Golden Slipper Form Guide: Facts & Key Stats

Looking over recent Golden Slipper Stakes history uncovers a number of interesting Golden Slipper form guide trends and statistics to check out when doing the form on the current season’s edition of the $3.5 million Group 1 sprint.

Lead-Up Runs: From 2009 – 2016 all nine Golden Slipper winners either finished first or second in their lead-up run. No Golden Slipper Stakes winner has finished worse than fourth last start in over 30 years.

Best Form Races: The Group 2 Todman Stakes and the Group 2 Reisling Stakes have been the key form races to follow into the Golden Slipper results in the past decade. From 2009 – 2016 five of the nine winners came off the Todman Stakes – also known as the Todman Slipper Trial.

Favourites: In the past decade Golden Slipper Stakes favourites have a solid record with four saluting for the punters from 2006 – 2016. Sebring ($6 in 2008) was the first favourite to win since Courtz (1989). The only Golden Slipper winner since Forensics ($13 in 2007) to salute at double-figure odds was Phelan Ready ($26 in 2009).

Trainers: Gai Waterhouse is the most successful Golden Slipper Stakes trainer (since 1983) saddling-up six winners, four runners-up and six third placegetters (up until 2017). Looking for in-form Waterhouse-trained runners in the current year’s Golden Slipper field is always a good idea.

Barriers: The standout Golden Slipper barrier (since 1983) producing seven winners is barrier one so tipping a good two-year-old drawn the rails can make a smart bet. Note there’s been four winners from barriers 5, 10 and 11 in that time (up until 2017).
