Can Earthquake Give Darley Another Golden Slipper Win?

Classy filly Earthquake is a clear favourite in 2014 Golden Slipper betting markets and is rated an excellent chance of giving the Darley racing operation their second win in the Group 1 event.

Earthquake made her racing debut with an impressive win in the Colin Pearce Birthday Plate (1000m) at Royal Randwick on November 9 and took out the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m) at Caulfield on February 8 before scoring her maiden win at Group 1 level in the Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

The Exceed And Excel mare maintained her stranglehold on Golden Slipper favoritism in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), but eased marginally in betting after she drew barrier 12 and trainer Peter Snowden reported that she had been treated for a mild temperature on Sunday.

Can Earthquake bounce back from her minor setback and end Snowden’s stay at Darley with a win in the 2014 Golden Slipper?
