PUNTERS STILL LIKE SATIN SHOES

Mar 23, 2011

Corporate bookie Centrebet has found a punter that believes Satin Shoes can still win the Golden Slipper despite her first career defeat last Saturday in the Group II Reisling Stakes.

Centrebet spokesman Neil Evans said Satin Shoes “has been the best-backed runner” in the past 24 hours and one bet of $10,000 each-way was written at $9.

“The punters haven’t given up on her, but we’re prepared to lay her big time,” Evans said.

“She’s almost as big a liability for us now as Sepoy.”
