With the $3.5 million Golden Slipper due to run as Race 6 at Rosehill Racecourse today April 7, 2012, betting markets are beginning to settle into their final positions.
Samaready is currently the $2.70 favourite at bookmaker.com.au to win the 2012 Golden Slipper today.
The filly is still well-backed despite her wide barrier of 11, with jockey Craig Newitt declaring her to be the best horses in the race.
“I’ll be riding her like she’s the best horse; I believe she is,” Newitt said.
“If I can still be sitting on her at the top of the straight without spending any petrol and, as (trainer) Mick (Price) said, not being knocked down early in the race, she will explode when I let her go.
“Her past couple of runs I have used her before the corner to put her into the race. She’s got there that quick I’ve had to grab hold again halfway up the straight.
“If I only have to make one run on her, God help them.”
Pierro is presently the $6 second favourite to pass the post first in the 2012 Golden Slipper.
The Lonhro colt is currently unbeaten over his three previous race starts, with his most recent being in the Group 2 Todman Stakes at Rosehill.
Pierro, who was purchased from the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale, has now earned more than $360,000 in prize money.
Epaulette is currently on the third line of betting at bookmaker.com.au and is paying odds of $7.50 to win the 2012 Golden Slipper.
The Commands colt won the $250,000 Black Opal Stakes first-up this autumn before finishing second by a nose to Pierro in his next start in the Todman Stakes.
Epaulette has won two of his three race starts and has earned more than $240,000 in prize money.
