Miss Sikri

Trainer :        Les Bridge                 Jockey :     Ron Quinton

Apprentice Maurice Logue had ridden Sir Dapper in his five wins prior to the Todman Slipper Trial when he was boxed in by jockey Ron Quinton.  When he finally "got out" he lost by half a length to Daybreak Lover.  For the Golden Slipper, connections decided to replace Logue with Ron Quinton.  Despite drawing barrier 11, Quinton was able to take up a position just off the pace and take a crack at the leaders in the straight.  Sir Dapper won in 1:09.9 and became the first horse to break 1:10.0 in the Golden Slipper.  A son of Vain, Sir Dapper had 18 starts for 13 wins and 4 seconds including the AJC Spring Champion Stakes, AJC Hobartville Stakes and the STC Gloaming Stakes.   He entered stud in 1984 and has proved to be a workmanlike sire.
