Silver Slipper Stakes 2012 – Final Field & Barrier Draw

February 29th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes, which is due to take place at Rosehill Racecourse this Saturday March 3, 2012.

11 horses have accepted for a run in the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes, including A Bridge Too Far.

A Bridge Too Far is yet to have a race start and will be on debut if he runs in the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes this Saturday.

The two-year-old will most likely run at Wyong tomorrow in the Kleenheat 2YO Maiden Plate, but a wide barrier has lead trainer Kris Lees to rethink his plans.

“At the moment he’s running at Wyong but I’ll probably accept for the Silver Slipper as well to keep options open,” Lees said yesterday.

“Originally the plan was to run at Wyong but we’ll have to assess things now because he’s drawn 13 and there’s also a bit of uncertainty about the weather.

“We’ll probably accept tomorrow morning and then make a call tomorrow night.”

A Bridge Too Far has drawn barrier nine for the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes and would be ridden by jockey Tommy Berry.

Also included in the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes final field and barrier draw is Hussousa, who will be having her third career start in the race.

Hussousa has drawn barrier five and will be ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman.

The John Thompson-trained filly won while on debut in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes last October, before finishing a close third to Driefontein in the Listed Widden Stakes last start.

Hussousa has won more than $70,000 in prize money during her horse racing career and will be looking to have a solid run going into the $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes on April 7, 2012.

Pierro and Meidung are also included in the 2012 Silver Slipper Stakes final field and barrier draw.
