Satin Shoes Wins Silver Slipper Stakes

Monday, 28th February 2011

Arrowfield Stud stallion & former Australian Champion Sire Flying Spur (Danehill-Rolls, by Mr Prospector) added a juvenile black-type success when unbeaten daughter Satin Shoes (Flying Spur-Star Satire, by Volksraad) notched her 3rd successive win with a half-length victory against the males in the $200,000 Gr2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) for 2YOs at Rosehill. Satin Shoes (ridden by Hugh Bowman for trainer Clarry Conners) defeated fellow filly Elite Falls (More Than Ready-Niagara Falls, by Danehill) & previously unbeaten favoured colt Straight Gold (Stratum-Golden Delicious, by Made Of Gold). Satin Shoes (a $700,000 yearling consigned by Cressfield at the 2010 Inglis Easter Sale in Sydney) now has 3 wins (also including last start's Listed Widden Stakes over 1100m at Randwick on February 12) from 3 starts for $254,650 earnings.
