No 2013 Golden Slipper for Real Surreal

Kelso Wood will resist the urge to chase the riches in the $3.5 million 2013 Golden Slipper with Magic Millions winner Real Surreal and instead freshen the filly for a tilt at the 2013 Brisbane Winter Carnival.

Real Surreal

Magic Millions winner Real Surreal is unlikely to contest the Golden Slipper.

The Queensland youngster showed she had the talent to be a Slipper contender when unleashing a sharp turn of foot to beat home Sweet Idea and Missy Longstocking on Saturday but Wood indicated he will take a more cautionary path.

“I’m not one to push on to the Golden Slipper. I could have done the same thing with Sizzling, but the spell we gave him made him. It will make her too,” Wood told News Limited.

The move to rest Sizzling paid dividends last year as he produced an unbeaten winter campaign which included victories in the Group 1 TJ Smith, Group 2 Champagne Classic and Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

While Real Surreal is already a standout among her peers, Wood was confident post-race that she is going to develop into a serious big-race contender as her career progresses.

“She’s a great filly, she’s going to be a beautiful three-year-old. She’s always shown me plenty of ability,” Wood said.

It was a much-desired win for Wood who had a victory overturned on protest as a jockey 25 years ago when he crossed the line in front aboard Regent Prince.

“It’s 25 years since I won and lost the last one but I’m not going to lose this one,” Wood said.

It was the third win from four starts for the Real Saga filly who was backing up just seven days after a 3 1/2 length romp at Eagle Farm.

The win also delivered the first Magic Millions Classic success for jockey Michael Cahill who has had plenty of rides in the race in recent years.
