Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper team has been reduced by one with injury ruling Global Glamour out of the rest of the autumn.
Bloodstock agent James Bester, representing the All About The Girls Syndicate, said the filly had pulled up a little shin sore from her debut win at Kembla Grange on January 30.
“We were hoping she’d come through that but, sadly, we’ve had to put her by for now,” Bester said in a statement on Friday.
“We’ll now have to wait until spring to see the best of her. But we’re confident she’ll bounce back with a bang.”
Global Glamour had been a $15 chance in Slipper markets with Waterhouse drawing comparisons to last year’s runner-up English, winner of the corresponding Kembla Grange maiden on debut.
English has not raced since her midfield finish in the Sires’ Produce Stakes in April but showed she was primed for her return by beating reigning Slipper favourite Capitalist in a barrier trial at Randwick on Friday.
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained Capitalist led the trial with English edging him out on the line.
The unbeaten colt will have his first start since his Magic Millions win when he runs in the Todman Stakes on March 5.
Capitalist is the TAB’s $3.50 Slipper favourite ahead of Extreme Choice at $8 and Astern at $11 with a group on $15 including the Waterhouse-trained Scarlet Rain.
Astern can further cement his claims with victory in Saturday’s Silver Slipper at Rosehill for which he is the odds-on favourite.
