Godolphin targets Golden Slipper with Brazen colt

  • Tassort a clear favourite for the 2019 Golden Slipper
  • His win rated better than She Will Reign and Capitalist 
Tassort bolts in the Golden Gift at Rosehill.

Godolphin looks to have a key Golden Slipper prospect, with two-year-old colt Tassort. The son of Brazen Beau demolished a four-horse field in the Golden Gift (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday, winning by 5.3 lengths. 

Ridden by Sydney’s leading rider James McDonald, Tassort started a $4.00 second-favourite. He was always travelling well and was just needing luck at the top of the straight. McDonald pushed his way into the clear at the 250m mark and the colt exploded away, running the 400m-200m in 10.96s and his last furlong in 11.38s.  

With figures released by The Ratings Bureau’s Daniel O'Sullivan, Tassort has clearly ranked as the best-performed two-year-old, with a rating of 103, which is only 0.5 lengths off an average Golden Slipper victory. 

Tassort’s debut victory also rates better than the debut wins of 2017 Golden Slipper winner She Will Reign and 2016 Golden Slipper winner Capitalist. 



"He will be the benchmark for the stable's other young performers," Cummings said on the Godolphin website.  
"He's an exciting one to be put away now and prepared for next year. 
"He has been such a relaxed customer up until the point when some pressure started being put on a month ago.”

Tassort will return in the Autumn to contest the $3.5 million Golden Slipper on Saturday, March 23. The colt is a dominant $6.00 favourite for the race with Sportsbet.
