Silver Slipper Stakes 2012 – Rosehill Race Preview

February 15th, 2012

The Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes is due to run at Rosehill Racecourse on Saturday March 3, 2012.

The race is run over a distance of 1,100 metres and under set weight conditions.

The 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes is worth $200,000 in prize money and is open to two-year-old horses only.

The race is used as a lead-up race to the $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes, which will take place at Rosehill racecourse on April 7, 2012.

Gai Waterhouse is looking to send her two-year-old colt Pierro to the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes.

”He is coming along well, and the Silver Slipper is the right place for him to return,” she said.

”We have quite an exciting team.”

Pierro won his only previous race start in the Listed Throroughbred Breeders Plate on October last year and has since won a barrier trial at Rosehill on February 7.

The Lonhro colt was purchased for $230,000 from the 2011 Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale and has so far earned more than $60,000 in prize money.

The 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes is due to run on the same day as the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes, Group 3 Millie Fox Quality, Listed Fireball Quality Handicap and Listed Parramatta Cup.
