2016 Golden Slipper Still the Target for Capitalist

Capitalist suffered his first loss in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Saturday but co-trainer Paul Snowden has revealed the colt has suffered no ill-effects from the run and remains on target for the 2016 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 19th.

The 2016 Golden Slipper remains the target for Capitalist despite a shock defeat in ...

The 2016 Todman Stakes, also known as the Todman Slipper Trial, is an exciting Group 2 race held as part of the coveted Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival. Taking place on Coolmore Stud Classic Day in March at the esteemed Rosehill Racecourse, the Todman Slipper Trial is one of eight group races at the meeting.

The feature event of the day is the Group 1 Coolmore Classic, followed by the Group 1 Ranvet Stakes. Then four Group 2 events steal the show, the Reisling Slipper (the equivalent race for fillies) Trial, Ajax Stakes, Phar Lap Stakes and, of course, the Todman Slipper Trial.

Worth $300,000 in prize money, the Todman Stakes is run over the sprint distance of 1200m and is for two-year-old colts and geldings at set weights. It is one of the better events for two-year-olds at the Sydney Autumn Carnival. The premier two-year-olds race is the prestigious Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill, with many runners using the Todman Stakes as a preparatory race to the Golden Slipper in two weeks time. The winner of the Todman Slipper Trial is exempt from ballot for the Golden Slipper Stakes.

Todman Slipper Trial History

The Todman Slipper Trial was inaugurated in 1973 with Imagele claiming victory in the first race. It began as a principal race run over 1200m, and although the distance has remained the same, the status of the event has increased. It was elevated to a Group 3 status in 1980 before finally being installed as a Group 2 race in 1986.

After 2005 the Todman Slipper Trial was called the Todman Stakes.
