Late 2015 Golden Slipper Entry for Odyssey Moon

Connections of Rodney Northam’s undefeated colt Odyssey Moon are likely to pay the hefty late entry fee to get him into the Golden Slipper 2015 this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival if he can win his next start.

The son of Snitzel won his trial at home at Scone in late November before debuting at Royal Randwick on December 13 in the lucrative $250,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m), a race last year’s Golden Slipper winner Mossfun also won on debut.

Donning the blinkers the youngster jumped from a wide barrier 14 of 15 draw with Tye Angland aboard and after a weaving run he got to the front with 25m left to run before drawing clear to beat Kimberly Star by a quarter length.

His next assignment is now scheduled as the $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m) at Rosehill on February 7, which if he wins he’ll likely be aimed at the world’s richest race for juveniles.

“If he comes out and wins that race well, then we will make sure we get him heading towards the Slipper,” Northam said.

The $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) runs back at Rosehill Gardens on March 21 and it will cost connections $150,000 in late entry fees, to be paid by March 14, to get Odyssey Moon into the race.

Sent for a two week freshen-up after his successful debut, Northam told Racenet the youngster has been back in work and doing well ahead of his return to the track.

“He’s one hundred percent,” he said.

“Going super.”

Before his Inglis Classic return Odyssey Moon will trial at Muswellbrook on January 28.
