03/06/02 Successful Return for Ruby Slipper
0520rlaing.jpg (10188 bytes)Ruby Slipper has made a successful return from surgery and continued the great form of Sutton Grange trainer Robbie Laing when that filly scored an impressive win at Caulfield yesterday.

A daughter of Victoria's evergreen siring sensation Rubiton, Ruby Slipper was having her first start since an operation on both legs.

"She had three chips removed from both fetlocks after she ran second at Moonee Valley," Laing said after the filly cruised home an easy winner.

Laing knew his three-year-old was on track for a positive return to the track after showing plenty in recent track work.

"Her work at home had been sensational," Laing said. "She was very impressive easily winning a trial as well."

Despite drifting in the market on course Ruby Slipper, with top senior hoop Noel Callow in the saddle, hit the front at the top of the home straight and then always looked the winner.

The grey Violet Tints tried hard to bridge the gap, but that filly could make no real impression. Zakynthos Star ran third.

Laing is predicting Ruby Slipper will pick up more races in the near future.

"She's always shown us above average ability and she's sure to pick up more races in the future," he added.
