Saturday April 14, 2018

Ladbrokes Tip: The Golden Slipper is a key Percy Sykes Stakes lead-up race

The Percy Sykes Stakes was upgraded to a Group 2 feature race for the first time in 2017 and is part of a bumper day of racing at Royal Randwick for Day 2 of ‘The Championships’ each Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Officially registered and previously known as the Keith Mackay Handicap in honour of former AJC Chairman Keith Mackay, the event is now run under set weights plus penalties by two-year-old fillies. It takes place on the second Saturday of April each year alongside four Group 1 races – the Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Sydney Cup, Queen Of The Turf Stakes and Australian Oaks.

Since being added to The Championships series of races the Percy Sykes Stakes has increased dramatically in prestige and prize money and now offers a total of $600,000 in stakes. The key lead-up into the race is the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

The next edition of the Percy Sykes Stakes takes place on Saturday April 14, 2018 .
