The two-year-old won the race by a head in front of Whiskey Allround, who finished second, and Charlie Boy, who rounded out the placings in third.

Trainer Gai Waterhouse couldn’t hide her excitement following Sweet Idea’s 2013 Silver Slipper Stakes win.

“She was impossible to beat today and she will be very hard to beat on Golden Slipper day,” Waterhouse said.

“The fillies have it all over the colts this year.”

Sweet Idea was ridden by jockey Jim Cassidy in the 2013 Silver Slipper Stakes.

“She was going nowhere at the 600 (metres),” Cassidy said.

“Then she picked up and started coming. She’ll improve a lot and this race will toughen her up.”

Sweet Idea will now go on towards the $3.5 million Golden Slipper, which will be run at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday April 6, 2013.

The filly’s Silver Slipper Stakes win has granted her automatic entry into the 2013 Golden Slipper next month.
