Golden Slipper Field 2022

The final field and barrier draw has been declared for Saturday’s Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Seven colts and nine fillies make up the field of 16 while four more colts occupy the emergency positions.

The country’s best juveniles will compete for $5 million in prizemoney in the world’s richest two-year-old race.

Race favourite and Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) winner Coolangatta has drawn barrier 14 and is the only runner for trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace.

The daughter of Written Tycoon is undefeated in three runs and will again be partnered by James McDonald who has been aboard for each of her wins.

Peter and Paul Snowden’s filly, Russian Conquest, was runner-up to Coolangatta in the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and has also drawn wide in barrier 16 for jockey Tommy Berry.

She most recently finished 4th in the Reisling Stakes (1200m) behind Seven Wells, Dashing Legend and Ojai on a Heavy 10 at Randwick.

Revolutionary Miss also lines up for the Snowden camp and has also drawn a wide gate in 17.

Silver Slipper (1100m) winner Best Of Bordeaux will be aiming to make it three from three as he jumps from gate 10.

It was less than two years ago that Best Of Bordeaux’s trainer Kacy Fogden trained her first winner, and now she heads into one of the biggest races on the calendar with an unbeaten Snitzel colt.

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott’s only runner, Rise Of The Masses, has drawn the outside gate (20) and will likely go forward having led all the way to win the Pago Pago (1200m) last Saturday.
