Godolphin Poised For Unique Juvenile Treble
The 2019 Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes has put Godolphin Australia within striking distance of achieving a truly unique feat. At this point in time, notwithstanding the emergence of new, valuable, juvenile features in Australia and New Zealand whose stars are still rising, the current big three 2YO scalps that most connections have desired to date are the Magic Millions 2YO Classic, Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes and Gr1 Golden Slipper Stakes. With Exhilarates having won the big Gold Coast shoot-out, should Tassort (and there are other Godolphin runners with claims including, potentially, Lyre) win the Gr1 Golden Slipper for which he remains favourite, Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin would possibly become the first ever owner to claim the big three 1200m juvenile events with three different horses.
