Review (continued)
Despite still being a maiden, Oohood
is the third highest rated two-yearold this season for her closing
second in the Golden Slipper.
The Tony McEvoy-trained filly
accumulated Group 1 placings in
the Blue Diamond Stakes, the
Golden Slipper and also the
Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at
Randwick on April 7 where she was
sent out as favourite.
It was the Sires’ Produce which
delivered the biggest boilover of the
carnival as the Ben Smith-trained El
Dorado Dreaming won at 80-1.
Oohood (I am Invincible x Bella Sunday)
Fresh off running second in a 1200m
Maiden Plate at Newcastle, nobody
expected the Ilovethiscity filly to
improve so sharply.
Running to 112+ in the Sires’, El
Dorado Dreaming came out a
fortnight later and proved it was no
fluke, finishing a somewhat unlucky
third in the Group 1 Champagne
Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on
April 21 behind the Mick Pricetrained Seabrook.
Estijaab 2018 Golden Slipper winner
Others two-year-olds to perform
particularly well through the
autumn carnival include Sunlight
(Silver Slipper), Performer
(Canonbury Stakes) and Aylmerton
(Todman Stakes).
Members of the fairer sex have now filled the Golden
Slipper trifecta in three of the past five renewals.
They achieved the feat in Mossfun’s 2014 Golden Slipper
while She Will Reign led in a fillies trifecta last year.
Estijaab running to 118 in the Golden Slipper means
Written By can still boast being the highest rated twoyear-old of the crop for his Blue Diamond victory at
Caulfield on February 24.
The homebred colt provided jockey Jordan Childs with
his first Group 1 victory and Grahame Begg his first top
level success since stepping away from training in 2015
before relocating to Victoria.
Written By then won the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes
(1200m) at Rosehill on March 17 before a respectable
fourth behind Estijaab contesting the Golden Slipper.
Sunlight (Zoustar x Solar Charged)
