Latest Golden Slipper 2012 Ods – Ashokan Betting Market Mover

With the favourite Samaready easing in her price to become the latest star juvenile at Rosehill tomorrow, the genuine 2012 Golden Slipper betting market mover is Ashokan who will be ridden in the world’s richest two-year-olds’ race by ace young Kiwi hoop James McDonald.


Based on breeding and bloodlines Raceway looks a good 2012 Golden Slipper chance

Mick Price’s undefeated Blue Diamond Stakes winner Samaready continues to drift in the markets for the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) after she drew barrier 11 of 16.

It is not only the Golden Slipper barrier that has seen Samaready come out from a short $2.50 to $2.65, it’s also that people are starting to do the form and get to know some of the other dangers in this field.

The youngster that has seen the biggest amount of support in the Golden Slipper odds over the past 24 hours is More Than Ready colt Ashokan, one of three chances for Randwick trainer John O’Shea.

O’Shea’s trio all suffered horror barrier draws with Ashokan in 14, Faustus ($81) in 13 and Shelford ($81) in 15.

Early yesterday punters could get Ashokan as long as $51 in the markets before they were quickly trimmed to $41.

The money has continued to roll in for the last-start Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m) winner, however, and they are now at $26 in the latest Golden Slipper betting markets at

On Saturday Ashokan will be ridden by James McDonald over from New Zealand, the hoop replacing Jim Cassidy who will maintain his association with Faustus.

It will be McDonald’s maiden Golden Slipper riding assignment and the young gun is excited to be there for the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s biggest meeting.

“I’m really looking forward to Saturday and I’m grateful to John for giving me the opportunity,” he said.

McDonald also rates Ashokan as a genuine chance for a Golden Slipper upset having worked them in a pleasing hit out at Randwick on Tuesday.

“Everything is pretty spot-on for him and he worked with a pretty good horse (Group 1 William Reid Stakes winner Foxwedge) so we got a good line on him,” McDonald said.

“He (Foxwedge) is a Group One winner and a three-year-old. A tough worker.

“He (Ashokan) worked really well with him and that gives me some confidence heading into the race.”

Another Golden Slipper hope to come is one of Gai Waterhouse’s five, Raceway in from $15 to $13.

While two of Waterhouse’s other runners are better fancied to hand her her fourth Golden Slipper trophy with the undefeated Pierro ($6) and Blue Diamond runner-up No Looking Back ($9), Raceway is not without their claims.

The More Than Ready rig won back-to-back races at Warwick Farm before their last start second to Ashokan in the Skyline Stakes.

On breeding, however, Raceway is the definite Golden Slipper runner to back being by the same bloodlines as Waterhouse’s third Golden Slipper winner Sebring (2008), both by More Than Ready out of a daughter of another Golden Slipper winner Flying Spur (1995).

“Over the past 20 years, 17 winners have either shared the same sire as a previous winner or were by a former Slipper runner themselves,” ATC Executive General Manager of Racing Matt Rudolph said earlier this year.
