Like many of the countries greatest horse races, the Golden Slipper is about more than a single racing event. The Golden Slipper is held on Golden Slipper Day, a full day of racing and racing culture held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney each year. Golden Slipper Day is hosted by the Australian Turf Club, who put on a fantastic day of entertainment for everyone to enjoy.

Golden Slipper Day is a celebration of Sydney racing culture, including food, fashion, and other aspects of racing life. It is designed as a full day of entertainment both on and off the track, with the public mixing with models, musicians, designers, chefs, and other A-list celebrities. Golden Slipper Day is centred around the racing however, with five Group 1 races making it the richest single day of racing on the Australian calendar.

Golden Slipper Stakes

This event is the highlight of Golden Slipper Day, a 1200 metre race that has been run since 1957. This race has become the richest horse race in the entire world for two year old horses, with the $3.5 million on offer helping to attract a strong field.

The BMW

While there are five Group 1 races held on Golden Slipper Day, The BMW is definitely the second biggest race of the day. Being run over a distance of 2400 metres, The BMW offers a nice counterpoint to the pace of the Golden Slipper Stakes. The BMW is worth a total of $2.25 million, and was formerly known as the HE Trancred Stakes.

Storm Queen Stakes

The Storm Queen Stakes is worth more than $400,000 in prize money, which is a step down from the Golden Slipper and The BMW. However, this event is an important part of Golden Slipper Day and always manages to attract a strong field of runners. Run over a distance of 2000 metres and held under set weight conditions, the Storm Queen Stakes is a great race for three year old fillies who want to prove themselves in a Group 1 race.
