Weatherly Out Of Slipper

Tuesday, 15th March 2016

Meanwhile, AAP reports that prodigiously talented colt Weatherly (Beneteau-Luna Bella, by Stravinsky) will miss Saturday's Gr1 Golden Slipper due to shin soreness. Trainer Paul Messara confirmed the highly promising youngster will now head to the spelling paddock ruling him out of the remainder of the autumn racing carnival. Weatherly established himself as one of the most talented juveniles in the country when scoring a brilliant win in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) at Flemington, before a below par performance saw him finish third to Kiss And Make Up in the Gr1 Todman Stakes on 5 March. Bred by Arrowfield Stud in conjunction with the Chilean-based Sumaya Stables, Weatherly is out of the unraced Stravinsky mare Luna Bella, a full-sister to Gr2 Reisling Stakes winner Hips Don't Lie - herself the dam of Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper placegetter Lake Geneva. Weatherly's record reads 1 win and 1 placing from 3 starts for $106,200 earnings.
