The Silver Slipper Stakes is a lucrative Group 2 race run in mid-late February during the prestigious Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, the Silver Slipper Stakes is one of three Group races at the meeting along with the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) and the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m).

A 1100m sprint race for two-year-olds at set weights, the Silver Slipper Stakes offers $250,000 in prize money and is the first notable Group status race solely for two-year-olds at the carnival.

Runners from the Silver Slipper Stakes are traditionally eyeing a run in the richest race in the world for their age group – the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) back at Rosehill in March. She Will Reign (2017) was the last two-year-old to complete the Silver Slipper – Golden Slipper Stakes double.

Before the Golden Slipper Stakes the horses out of the Silver Slipper Stakes field may run in a lead-up race like Canberra’s Group 3 Black Opal Stakes (1200m), or either the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) for fillies or Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) for colts & geldings the week before.

The Silver Slipper Stakes 2019 runs on Saturday February 23, 2019 .

Silver Slipper Stakes History

Eskimo Prince was the inaugural Silver Slipper Stakes winner when the race was first held in 1963. It began as a Principal race run over four furlongs, and was run over five furlongs for one year in 1970. With Australia’s adoption of the metric system in 1973, the race distance was converted to 900m.

In 1979 the Silver Slipper reached its current Group 2 status and then the race distance was increased to 1100m in 1984. Due to an outbreak of the equine influenza in Australia, the race was not held in 1997.

A host of gun two-year-olds have dominated the Silver Slipper Stakes results over the years including recent Golden Slipper champions Pierro (2012), Mossfun (2014) and She Will Reign (2017).

See below for a full list of Silver Slipper Stakes results going back to 2000.
