The Reisling Slipper Trial or the Reisling Stakes is a Group 2 horse race restricted to two-year-old fillies. The race is a sprint over 1200m at Sydney’s iconic Randwick Racecourse and is run under set weight conditions. The event consistently draws a group of talented young fillies which fight it out for a share of the $300,000 prize money up for grabs. Run as the Reisling Stakes in recent years, the winner of this race gains automatic qualification into the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper, the richest race for two-year-olds in Australia.
Overreach won the Reisling Slipper Trial in 2013 before going on to claim the Golden Slipper a fortnight later. Other famous winners of the Reisling Slipper trial include; Triscay, Bold Promise, Burst, Merlene, Belle Du Jour, Alinghi and More Joyous.
