GOLDEN SLIPPER HISTORY

 

- The $3.5 million Golden Slipper is the world’s richest race over the flat for twoyear-olds.

 

- It is run at Rosehill Racecourse over the distance of 1200m.

 

-  It was first run in 1957 and attracts the best twoyear-olds in the country. It can be unpredictable because of the weather and under-exposed two-year-old form.

 

- It is a Group 1 race.

 

- Sydney twoyear-olds tend to dominate the scamper, but winners do come from outside States.

 

- Kiwi born jockey Shane Dye holds the record with Ron Quinton of four winners.

 

- The most successful trainers are the late and great Bart Cummings and Tommy Smith with six winners.

 

- The Golden Slipper was initiated by Sydney Turf Club committeeman George Ryder

 

- The Golden Slipper may be worth $3.5 million with $2 million going to the winner, but it is at stud where owners get their biggest pay-check. The race has become a sire-making event and ten’s of millions are paid for colts after they win to go to stud.

 

- Sunlight is the early Golden Slipper favourite at $4.50 with Written By firming into $9 following his electrifying win in the Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield (Feb 24). But there is a long way to go!

 

 

GOLDEN SLIPPER FORMAT          

 

- Restricted to a maximum of 16 starters. Winners of the Pago Pago Stakes, Todman Stakes, Magic Night Stakes and Reisling Stakes are all major lead ups into the Golden Slipper.

 

- Run over the Flat and entry is through nomination with the best field selected at final acceptances.

 

- The final field is released on Tuesday March 20, 2018.

 

GOLDEN SLIPPER TROPHY

 

- The Golden Slipper is a 24carat gold comfort shoe. The Golden Slipper is valued at $23,000 and includes Italian marble and a detachable golden bow brooch. It was first won by Todman in 1957.
