Widden Stud are thrilled to announce an exciting $2million bonus for the progeny of our superbly credentialed young sire Trapeze Artist, who has more entries for the 2023 Golden Slipper than any other first season sire.

Trapeze Artist’s owner Bert Vieira is offering $2million spread over four years with $500,000 in each of the next four racing seasons to be paid out to the owners of the first Group I winning 2YO by the champion son of Snitzel.

There are five Group I races for juveniles run in Australia each season and the bonus will be offered in 2023, 2024, 2025 and 2026:
