One of the key Golden Slipper chances from the Peter and Paul Snowden yard has been ruled out for the remainder of the Autumn Carnival.
Stratosphere made an eye-catching debut when narrowly defeated by the Golden Slipper second favourite Performer at Rosehill earlier this month.
The two-year-old was sitting at $15 in Golden Slipper betting before a statement released by Racing NSW advised the promising colt had been sent for a spell.
“Co-trainer Paul Snowden has advised Racing NSW that STRATOSPHERE, which is an acceptor in the $3.5m Longines Golden Slipper, has been spelled and will not compete during the Sydney Autumn Carnival.” The statement read.
The $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) takes place on March 24 at Rosehill.
