2015 Silver Slipper Stakes Nominations Extended

Just ten two-year-olds have been nominated for the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill this Saturday, however they are all serious contenders to take out the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) next month.

Team HawkesMossfun won the race last year on her way to taking the Golden Slipper so this year’s will be one to watch.

Ottoman and Vancouver are co-favourites in the 2015 Golden Slipper futures betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, both offering odds of $7 to win the world’s richest juvenile race on March 21, and have both been nominated for the Silver Slipper Stakes.

The John O’Shea-trained Ottoman shot to the top of the betting after winning the Tab Place Multi Plate (1100m) on debut back in December. The filly resumed on February 9 in her first official trial of the year, making up very nice ground under a hold in the straight.

Gai Waterhouse’s Vancouver is favourite of the boys after winning his two career starts. The colt made his debut last October in the Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate, in which he was fast out to find the front. He kept kicking all the way, holding the favourite off in a strong leading effort.

Following a three month spell, the colt resumed in the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m), one of just six runners following a rain-affected Rosehill track. Vancouver proved he can win on soft ground, after he hit the front at 100 metres and won three-quarters of a length in front of Outreach.

Along with Ottoman, Godolphin has also nominated Holler from their lucrative stable of juvenile horses. The colt debuted in the Hyland Race Colours Plate (1100m) on January 17. He was fast out to find the front then sat just outside the leaders. Holler was just half a length back at the turn before levelling up with 250 metres to go. He gave a great kick and came away over the concluding stages.

The Pat Farrell-trained Alart won his maiden on his second start during the spring, resuming at Dubbo on February 8 to win over 1000 metres.

Mishani Honcho has already enjoyed plenty of success as a two-year-old, finishing in the first three in six of his seven starts.

The Les Ross-trained gelding won the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at the Gold Coast back in December but missed out on a place in the $2 million Magic Millions Classic (1200m) on January 10. The gelding travelled to the Sunshine Coast the following week instead, winning the Racing Minister’s Classic by two and a half lengths.

David Vandyke’s Kylie’s Fame is the only runner making their debut in the 2015 Silver Slipper Stakes.
