The 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 Randwick Guineas Day in early – mid March at Royal Randwick Racecourse, the Todman Stakes is a traditional lead-up to the Group 1 $3.5 million Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens.

Randwick Guineas Day is host to two Group 1 races – the $1 million Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) and the Group 1 $500,000 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) – as well as a number of other Group status support acts. Along with the Todman Stakes, the meeting is host to the fillies’ equivalent – the Group 2  $300,000 Reisling Stakes (1200m) – as well as the lucrative Group 2 $500,000 Challenge Stakes (1000m).

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. The Todman Stakes winner is exempt from Golden Slipper ballot and recent horses to complete the double include Vancouver (2015) and Pierro (2012).

Leading up to the Todman Stakes two-year-olds may run in the previous weekend’s Group 2 Skyline Stakes (1200m) on Chipping Norton Stakes Day, and before the Golden Slipper the following week’s Group 3 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill is a nice lead-up for Todman Stakes graduates.

Todman Stakes 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. The race has taken place at a number of Sydney’s racecourses over the years including Rosehill Gardens, Canterbury Park and its current home at Royal Randwick Racecourse.

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

Notable Todman Stakes winners in recent years include Written Tycoon (20050, Smart Missile (2011) Pierro (2012) and Criterion (2013).

The full Todman Stakes results going back to 2000 are listed in the below table.
