Global Glamour made her racing debut in the ITC Corporate Members Maiden (1000m) at Kembla Grange on January 30 and she stamped herself as a genuine Golden Slipper contender with a dominant six and a half lengths victory.

The Star Witness filly was set to have her next race start in the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick on February 27 and head towards the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 19, but bloodstock agent James Bester revealed that the juvenile had pulled up with shin soreness following her dominant debut win and would not be seen at the races again this preparation.

“It is a shame,” Bester said in a statement.

“She has been flying in her work and Gai really thought she’d be a chance in the Slipper.

“She pulled up a little shin sore after her thrilling debut win, we were hoping she’d come through that but, sadly, we’ve her to put her by for now.

“She’ll be back for the spring mind you – bigger and better – and with her undoubted talent she’ll be a force in any race she contends.

“She wasn’t an expensive filly and has already given her many owners a huge thrill, she’s a perfect example of the great excitement that racing can offer groups of owners for a modest outlay and I’d love to buy a stable-full like her.

“She won on debut like a star in the making and for a moment there we allowed ourselves to dream of Sweet Embraces and the ladies all bedecked in Golden Slippers.

“We’ll now have to wait until spring to see the best of her, but we’re confident she’ll bounce back with a bang.”

The withdrawal of Global Glamour leaves Waterhouse with Scarlet Rain as her leading Golden Slipper contender, as she looks to win Sydney’s most prestigious race for an unprecedented seventh time following her previous triumphs with Ha Ha (2001), Dance Hero (2004), Sebring (2008), Pierro (2012), Overreach (2013) and Vancouver (2014).

Capitalist ($3.80) is currently on top of the 2016 Golden Slipper betting market with Ladbrokes from Extreme Choice ($8), Astern ($11), Honesty Prevails ($13), Telperion ($15), Scarlet Rain ($17), Yankee Rose ($17), Defcon ($21), Tessera ($21) and Valliano ($21).
