Pierro Wins 2012 Golden Slipper – Rosehill Race 7 Results

Pierro has won the $3.5 million Golden Slipper at Rosehill Racecourse today April 7, 2012.

The two-year-old colt kept his winning streak intact with an eye catching run down the inside straight of the world’s richest race for two-year-olds.


Pierro is the Golden Slipper 2012 winner

Second place-getter Snitzerland put in a gutsy performance out front, but couldn’t quite hang on against the late charge from Pierro.

Race favourite Samaready dug in deep down the final straight to run home to third, while Doubtfilly won her late acceptance fee back with a fourth placing.

It was the fourth Golden Slipper win for Gai Waterhouse, who has previously won with Ha Ha, Dance Hero and Sebring.

Waterhouse had openly stated from day one that Pierro would win the Golden Slipper and was richly rewarded for her training effort today.

“He’s a dominant colt,” Waterhouse said.

“I was amazed he wasn’t favourite for the Slipper.

“He was a fantastic finish wasn’t it?”

The trainer did not touch on Pierro’s upcoming race starts for the remainder of the autumn.

“Let’s worry about that tomorrow,” she said.

“It’s very exciting.”

Jockey Nash Rawiller was given the ride aboard Pierro in the 2012 Golden Slipper.

“He travelled beautifully in the run,” Rawiller said.

“It’s an unbelievable horse.

“Gai tipped this horse 6 months ago to win the Golden Slipper.

“This horse really impressed me from the first day I rode him.

“I was very confident this week.

“I’m just glad he got the job done.

“He’s just won not only Australia’s richest two-year-old race but the benchmark.”

Today’s 2012 Golden Slipper win has taken Pierro’s prize earnings to a whopping $2.36 million in prize money and taken his unbeaten race record to four straight wins.
