Criterion Heads Latest Golden Slipper 2013 Order of Entry

Racing NSW has this week released the latest order of entry for the 2013 Golden Slipper, running at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday April 6, with David Payne’s Todman Stakes winner Criterion topping the prize money ballot.

Of the 38 Golden Slipper-bound juveniles that have won more than $30,000 in prize money five are exempt from ballot including the highest-earner of the lot, Sebring colt Criterion with $390,450.

A winner on debut at Rosehill last November Criterion resumed with a third in the Canonbury Stakes back in February.

From there he has won back-to-back feature races firstly in the Black Opal Stakes at Canberra and then last Saturday with a tight victory over Fast ‘N’ Rocking in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) when ridden by Craig Williams for the first time.

That win saw Criterion shorten in the markets for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) and they now occupy the second line of betting at a quote of $10.

The firm favourite in the Golden Slipper odds is Gai Waterhouse’s flying Exceed And Excel filly Overreach.

Backing up from her scintillating six length Widden Stakes win last month she confirmed her position as the Golden Slipper top elect with another emphatic victory at Rosehill this time by 4.5 lengths in the Group 2 Moet & Chandon Stakes (1200m) last Saturday.

Overreach is also second on the Golden Slipper order of entry with $263,330 in eligible earnings.

The three other exempt juveniles are then Silver Slipper Stakes winner Sweet Idea ($217,600), Skyline Stakes champ All The Talk ($159,650) and Sweet Embrace Stakes winner Romantic Moon ($97,680) who pay $17, $16 and $31 respectively in the Slipper markets.

The other horses inside the top 10 in the order of entry and their current Golden Slipper price are then Todman Stakes runner-up Fast ‘N’ Rocking ($21), one-time favourite Villa Verde ($11) who ran second to Overreach last start, unlikely runner Kuroshio ($101), the Peter Snowden-trained Guelph ($17) and Whiskey Allround who is yet to be nominated or added into the Slipper markets.

Connections have until 11am (AEST) on Monday April 1 to pay the late entry fee of $150,000 to get any non-nominated two-year-olds into Golden Slipper contention.

The final acceptance fee of $30,000 is then due by 9am (AEST) on Tuesday April 2 revealing the 2013 Golden Slipper field.
