Aegean Sea Out of 2015 Golden Slipper Due to Leg Injury

Clarry Conners’ chances at winning the 2015 Golden Slipper have greatly diminished after Aegean Sea was sidelined for six months due to a leg injury.

Aegean Sea missed a scheduled run on Saturday due to the injury and the long spell means the promising two-year-old filly will also miss out on the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21, which Conners believes she had a big chance at winning.

Aegean Sea impressed at Kensington on November 22, winning the Surf Meets The Turf Plate (1000m) on her debut. The filly went straight to the front after jumping and controlled the race at a nice tempo. She put two lengths on her rivals at the turn and held the margin until late; was just able to hang on to win half a length clear of Denpurr in second.

This followed a barrier trial win earlier in the month in which the filly jumped very smartly from out wide and took up the running. She did it very easy out in front and at a smart time.

Conners will now prepare Look To The Stars for the $3.5 million juvenile race, however the filly has yet to make her debut.

While she is entered for the Pro Ride Plate (1000m) at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, the trainer is tempted by the Inglis Nursery (1000m) at Randwick on Saturday, offering a lucrative $250,000 in total prize money.

“It’s very disappointing that Aegean Sea won’t be going to the Slipper. She needs six months out,” Conners told Sky Racing.

“Look To The Stars is a nice filly. She ran fourth in her first trial behind Aegean Sea and second in her second trial.

“I’m undecided about what to do with her this week.

“She is an Inglis filly so the race on Saturday is a temptation.

“I will just have to talk it over with her owners and decide what to do.”

Aegean Sea will hopefully return after her six month recovery stint stronger than ever and ready to reach her winning potential at the highest level of racing.
