The Golden Slipper is run over 1200m with an average of more than 2000 nominations received from trainers searching for their shot at history.  The event is held on the first Saturday in April and is the climax to the Sydney Racing Carnival.  The Melbourne Cup would be considered the most recognized race in Australia but the Golden Slipper is not too far behind.

The first Golden Slipper took place in 1957 and was won by Todman. Interestingly, Todman was sired by Star Kingdom who went on to sire the next four winners of the Golden Slipper. In fact those bloodlines can still be traced to many modern winners.

The most prolific trainer of Golden Slipper winners is T.J Smith (6), while the top jockeys are Ron Quinton and Shane Dye (4).
