Flying Artie Heads into 2016 Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes

Caulfield’s Mick Price has confirmed his Golden Slipper third placegetter from the weekend Flying Artie is on track to back-up in a rematch with the runner-up in the same feature, Yankee Rose, in the Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes 2016 next month.

Price enjoyed great success at home in late February’s $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) preparing the quinella with Extreme Choice defeating stablemate Flying Artie.

The duo backed up in Sydney’s $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens last Saturday jumping the top two in betting for the world’s richest race for two-year-olds.

Favourite Extreme Choice missed the kick and never made up ground, eventually finishing a well-beaten eighth over four lengths off the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained winner Capitalist.

Like Capitalist, who atoned for his only loss to date when runner-up in the Todman Stakes leading into the Slipper, Extreme Choice is now off to the paddock to freshen-up before a spring return targeting the Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on Derby Day.

“He was a neck slow and then got pressure from the outside in and the inside out, which had him on the wrong leg for the first half of the race,” Price told Racing Victoria.

“The whole race was just a disaster.”

“He pulled up OK but he’ll go straight to the paddock and be set for the Coolmore in the spring.”

Price’s talented Artie Schiller colt Flying Artie meanwhile boxed on well for third in the Golden Slipper trifecta, his second Group 1 placing in as many starts.

He looks on track to continue his Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival raid on April 2 targeting the $1 million Group 1 ATC Inglis Sires’ (1400m) at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’.

“Flying Artie came through the race well enough to suggest he could run in the Sires’,” Price said.

“But a final decision on that will be made in the next seven to 10 days.”

The set weights classic is also on the agenda for Golden Slipper runner-up Yankee Rose, David Vandyke’s All American filly doing extremely well in her first-up run since November last year.

From 1994 – 2005 the Golden Slipper Stakes produced all but one of the 12 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes winners.

Since then four Slipper graduates have backed-up to win the Sires’ Produce without another run, the latest of which was Guelph (4th) in 2013.

The last youngster to complete the Golden Slipper – ATC Sires’ Produce double meanwhile was Gai Waterhouse’ star colt Pierro (2012).

Price has saddled up just two previous ATC Sires’ Produce runners for a third place finish, but hopes to break through with his maiden win this autumn with Flying Artie.

Yankee Rose is leading futures Inglis Sires’ betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $4.60 to be the first filly to salute since Peggy Jean (2014) only two years ago, ahead of the John O’Shea-trained Street Cry colt Telperion ($5).

Telperion’s run in the Golden Slipper for a fast-closing fourth as a $31 roughie was perhaps the best in the race and has the Godolphin-raced improver on track for the step up to 1400m in the Sires’.

Flying Artie meanwhile occupies the third line of all-in Inglis Sires’ Produce odds at $6 just ahead of Capitalist for last year’s winning stable, the Snowden’s preparing Pride Of Dubai (2015) for the Blue Diamond Stakes – ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes double.

Capitalist is more likely to head for a spell, but is being kept safe in betting by the bookies.
