This triumph in the world’s richest two-year-old race came despite the pre-race hype surrounding the stable’s colt, Storm Boy.

Storm Boy, the undefeated winner of the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and Skyline Stakes, was slow of the gates and was forced to work hard throughout the race.

Despite a late surge, he finished third.

Lady Of Camelot, on the other hand, enjoyed a well-judged ride by Blake Shinn.

The Written Tycoon filly settled comfortably fourth in the run before launching a powerful finish down the outside.

In a thrilling conclusion, she edged out the fast-finishing Victorian colt Coleman to claim victory.

This win marks Lady Of Camelot as the latest filly to conquer the Golden Slipper, joining Fireburn (2022) in defying the colts.

“It’s fantastic,” declared co-trainer Adrian Bott after the win. He acknowledged the race’s significance and praised his long-standing partnership with Gai Waterhouse.

Lady Of Camelot’s next target could be the $1 million Inglis Sires’ (1400m) on April 6th, with her odds shortening to $5 at Ladbrokes.

Storm Boy, although a favourite pre-race, remains on track for the Triple Crown.

Trainer comments suggest he will target the Inglis Sires’ and the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) next, aiming to improve over the longer distances.
