This is without a doubt one of the biggest and most exciting days on the Australian racing calendar. In preparation for the Golden Slipper this Saturday, we have decided to go back over previous Slipper winners and the last 3 wins!
The Golden Slipper Stakes is a Group 1 race for two-year-old thoroughbreds run over 1,200 metres at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney, Australia. It is the premier two-year-old race in Australia and is the world’s richest race for two-year-old thoroughbreds, with a prize pool of $3,500,000.
2016 – Capitalist (by sire Written Tycoon)
Capitalist took out the 2016 Golden Slipper Stakes at odds of $8, winning impressively for trainers P&P Snowden. After being defeated in the Todman Stakes two weeks prior to the Slipper, many abandoned Capitalist and thought he couldn’t complete the Magic Millions and Golden Slipper double up. Despite a betting drift, Capitalist truly repaid his connections when he took out the slipper in 2016. Watch the replay below:
2017 – She Will Reign (by sire Manhattan Rain)
Filly She Will Reign took out the Golden Slipper in 2017, winning impressively in the wet despite being known as a dry track runner. A $20,000 yearling purchase, She Will Reign gave her trainer Gary Portelli his life’s ambition by winning the Golden Slipper and provided her syndicate of mostly first-time ordinary Australian owners with a fairytale result. This weekend, Portelli hopes to win his second Slipper with the half sister of She Will Reign, Time To Reign. Watch the replay below:
2018 – Estijaab (by sire Snitzel)
Just last year, Estijaab led from start to finish to take out the 2018 Golden Slipper Stakes with Brenton Avdulla in the saddle. The gate speed shown by Estijaab from a wide draw was incredible and the ride was labelled emotionally by the Hawkes Team as “a real winning ride”. Purchased for $1.7m, Estijaab has surely repaid her connections, having won over $2.5m in prize money so far in her career. Watch the replay below:
Reminiscing on these previous Golden Slipper winners is getting us excited for Saturday, where one of our trainers Tony Gollan has filly Vincere Volare running. And for just $275 plus $15/month, you too can own your share in our ready-to-race Lyrical Girl filly trained by Gollan. He has been experiencing some serious success on the track recently, and with her race day debut imminent, there has never been a more exciting time to buy into this filly.

With two out of three previous Golden Slipper Stakes winners being by miRunners sires, there has never been a better chance to jump on board the journey of premium level, thoroughbred ownership. Purchased as yearlings at the Magic Millions Yearling Sales in January this year, our Written Tycoon x Sponsored and Snitzel x Typing fillies are ones to be admired. From just $176 per unit plus $15/month, you can own your share in these extremely well-bred fillies.
They have both now began their education and have been broken in at Emeran Park, and are due to head to their trainers in the next few months. Our Written Tycoon x Sponsored filly is trained by Robert Heathcote in QLD, a leading trainer who has experienced 10 Group 1 wins so far in his career. Our Snitzel x Typing filly is being trained in QLD by jockey turned trainer Chris Munce, who is a trainer on the rise winning the 3YO $2m Magic Millions Guineas earlier this year with Boomsara.
With the early success of many Written Tycoon and Snitzel runners, we can envisage the possibility of both fillies running as 2YOs. Imagine them both in the same race! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to join the ownership revolution! Secure your unit today.
