Winners and Past Results for the Silver Slipper Stakes.
The Silver Slipper Stakes is a Group 2 race for two year old horses held during the autumn racing carnival at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney.
The 1100 metre sprint race is run under set weight conditions with $250,000 offered to the winning connections by the Australian Turf Club.
The event is the first up among group races for two year olds in autumn with a number of juveniles aiming for the prestigious Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes in April at the same track. Although the event may not field all the top liners it does have a reputation of producing a few stars of the turf.
Other than the Golden Slipper, the 1200 M Group 2 Reisling Stakes is one other feature race that some of the horses might consider a fortnight later at Rosehill. The Group 2 Todman Stakes over an extended distance of 1200 metres at Rosehill around three weeks later may also attract a field of horses from the Silver Slipper. Top performers who prove their mettle to travel the mile may also find a place in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes later during the carnival.
Being a race for two year olds, horses could use a variety of listed races as a warm up to the Silver Slipper Stakes or may even come in from a spell.
Two year old fillies first came under the starter's orders in the Silver Slipper Stakes in 1963. It remained a principal race until 1978 after which it was granted Group 2 status by the ATC. Among the notable group of Silver Slipper Stakes winners are Baguette in 1969, Triscay in 1989, Excellerator in 2001, and Domesday in 2005.
