Slumber Party wideawake at 2YO Trials

The way Snitzel’s powerfully built daughter Slumber Party won her trial on Monday delighted her trainer, who saddled up two winners and a pair of placegetters at the Randwick 2YO Trials.

Gai Waterhouse commented on her website, “She has participated in every gallop, she has done all the work, and she has not missed a beat.

“This morning she was very much awake. She sprung the gates, sat outside the lead, cornered well, and then the daughter of leading stallion Snitzel powered away to win impressively. I like this filly a lot and I was confident she would run well this morning.”

Watch Slumber Party’s trial win.

Slumber Party was a $620,000 purchase by Waterhouse and American owner Jon Kelly from the Arrowfield draft at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Sale, and she is raced by Kelly in partnership with Paul Frampton.

Her dam is the juvenile winner Hokuspokus (by Red Ransom), a half-sister to a pair of stakes-winning 2YO fillies, Come Hither and Fun In Flight, from the notably precocious Easy Date family of Forensics, Snippets, Not A Single Doubt & Zizou.

Hokuspokus has a yearling colt by Animal Kingdom and foaled a colt by Dundeel just over three weeks ago.

Other Randwick 2YO trialists from the Waterhouse stable included the Arrowfield Inglis Easter graduate Piping Hot (More Than Ready-Ribe), who ran on well for fourth in the trial won by Desirable Miss, and Overreactive (Redoute’s Choice-Reactive), runner-up to Calliope in the fastest fillies’ trial of the morning.

Sixteen of Snitzel’s 32 stakeswinners have been successful in that company at two and he has been a top 5 Australian sire in that category for the past four years. This season he has more juvenile firepower than ever before, with 185 live foals in his 2013 crop.
