Race history[edit]

From 2009 to 2014 the race is held on the first Saturday in April. In 2008 it was held in mid-April - four weeks after Easter in March. Prior to 2008, the race was held on the Saturday before Good Friday in conjunction with a series of races known as the Golden Slipper Carnival.

The first Golden Slipper Stakes took place in 1957 and was won by Todman by Star Kingdom who also sired the next four winners of the Golden Slipper. Star Kingdom bloodlines can still be found in the breeding of many of today's winners.[2]
