Do You Think wins The Schweppervescence on Golden Slipper Day at Rosehill

The first race of the exciting Golden Slipper Day, the Group 3 The Schweppervescence, has been won in spectacular style by Bart Cummings’ Do You Think.

The Schweppervescence is the first of the nine Group race program at Rosehill Gardens today, which includes the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Do You Think won the 2011 The Schweppervescence by a length despite his awkward starting gate of 11.

The race began when Gunhilda missed the start and Gal Pal took to the early lead.

Gal Pal began to slow the tempo in the early stages of the race, while Do You Think sat in a prime position near the front of the field.

Gal Pal held the lead as she rounded the home turn until Do You Think burst through the middle of the pack at the 300 metres and was untouchable as he powered home to an easy win.

Cocky Raider put in a brilliant run to come from behind and steal second away from Gai Waterhouse’s Satirical Boy, who finished in third.

Do You Think won the $125,000 The Schweppervescence in a time of 1 minute and 24.51 seconds on Rosehill Garden’s dead 5 rated track.

Bart Cummings made it clear after the race that he felt Do You Think would have run a great race in the Golden Slipper had he not been the first emergency.

Do You Think will now be heading to the Group 1 AJC Sires Produce Stakes at Randwick Racecourse on April 9, 2011 and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Randwick on April 23, 2011.
