Winners, Past Results and History for the Golden Slipper Stakes.

The Golden Slipper Stakes contested by the best two-year-old Australian thoroughbred horses at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney is undoubtedly one of the richest events in its category.

The Group 1 race hosted by the Australian Turf Club is run over a distance of 1200 meters under set weight conditions. The Golden Slipper is held on the first Saturday in April during the autumn racing carnival. Punters have a great day to look forward to with four other Group 1 races which include the George Ryder Stakes, Queen of the Turf Stakes, Storm Queen Stakes and The BMW.

Prize money worth $3.5 million is at stake in the Golden Slipper Stakes with the classiest sprinters on the Australian turf coming under the starter's orders.

Horses, jockeys, trainers and owners have all contributed the Golden Slippers illustrious history with many making it to the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup. Leading up to the Golden Slipper are the Pago Pago Stakes and the Todman Stakes for colts and geldings, and the Reisling Stakes are lead up races which punters ought to use as a form guide. The Magic Night Stakes for fillies is another race that has the top two year old fillies warm up for the Golden Slipper Stakes.

In addition, winners of these races are exempt from ballot for the Golden Slipper. 2011 Golden Slipper winner, Sepoy, came into the race with a major victory in the Todman Stakes.

Golden Slipper Stakes winners usually move on to greater success during their career as sprinters or middle distance runners. The Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes held at Flemington on Derby Day and the Group 1 WS Cox Plate at the Moonee Valley track are among the major races that top performers in the Golden Slipper may head for during the season.

Runner up in 2009, Headway won the Coolmoore Stud Stakes while third placed Manhattan Rain ran a close second in the Cox Plate in the same year. Over the years, males seem to get the better of the females with 12 winners over the last two decades. The two horses to win the Sweet Embrace Stakes/Golden Slipper double are Ha Ha in 2001 and Crystal Lily in 2010.

The Golden Slipper was initiated by committeeman of the Sydney Turf Club, George Ryder with the first winner being Todman in 1957. Jockey Shane Dye steered four horses to the winning post between 1989 and 1992, equaling jockey R. Quinton's record between 1982 and 1987. Trainer Bart Cummings and late TJ Smith have each saddled six winners.
