One of the highlights of Australian racing, Golden Slipper Stakes Day is held annually at the end of March at Sydney’s Rosehill Racecourse. Not only is it one of the biggest events at the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, it is a day which features five Group 1 races, three Group 3 events and around $6.4m in stakes.
This is the richest single day of racing on the Australian calendar, headlined by the Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes, the richest race in the world for two-year-olds with a purse of $3.5m.
It is also host to some of the most prominent races on the autumn calendar, with the Golden Slipper complimented by another four Group 1 races - the George Ryder Stakes, the Ranvet Stakes, The Galaxy and the Rosehill Guineas. While the track may garner most of the attention, the day offers so much more.
With live music, kids’ entertainment and the famous Ladies Pamper Lounge, there is fun for the whole family. On the course, there are weight-for-age events, age restricted races and opportunities for our very best females to strut their stuff.
