive $915,150
  • Fillies have a good record having won 23 times, most recently with Crystal Lily (2010)
  • Barrier 11, while on paper could be tricky, is within the 8 – 12 gate range Price indicated he wanted to draw
  • Barrier 11 has produced three Golden Slipper winners over the years, most recently the Gai Waterhouse-trained Ha Ha (2001)
  • Comes off a win at the track and distance, one of only four horses to have won previously over 1200m at Rosehill
  • Is undefeated in her two runs over 1200-metres

No – Samaready Won’t Win The Golden Slipper 2012

  • Barrier 11 could be a little awkward and there are dangers drawn inside that will have plenty left in the tank at the end including Pierro (barrier one), No Looking Back (barrier three) and Epaulette (barrier four)
  • Is yet to face many of her main rivals in this race
  • It is the world’s richest race for 2YO’s and they are all in it to win it, this is the Grand Final, not a drill
