Kacy Fogden will be looking to win her first Group 1 when she saddles up the unbeaten colt Best Of Bordeaux in the Golden Slipper Stakes at Rosehill.
A winner of the Group 3 Canonbury Stakes on debut at the end of January, the son of Snitzel then went on to win the Group 2 Silver Slipper on his next start and he is currently a 9/1 chance for the Group 1 feature this weekend.
The trainer had been part of Aquis Farm since its inception in 2015, before deciding to take out her own licence in 2019 and opening up to outside ownership in December 2020.
A Kiwi expat, Fogden is pleased with her colt ahead of the $5million race for two-year-olds after he also scored in a barrier trial at Warwick Farm last week.
"He's super," Fogden told Racing.com. "He came through that trial really well last week. His work on Tuesday was nice. He's very bright and very well in himself, I'm very happy."
Best Of Bordeaux has virtually made all in his two wins to date, but Fogden is adamant that he is far more versatile than that.
She added: "I think everybody was quick to brand him after that Canonbury win where he went straight to the front, and he got marked as a simple, front-running horse with a lot of speed.
"That's definitely not the case with him, a lot of his gallops and his work, he goes in behind horses and settles well."
