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 $5 million Group 1 sprint.
Lead-Up Runs: From 2009 – 2023 all but one of the 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. Shinzo (2023) on the quick back-up off a Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes win the Saturday prior is the latest last start Golden Slipper Stakes champion.
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 – 2023 seven of the 16 winners came off the Todman Stakes – also known as the Todman Slipper Trial. The filly She Will Reign improved on a Reisling Stakes second for her 2017 Golden Slipper victory and in 2018 the Reisling Stakes – Golden Slipper double was completed by Estijaab.
Favourites: In the past decade Golden Slipper Stakes favourites have a solid record with five saluting for the punters from 2006 – 2023. Sebring ($6 in 2008) was the first favourite to win since Courtz (1989). The only Golden Slipper winners since Forensics ($13 in 2007) to salute at double-figure odds are Phelan Ready ($26 in 2009), Kiamichi ($26 in 2019) a decade later and Fireburn ($12 in 2022). There was a notable upset in the 2023 Golden Slipper with Shinzo winning at $16.
Trainers: Gai Waterhouse is the most successful Golden Slipper Stakes trainer saddling-up seven winners, four runners-up and six third place-getters (up until 2023 inclusive). 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 nine winners is barrier one – most recently Fireburn (1 of 16 in 2022) and Shinzo (1 of 15 in 2023) – 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). Barrier 14 produced back-to-back Golden Slipper winners with Estijaab (2018) and Kiamichi (2019).
