Rosehill Garden’s Golden Slipper Day has arrived and there are only a minimal number of scratchings in the nine Group races being run as part of the day.
Racing begins in Race 1 with the Group 3 The Schweppervescence, in which both Peter Snowden’s Induna and Bart Cummings’ Bikini Star have been scratched.
The only high profile scratching is in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper, where the first and only emergency, Do You Think, has been forced to withdraw from the race.
Do You Think will now compete in the first race of the day, and is the overwhelming $2.10 favourite for The Schweppervescence.
The Starcraft colt will be ridden by jockey Hugh Bowman and will jump from barrier 11.
Below you will find the complete list of scratchings for Golden Slipper Day today April 2, 2011.
