Name Change for 2013 Golden Slipper Hope – I’m All The Talk

A name change has been forced upon a 2013 Golden Slipper contender to avoid confusion with a four-year-old gelding based in Queensland.

“Please be advised the horse formerly racing as ‘All The Talk‘ is now known as I’M ALL THE TALK,” A Racing NSW Statement said.

“The change in name was instigated to avoid confusion with ‘All The Torque’.”

The two-year-old son of Stratum has won two of five starts and is one of the main contenders for Saturday week’s $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Trained by Gary Portelli, I’m All The Talk booked his place in the world’s richest two-year-old race earlier this month when he won the Group 3 Skyline Stakes by 3 1/2 lengths.

The colt was put through his paces on Tuesday at Warwick Farm over 800m, leading throughout to clock 48.61 seconds.

While Portelli was pleased with the hit-out he was hoping he could have taken a sit in order to prepare for what are the desired tactics in the Slipper.

“He is capable of settling in behind one, you just need them to go at a decent tempo and I think that is what will happen in the Slipper,” Portelli told TVN.

“Hopefully we draw inside the speed and we can roll out and follow them across.”

I’m All The Talk was nominated for this weekend’s Pago Pago Stakes but Portelli chose not to accept, suggesting that it would be hamper his Slipper ambitions.

“If we did run I think it would hurt our chances in the Golden Slipper.”

I’m All The Talk is currently rated a $16 chance in the Golden Slipper, with Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Overreach a clear favourite at $2.05.
