Every 2YO horses dream, the Golden Slipper / Sires Produce Stakes double was up for grabs for Golden Slipper winner Fireburn. Due to her great Golden Slipper win in the rain, it was this filly that went in as the $2.40 favourite. It was her Golden Slipper win that really put her on the map, but prior to that race, she did win the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes.
On the next line of betting was Showcourt and She’s Extreme, both starting at $8.50. Showcourt had put in a good performance in his trial prior to this race, and before that he finished 4th in the Group 2 Todman Stakes. She’s Extreme was one of the many runners that contested the Golden Slipper prior to this race, but she finished down in 7th there.
The only other runner that was under double digit odds was Daumier, starting at $9.00. He previously contested the Golden Slipper, and finished an unlucky 4th. But before the Golden Slipper, he did win the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes.
With the 2023 Sires Produce Stakes field yet to be determined, let’s take a look back at the 2022 field, headlined by winner Fireburn:
|1. DAUMIER (56.5kg)||11||Mark Zahra||A & S Freedman|
|2. SHALATIN (56.5kg)||1||Nash Rawiller||Joseph Pride|
|3. LET’SROLLTHEDICE (56.5kg)||7||Damian Lane||Danny O’Brien|
|4. COUNTTHEHEADLIGHTS (56.5kg)||13||Jamie Kah||C Maher & D Eustace|

|12. FIREBURN (54.5kg)||6||Brenton Avdulla||Gary Portelli|
|13. SHE’S EXTREME (54.5kg)||12||Tommy Berry||Anthony Cummings|
Despite the Heavy 9 track, which can sometimes throw up surprisingly results, it was in fact the favourite that got the chocolate in the 2022 Sires Produce Stakes. Fireburn started as the $2.40 favourite, and was able to navigate through the field to get the win for trainer Gary Portelli.
In second place was She’s Extreme, finishing 1.43L behind Fireburn. She’s Extreme was in second place by the 800m mark, but that was all the filly could manage, after coming across from the widest barrier of all.
Wrapping up the minor placings was Let’srollthedice, who had tasty place odds of $3.40. Let’srollthedice was pretty much last at the 800m mark, but put on his stakes to get closer to the front of the pack. At the end of the day, it just wasn’t enough to run down Fireburn or She’s Extreme, and he finished 5.37L behind the leader.
For all those first four bettors out there, it was Daumier who finished in 4th place, after leading at both the 800m and 400m mark. The colt was unable to keep the lead and was swallowed up by Fireburn, She’s Extreme and Let’srollthedice, finishing 6.77L off the pace.
