Golden Slipper Hopes Top 2017 Pago Pago Stakes Field & Odds

A line-up of potential Golden Slipper Stakes runners Saturday week face off in the Pago Pago Stakes 2017 field this weekend at Rosehill Gardens including the undefeated Ducimus.

Prepared by Hawkes Racing, Snitzel colt Ducimus has won both of his career starts in Victoria and heads to Sydney on Saturday heading the line-up in the $175,000 Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m).

The Coolmore Classic Day support act is scheduled to run as Rosehill Race 3 at 1:45pm (AEDT) and has attracted a final field of twelve two-year-old colts and geldings.

The race is the final one offering a ballot exemption to the winner for next weekend’s $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) back at Rosehill.

Currently sitting as a $41 roughie in Golden Slipper Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, Ducimus needs to win on Saturday to make the field for the world’s richest two-years-old race.

He pays $3.50 in Pago Pago Stakes betting and is favourite to continue his flawless record from barrier five with Blake Shinn aboard the last start Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) winner at Flemington.

Hot on his heels as the second favourite in the Pago Pago Stakes odds at $3.80 and firming is early market mover Condor Heroes.

Gerald Ryan saddles-up the Not A Single Doubt colt from barrier nine with Tim Clark booked for the first-up ride.

Clark was aboard for the youngster’s debut at Randwick last October when Condor Heroes beat home Khan in the Listed Breeders Plate (1000m).

He has won a subsequent Rosehill trial over 900m by nearly five lengths and looks fit and ready to fire in his autumn return on the weekend.

As with most juvenile races, the Pago Pago Stakes is an open affair this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and a further four runners are under double figures for the win.

Three runners sit at an equal $6.50 quote with Single Bullet, Coruscate and Albumin.

Gary Portelli prepares consistent Not A Single Doubt colt Single Bullet who has run top three in his three starts so far including a first-up third when only a length beaten in the wet by the winner Diamond Tathagata in the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m).

Single Bullet races at Rosehill Gardens for the first time second-up and will be fitter for the Skyline Stakes run looking to break his maiden status.

Coruscate is a Godolphin-raced galloper trained by John O’Shea who also comes off a Skyline Stakes run having finished a close second in the February 25 lead-up.

English jockey William Buick comes aboard this weekend with Coruscate looking to return to the winning form that saw him take out his debut at Canterbury in early February.

Second in that Canterbury race over 1100m was Foxwedge gelding Albumin, the Ryan-trained grey having subsequently saluted over the distance at Rosehill on February 22 ahead of the Pago Pago Stakes test.

The rails-drawn Schubert ($9) for Godolphin who ran second in the Albumin-won lead-up rounds out the single-figure fancies in the Group 2.
