Golden Slipper 2020

Nominations for the 2020 Group I ATC Golden Slipper Stakes represent a considerable slice of the commercially bred rising two year-olds of 2019/2020 so we thought a Sale Mail and analysis might prove interesting.

From a total 2,435 entries 76% were offered at auction while the remaining 24% were either bought privately, leased or retained to race by their breeders.

Of those youngsters that went to the sales 36% came through a Magic Millions auction, 35% from Magic Millions and 5% from NZB.

This year at Australasian yearling sales we had 31 horses sell for $1million or more with 29 being nominated for the Golden Slipper including the Snitzel colt from Ichihara that made $2.8 million at Inglis Easter to be the most expensive yearling of 2019.

The most represented sire with 115 entries is I Am Invincible, while Vancouver is the most highly represented of the first season sires with 74.

Ciaron Maher Racing is the biggest nominator with 133 youngsters, followed by the Hayes/Dabernig team with 124 and Chris Waller with 97.
