Golden Slipper contender Bring Me The Maid will be out to break a 57 year hoodoo in Saturday’s Rosehill Group 1.
Since the Slipper’s inception no horse with four names has won the race. While history is against the juvenile, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has the filly on the third line of betting at $13, already in from $15.
Earthquake remains favourite for the Slipper, firming into $1.90 from $2.00 this week. However, on barrier draw eve, support has come for Unencumbered ($13), which is narrowly the best backed runner.
Mossfun holds the second line at $6.50, while Ghibellines shares the $13 quote with Unencumbered.
“One name four names, who cares? It won’t stop Bring Me The Maid from running a big race. Her win last Saturday was full of merit and if the track is heavy again her price could tumble even more,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.
Sportsbet.com.au will refund punters their bet on the Golden Slipper if Earthquake wins and their horse finishes within three lengths.
