Mishani Gladiator to Be Aimed at 2013 Golden Slipper

Queensland trainer Less Ross is dreaming big with gelding Mishani Gladiator, outlining the $3.5 million 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m) as the ultimate goal for the raw youngster.

After struggling on debut in October, the Eagle Farm-based juvenile justified the opinion of his trainer on Saturday when putting paid to his rivals by a length in the Sky Racing Iphone App Handicap (1110m) at Doomben.

“He was on his toes today [Saturday] and he’s paid up for the Golden Slipper,” Ross said.

“I’ve got a big opinion of him.”

While Ross already has his sights set on big things with the son of Dubawi, he said he is likely to get a greater gauge of his ability next month with a possible test at Warwick Farm over 1000 metres.

Mishani Gladiator is ineligible for the Magic Millions which will see a number of the country’s best juveniles line up to compete for $2 million in prizemoney at the Gold Coast next month.

Ross has only been back training six months after handing in his licence four years ago following a disqualification after a positive swab result from one his gallopers.

At the time Ross “vowed never to come back” but had a change of mind and is clearly excited about the prospects of Mishani Gladiator.

“I was disqualified from training for an elevated bicarb reading about four years ago,” Ross said.

“I was an angry man and was filthy on the world at the time so I handed in my trainers’ licence believing it would be for good.”
