Saturday Arvo Racing heads to Rosehill for the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper, the world’s richest race for two year olds.
Houtzen is likely to jump favourite in the 1200m sprint despite the wide barrier draw, while Catchy, She Will Reign, Pariah and Frolic are all expected to be in contention at the winning post.
Superstar mare Winx also takes to the track on Saturday in the $1 million George Ryder Stakes as raging favourite, aiming for her 16th consecutive win.
Saturday Arvo Racing also comes from Flemington featuring the Blamey Stakes where Melbourne’s leading trainer Darren Weir has four of the seven runners including favourite Black Heart Bart.
The Golden Slipper will be hosted by Bruce McAvaney, with expert analysis from Francesca Cumani, and Simon Marshall. Jason Richardson has all the news from the mounting yard with James Jordan delivering form analysis, and Teigan Nash reports on all the colour and characters from around the track.
Champion trainer Peter Moody also joins the team for the next two weeks.
