2016 Golden Slipper Goal for Yankee Rose

Another early career win from promising filly Yankee Rose has Warwick Farm horseman David Vandyke excited about her Golden Slipper 2016 prospects next Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Yet to saddle-up a starter in the world’s richest race for juveniles, Vandyke hopes that can change next April as he targets the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) with his currently undefeated daughter of All American Yankee Rose.

On debut at Rosehill Gardens on October 31 the Darby Racing-owned filly kicked off her career with a win over Faraway Town over 1100m before winning at the same track and distance last Saturday in the lucrative $150,000 Jimmy “The Pumper” Cassidy Golden Gift (1100m).

Ridden by Jason Collett, who was also in the saddle for the filly’s winning debut over the boys, Yankee Rose had a long neck to spare on the line over James Cummings’ Artie Schiller colt Good Standing ($19) and impressed Vandyke with her run over the distance.

Vandyke has the $10,000 bargain buy, who has already amassed $177,200 in prize money including $40,000 in BOBS bonuses, pegged as a potential miler hoping to eventually run her in late April at Royal Randwick in the $400,000 Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m).

Before then however he will gun for the big two-year-old prize of next season in the Golden Slipper should everything go to plan, Yankee Rose already banking enough earnings to get into the line-up.

“I’m still coming to grips with that performance and the fact that we have a runner in the Golden Slipper,” he said according to Arrowfield Stud.

“I know this filly will get over further – the Champagne Stakes is actually the race I had tagged for her long term but to see her finish like that over 1100 (metres), she’s quality.

“She’s very exciting and the thing she has got going for her is she’s tough, real tough.”

Fillies have a solid recent record in the Golden Slipper with three winning in the past five years with Crystal Lily (2010), Overreach (2013) and most recently the Team Hawkes-trained Mossfun (2014).

The very early 2016 Golden Slipper nominations were taken back in July featuring over 2000 youngsters before the first round of acceptances in October.

The next round of declarations close in February next year with late entries into the lucrative classic open until mid-March.
