Waller Still Has Home Affairs, Other Contestants for Golden Slipper
SYDNEY, New South Wales — Chris Waller confirmed that he has other racehorses that will compete for the upcoming Golden Slipper 2021. His latest statement comes as it has been confirmed that She’s All Class will not be participating in the March 20 horse race. Based on the update posted online by Australian horse betting information and news portal Racenet, Waller can still have a robust presence in the Golden Slipper 2021.
Even if She’s All Class will be out of the forthcoming competition’s mix, Sydney’s leading trainer affirmed that he has the likes of Home Affairs and Head Of State still in contention. Additionally, Waller said that he has Shaquero and O’President also participating in the world’s richest juvenile horse race.
Home Affairs is a Chris Waller-trained, bay-coloured colt. At the time of writing, Miss Interiors and I Am Invincible’s two-year-old son has raked in prize money worth $199,100 per Racenet. In last month’s Silver Slipper Stakes 2021, Home Affairs bagged the top prize, based on the details posted on breeding industry-focused website Breednet. He impressed horse racing spectators and fans as he was victorious in the Group Two, 1,100-metre Rosehill event last February 20.
Moreover, Home Affairs placed third in the Group Two, $300,000-Todman Stakes 2021. This 1,200-metre sporting event took place yesterday, March 6, at the Royal Randwick Racecourse, and the winner was the James Cummings-trained colt, Anamoe. Home Affairs is currently carrying on with his preparation toward the Golden Slipper 2021 tilt happening in two weeks.
Meanwhile, She’s All Class is the talented, 2-year-old filly under Waller’s supervision. She is the latest, high-profile racehorse to get ruled out of the Golden Slipper 2021 tilt. On Friday, Waller informed Racing NSW stewards that his bay-coloured galloper would not compete again this autumn.
The racehorse trainer had also reportedly felt anxious about keeping She’s All Class in training throughout the season. Shirra Nui and I Am Invincible’s offspring, whose prize money to date amounts to $340,300 per Racenet, has had an extensive campaign, which consists of her third in the Magic Millions.
In the Sweet Embrace Stakes, She’s All Class produced an exemplary effort last Saturday to almost run down Four Moves Ahead. Nonetheless, the Chris Waller-trained, Gold Coast resident’s defeat left her way down the order of entry of the Golden Slipper 2021 competition. The upcoming 1,200-metre Rosehill horse racing contest will award $3.5 million in cash prize to the winning team.
