News Insights

  • The best 2-year-olds in the land will battle it out for the Golden Slipper.
  • Ran over 1200m, the fast and furious contest is unmissable at Rosehill Gardens.
  • There is A$5 million in a prestigious prize pot.
  • Storm Boy looks to be the favourite for Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott.

When it comes to big races, very few on the international calendar can compete with the Golden Slipper at Rosehill Gardens.

Seen as a breeding ground for new and exciting talent, the race always captures the imagination with punters and online betting sites and there are plenty of big names in contention once again in 2024.

Picking the most exciting 2-year-old horses in Australia is never an easy task but the Golden Slipper is seen as the ultimate test of that age group by both punters and Aussie bookmakers.

Rosehill Gardens provides the perfect back drop for a race that should be fiercely contested and over in the blink of an eye, with the contest ran over just 1200m.

Key motivation for all involved here will be served in the A$5 million prize pot, with plenty of big name trainers, horses and jockeys all seeking to grab a piece of the healthy prize pool.

Caught in a Storm Boy?

The Golden Slipper pits the best against the best and there is no doubting that Storm Boy is one of the most exciting prospects in Australian racing for the best part of a generation.

Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott have 4 excellent contenders declared for the Golden Slipper, making them the training team to watch in the eyes of many online betting sites and Storm Boy tops their offering.

The unbeaten record Storm Boy has enjoyed is on the line here, but he seldom disappoints, and it could be yet another huge day for all connected to the horse.

Switzerland in the mix?

All of the pre-race attention on Storm Boy is to be expected, with the latest valuation of A$60 being levelled at an incredible horse.

However, one contender that could sneak under the radar a little is Switzerland, a horse that is also unbeaten in its fledgling career so far and who looks set to challenge Storm Boy at Rosehill Gardens.

The 1200m trip should suit and it is a horse that doesn’t know how to lose, making this one a fascinating contest in prospect.

Straight hit for Straight Charge

With so much talks surrounding Storm Boy with all Australian punters and horse racing betting apps, it is tricky for gamblers to find value in a congested market.

However, one horse that won’t fear this assignment whatsoever is Straight Charge, who will be well hooped by the experienced Tim Clark.

Along with the likes of Prost and Hayasugi, Straight Charge is a horse that could upset the applecart somewhat here, with the Golden Slipper known for its unpredictability. 

The Golden Slipper is one of the highlights of the Australian racing calendar for both punters and online betting sites. Storm Boy looks to be the horse to beat for Waterhouse and Bott but with some flyers in the mix, this could be a battle for the ages at Rosehill Gardens.
