Promising two-year-old Greytfilly has departed Queensland and will join Gai Waterhouse’s Randwick stables for a tilt at the two-year-old triple crown which includes the Group 1 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m).
The Ferocity filly was previously with Queensland’s premier trainer Robert Heathcote but has been transferred with the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in mind.
While the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on April 6 is the holy grail of two-year-old races, the youngster will also be aimed at the Group 1 2013 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) on April 13 and the 2013 Champagne Stakes (1600m) on April 27.
Waterhouse will be charged with the task of rectifying Greytfilly’s barrier troubles which have hampered her throughout the early stages of her career.
A $30,000 yearling purchase at last year’s Gold Coast Magic Millions sales, she has won once and recorded three minor placings from five starts.
Her only victory to date was particularly impressive, winning by three lengths at Doomben in late October.
That was backed up in December when she finished second to Mishani Gladiator and beat home eventual Magic Millions Classic winner Real Surreal in the Sky Racing iPhone App Handicap at Doomben.
Greytfilly earned a start in the Magic Millions on the back of her early career success but was unable to have an impact, finishing five lengths off Real Surreal in ninth place.
Waterhouse’s racing manager Bruce Slade said they would be looking to get her to the races in the “not too distant future.”
The former Queenslander will form part of a big two-year-old team for Waterhouse who will be chasing her fifth Golden Slipper title.
The Sydney trainer is coming off a season where she won the two-year-old triple crown with star colt Pierro.
