Satin Shoes to Bypass Blue Diamond in Favour of 2011 Golden Slipper

Satin Shoes will target the 2011 Golden Slipper

Clarry Conners’ classy young filly Satin Shoes has been withdrawn from the 2011 Blue Diamond Stakes instead being saved to target the richest race for two-year-olds in the world, the $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on April 2.

Satin Shoes, a daughter of 1995 Golden Slipper winner Flying Spur, was one of the top-rated Blue Diamond Stakes contenders having moved into fourth spot in the order of entry following her eye-catching win the $100,000 Listed Widden Stakes (1100m) at Randwick on February 12.

After maintaining her unbeaten record in the Widden, Satin Shoes burst into Blue Diamond contention and firmed into the $14 equal fourth-favourite in the Blue Diamond Stakes odds at Luxbet.

Four-time Golden Slipper winning trainer Conners this morning made the announcement that Satin Shoes will bypass the Blue Diamond on February 26 in favour of keeping her in Sydney to continue to prepare for a run in the 2011 Golden Slipper Stakes.

Luxbet have Satin Shoes as the $11 third favourite in their Golden Slipper betting markets behind Sepoy ($6), who is also the odds-on favourite to win the Blue Diamond, and Karuta Queen ($9).

“She won’t go to the Blue Diamond, she will stay here and run in the Silver Slipper and then we’ll go from there,” Conners reported to Sky Sports Radio today.

The Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) is set to run at Rosehill on February 26, the same day as the Blue Diamond meet at Caulfield.
