The Golden Slipper Stakes is one of the premier races of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and is also the richest two year old race in the world. Held in late March at Rosehill Gardens, the 1200m sprint event is currently worth a lucrative $4.92 million in prize money and is the feature event on Golden Slipper Day.

A total of five elite level autumn races take place at the meeting with the Golden Slipper joined by the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m), Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m), the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m), and the Group 1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) for three-year-olds.

A number of traditional lead-ups to the Golden Slipper field offer a ballot exemption to the winning two-year-olds including the Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) held in late February, the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) run at Randwick on Guineas Day, and the Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) and Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) run the week before.

Shinzo (2023) became the first horse since Stratum (2005) to complete the Pago Pago Stakes – Golden Slipper double on the short seven-day turnaround.

Their positioning two weeks before the Golden Slipper Stakes makes the Todman Stakes and Reisling Stakes the best guides to the Group 1 in recent years.

Following the Golden Slipper betting the best two-year-olds may back-up at Royal Randwick during ‘The Championships’ in April and contest the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m). In 2016 Yankee Rose ran second in the Golden Slipper before winning the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes. Three years later, Microphone also improved on a Golden Slipper second ahead of his Sires’ Produce victory in 2019.

Fireburn (2022) was the last two-year-old to complete the Golden Slipper – Inglis Sires’ double. She further franked the form also finishing runner-up in that autumn’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m). The 2022 Golden Slipper third placed filly, Coolangatta, meanwhile went on to win the Group 1 AJ Moir Stakes (1000m) at The Valley later that spring.

The Golden Slipper is also part of the “Golden Slam” for horses that continues with the Golden Rose for three-year-olds and The Golden Eagle for four-year-olds.

Note: The 2021 Golden Slipper Stakes was postponed until Saturday March 27th, 2021 due to heavy rainfall and unsafe track conditions at Rosehill Gardens.

The 2023 Golden Slipper Stakes form was franked with the winner Shinzo returning in the spring for a third in that year’s Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington. The Slipper runner-up, Cylinder, meanwhile was third in that year’s Golden Rose trifecta in September.

In 2024 the Golden Slipper results saw Lady Of Camelot become the latest filly to win improving on her lead-up Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes second in Melbourne to hand co-trainer Gai Waterhouse a record extending eighth Golden Slipper trophy.

The 2024 Golden Slipper ran on Saturday March 23, 2024 and saw Blue Diamond second placed filly Lady Of Camelot ($6.50) fly home down the outside to beat home the boys in a huge performance.

  • To Win: #7 Switzerland ($4.40 at time of publish) – BET NOW

Trainer Chris Waller seeks consecutive Golden Slipper victories, this time with Switzerland, who remains undefeated in his three career starts. Facing the race favorite Storm Boy, Switzerland represents a strong chance for the colts in this year’s edition. Jockey James McDonald takes the reins from a versatile barrier draw (7). The Snitzel colt has shown progressive improvement with each run, culminating in a dominant victory in the Group 2 Todman Stakes (1200m) over the same distance as the Golden Slipper. Switzerland appears to be peaking in fitness at the right time and is a legitimate contender for the world’s richest two-year-old race.

Golden Slipper History

Originally worth 20,000 pounds in prize money, the Golden Slipper Stakes was first run in 1957 and was won by Todman.

Jockey Shane Dye and Ron Quinton have been the most successful jockeys in Golden Slipper history. Quinton won the race with Marscay (1982), Sir Dapper (1983), Rory’s Jester (1985) and Marauding (1987), while Dye won the race on four consecutive occasions; piloting Courtza (1989), Canny Lad (1990), Tierce (1991), and Burst (1992) to victory.

Renowned trainer Tommy J. Smith won the race with six horses; taking out the Group 1 event with Fairy Walk (1971), John’s Hope (1972), Hartshill (1974), Toy Show (1975), Bounding Away (1986) and Star Watch (1988). The fastest winning time was recorded in 2004 when Dance Hero won in 1 minute and 8.6 seconds, while Canny Lad recorded the slowest winning race time in 1990 with a time 1 minute and 15.41 seconds.

The Golden Slipper began as a Principle race from 1957 – 1978 before gaining its current Group 1 status in 1979. It was held over six furlongs until 1972 and then officially 1200m with the metric conversion coming in from 1973 onwards.

From 2009 – 2014 the Golden Slipper Stakes ran on the first Saturday of April. Prior to 2008 it ran on the Saturday before Good Friday. It now runs in March leading up to the two-day ‘The Championships’ on the first two Saturdays of April.

Notable recent Golden Slipper winners include Dance Hero (2004), Stratum (2005), Miss Finland (2006) Sebring (2008) Sepoy (2011), Pierro (2012), and Capitalist (2016).

In both 2017 and 2018 the Golden Slipper trifecta was an all-filly affair.

In 2020 co-trainer Gai Waterhouse celebrated her record seventh success and first in partnership with Adrian Bott when the favourite Farnan saluted in front of a spectator free grandstand due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

She won again posting her eighth Golden Slipper victory in 2024 with Lady Of Camelot.

In 2021 the original Golden Slipper Stakes race day was abandoned due to heavy rainfall and unsafe track conditions and postponed to the following Saturday.

The 2022 Golden Slipper winner Shinzo handed Sydney’s premier horseman Chris Waller with his maiden win in the world’s richest race for two-year-olds off a gun ride by international visitor Ryan Moore.

Golden Slipper prizemoney for the 2024 edition was reduced slightly from $5 million to $4.92 million.
