The powerful Godolphin stable unleashed two exciting juveniles by Street Boss (USA) on Saturday in less than an hour with Anamoe winning the Listed MRC Merson Cooper Stakes at Sandown and then promising filly Sliders winning the $127,000 Max Lees Classic (900m) at Newcastle.
A homebred for Godolphin trained by James Cummings, Sliders showed good ability in a recent trial and was tenacious to the line in this assignment for Rachel King, forging clear of Capitalist filly Snowdrop to win by half a length.
“I’ve had a bit to do with her during the early parts of her career and she has just been a natural,” Rachel King said.
“I think she is very untapped still. She did that very comfortably today.
“She doesn’t quite know how to really put them away yet but coming off the back of one trial, I thought it was really impressive.”
Sliders is bred to be well above average as a half-sister to Group I MRC Thousand Guineas winner Flit and Group III placed Flow being the fourth winner from stakes-placed Redoute’s Choice mare Glissade, a daughter of Group III winner Steflara.
She is bred on the same cross as Anamoe, as he is also by Street Boss from a daughter of Redoute’s Choice.
Glissade has a yearling filly by Frosted (USA) and has foaled this spring producing a filly by Astern.
A Group I winning son of Street Cry, Street Boss stands at Darley Victoria at a fee of $27,500.
