2016 Golden Slipper Still the Target for Capitalist

Capitalist suffered his first loss in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday but co-trainer Paul Snowden has revealed the colt has suffered no ill-effects from the run and remains on target for the 2016 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 19th.

Capitalist was sent off a resounding odds-on favourite in the Todman Stakes but was unable to make up ground in the straight and finished second behind Kiss And Make Up.

Having been reported to be harbouring mild soreness in his off foreleg following the run Todman Stakes, Snowden told Racing Ahead the Written Tycoon colt is in fact fine and will continue on to his major goal, the 2016 Golden Slipper.

“He’s fine,” Snowden said.

“The reports from the vets were that he’s mildly lame straight after the race. I certainly haven’t seen that in him.

“I followed him up the hill in the truck, trotting him up, he seemed okay.

“Again, we went over him from head-to-toe yesterday morning, he’s definitely not lame.

“If he had to get a vet clearance to race, we could pass him today.

“Dad’s spoken to (Racing NSW chief steward) Mr Murrihy and told him what we found with the horse.

“There’s definitely no issue of lameness.

“Absolutely (going to the Slipper), and was doing that straight after the race.

“There’s no second guesses with what we’re doing with the horse.”

Trialling well in the lead-up to his competitive debut, Capitalist immediately stamped himself as a colt to follow when charging home to win the Listed Breeders’ Plate (1000m) on October 3rd.

Continuing to impress when posting a three length win in the Wyong Magic Millions 2.y.o Classic (1100m) on December 17th, Capitalist won the Gold Coast Magic Millions 2.y.o Guineas (1200m) in his only other start prior to the Todman Stakes on March 5th.

Capitalist has drifted noticeably to a quote of $10 following his Todman Stakes defeat in Golden Slipper betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.
