Golden Slipper Form Guide

2021 Golden Slipper Results

  • 1st: #8 Stay Inside
  • 2nd: #5 Anamoe
  • 3rd: #4 Ingratiating

The Richard & Michael Freedman-trained Stay Inside ($4.60) was ridden to perfection by now three-time champion hoop Tommy Berry winning the Golden Slipper 2021 by nearly two lengths ahead of the Godolphin-raced Anamoe ($15), with the fellow James Cummings-trained Ingratiating ($20) a further two lengths back third.


The Golden Slipper form guide is a comprehensive listing of the must-know statistics on the two-year-olds lining-up in the Golden Slipper Stakes field to help with betting on the world’s richest race for juveniles.

Each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in March the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) takes place at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, and the Golden Slipper Stakes form guide reveals what runners have previous form at the track and distance, their Golden Slipper barriers, lead-up form, trainers and jockeys.

Using the Golden Slipper form guide to find out everything you can about each two-year-old in the classic is the best way to successfully predict that autumn’s Golden Slipper Stakes results.

The official 2021 Golden Slipper Form Guide will be released as soon as the final field is out on the Tuesday of race week and will be published in full below.

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 – 2021 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.

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 – 2021 seven of the 14 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 – 2021. 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) and Kiamichi ($26 in 2019) a decade later.

Trainers: Gai Waterhouse is the most successful Golden Slipper Stakes trainer saddling-up seven winners, four runners-up and six third placegetters (up until 2021 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 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). Barrier 14 produced back-to-back Golden Slipper winners with Estijaab (2018) and Kiamichi (2019).
