Whirlwind Golden Slipper trip on Murphy’s agenda2 weeks ago
Star jockey Oisin Murphy is priming himself for a rapid dash to Australia next weekend.
The multiple Group 1-winning Irishman has been booked to ride Loving Gaby in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper at Rosehill on March 23.
Loving Gaby is currently 17th in order of entry, with a capacity field of 16 to run in the two-year-old feature.
Such is the prestige of the race, 23-year-old Murphy will endure a whirlwind sojourn if the filly gets in the final field, flying fly from the UK next Friday - the day prior to the race - before heading out of Sydney after completing his duties.
Murphy says his association with Phoenix Thoroughbreds led to him landing the ride on the Ciaron Maher/David Eustace-trained filly, who he is delighted to be partnering.
“I ride regularly for Phoenix (overseas),” Murphy told SEN.com.au.
“She’s got a nice profile and I’m very pleased to pick up the ride.”
As of yet, Murphy’s booking in the Slipper is his sole obligation for the huge day of racing which includes five G1 events.
“I haven’t been booked for any other rides. I’ll just be flying in on Friday and out after racing on Saturday,” he added.
“The Golden Slipper is a very famous race and I’m looking forward to giving it my best shot.”
Loving Gaby has had two starts to date, winning impressively on debut at Caulfield in G3 company in early February, before an unlucky sixth in the Blue Diamond Stakes on February 23.
She trialled nicely at Randwick on Thursday morning ahead of the Slipper in which she sits on the fith line of betting at $11 with BetEasy.
