The Golden Slipper Stakes is the richest and most prestigious 2YO race in the world and the running of the 2012 event is this Saturday.
The Golden Slipper field and barriers will be released tomorrow at mid day tomorrow, we take a look at some of the horses that are nominated and are likely and unlikely to race.
Everyone is talking about All Too Hard and whether he will run or not, the Hawkes team mentioned yesterday that if he was to win the Golden Slipper or the Sires there will be no change to his stud value meaning it is likely they will race in the latter which should be a more suitable and easier race to win.
We give our thoughts on which of the major contenders will be doing in regards to the Golden Slipper.
- Samaready will run.
- Pierro is likely to run.
- All Too Hard is unlikely to run. Likely to run in the Sires.
- Ichihara wont run.
- Epaulette will run.
- No Looking Back will run.
- Driefontein will run.
- Hussousa wont run.
- Raceway will run.
- Jimando unlikely to run.
- Cavalry Rose is likely to run.
