Held at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, the Golden Slipper is worth $3.5 million in prize money and is open to two-year-olds. A sprint race, the Golden Slipper is run over a distance of 1200 metres. Known as the richest two-year-old race to be held internationally, access into the Golden Slipper field is highly sought after. There is automatic entry allocated to horses that have won races including Skyline Stakes, Magic Night Stakes, Pago Pago Stakes, Todman Stakes, Sweet Embrace Stakes, Silver Slipper Stakes and the Reisling Stakes.
