Golden Slipper Information
The Golden Slipper is one of the biggest and most prestigious horse races in Australia. Taking place each April at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, the Golden Slipper is the richest race for two year olds on the entire planet. The 2017 Golden Slipper is being run on Saturday the 18th of March, with top class horses once again competing for a staggering $3.5 million in prize money and the coveted Golden Slipper trophy.
The Golden Slipper is run over a distance of 1200 metres under set weight conditions, and has been contested since 1957. A number of famous horses, trainers, and jockeys have been involved with this event over the years, with some names going on to perform well at the Cox Plate and Melbourne Cup after this event. Horses may come into the Golden Slipper from a range of events, with the most obvious lead up races being the Pago Pago Stakes, Todman Stakes for colts and geldings, and Reisling Stakes.
The Golden Slipper is the premier attraction of Golden Slipper Day, one of the biggest days of racing on the Australian calendar. Other Group 1 races on the day include the George Ryder Stakes, Ranvet Stakes, The Galaxy and the Rosehill Guineas.
A number of great horses have won this event over the years, including recent winners Sepoy in 2011 and Pierro in 2012.
An amazing atmosphere is generated on Golden Slipper Day, with tens of thousands of people coming out to enjoy one of the major highlights of Sydney racing each year. The 2017 Golden Slipper is sure to be as highly anticipated as ever, with the quality racing of the day surrounded by glamour, fashion, and racing culture.
