The Reisling Slipper Trail is an exciting Group 2 race worth $300, 000 in prize money. The event is run under set weight conditions for two-year-old fillies. The Reisling Slipper Trail is held at The Rosehill racecourse in Sydney, New South Wales every year in March and it covers a 1200 metre distance. The 2014 race was proudly taken by Overeach with Villa Verde and Spurrendous coming closely in second and third respectively.
Winning the Reisling Slipper Trail comes with some added benefits especially an exemption from ballot for the big money group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes. The race is viewed by many horse trainers and jockeys as the perfect lead up race for the premier 2yo event in the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival – The Golden Slipper Stakes. The event is also held on the same day as the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Classic and The Ranvet Stakes.
In recent years, the Reisling Slipper Trail has been known to attract fillies looking to test their ability to run and compete in the Golden Slipper Stakes. The last filly to win the two races was Overeach in 2013. In its proud history, this event has produced not only one of the most thrilling racing in the Sydney Autumn but also a number of outstanding fillies have made their name using this event as a springboard.
The best lead up event for the Reisling Slipper Trail is the Sweet Embrace Stakes which comes sometime earlier in the carnival. Fillies that do well in the Reisling Slipper Trail can also consider taking part in the upcoming Gr2 Magic Night Stakes and thereafter they can try the Golden Slipper. The 2013 able winner of the Reisling slipper, Overeach proudly took the Gr3 Widden Stakes over 1100m at Rosehill before making the easiest of wins in this event. Some other Reisling Slipper Trial winners include Samaready back in 2012 and Elite Falls a year later.
