2021 Golden Slipper

The Golden Slipper is one of the four majors in Australian Racing, held in the same esteem as the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, and the Melbourne Cup. It is an extremely prestigious event, and is the world’s most rich race for juveniles, with a whopping $3.5million prize on offer.

As a result it is a coveted race for trainers and owners, with the honour roll including some of the game’s best, such as: Sky High (1960), Manikato (1978), Miss Finland (2006), Sebring (2008), Sepoy (2011), Pierro (2012), and Capitalist (2016).

The 2020 Golden Slipper winner was Farnan, co-trained by Gai Waterhouse, which gave her a record seventh Golden Slipper as a trainer, with previous winners Ha Ha (2001), Dance Hero (2004), Sebring (2008), Pierro (2012), Overreach (2013), and Vancouver (2015).

2021 Golden Slipper Best Bets

After odds on favourite Enthaar’s failure in the 2021 Blue Diamond Stakes, the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace trained filly has been eased in the Golden Slipper market to $13 at the time of writing. She went out at a mad speed and spent up all of her energy, which saw her getting swamped in the straight. There are serious question marks over her ability to see out the 1200m, but she’s a class filly and we’re now getting a double figure price about her.

Profiteer hasn’t done much wrong to date and probably deserves favouritism, though there are question marks over the ability of the horses that he has been putting away. His racing pattern helps, he should race right on speed and take bad luck out of the equation to a certain extent.

Stay Inside had an outstanding win in the Pierro 2YO Plate and stamped himself as a leading contender, damaging the clock and leaving James McDonald shaking his head at the ability of the Extreme Choice colt.

Remarque from the Hawkes yard is oozing ability but has been slightly green on race day, and if he can improve his professionalism on race day, is certainly a chance.

Blue Diamond Stakes winner Artorious should get well back in the run, but displayed a monster turn of foot to put away his rivals in that race, including Anamoe, who will also be looking to hit the line strongly in the Golden Slipper.
