Slip Anchor

Slip Anchor, sired by Shirley Heights and out of Sayonara (Birkhahn) was a thoroughbred race horse foaled in 1982. He won the Epsom Derby in 1985. Owned by Lord Howard de Walden and trained at Newmarket by Henry Cecil, he led all the way at Epsom and won by seven lengths from Law Society. He was ridden by American jockey Steve Cauthen, who became the first rider to win both the Epsom Derby and the Kentucky Derby, following his 1978 success on Affirmed in the American race.

Slip Anchor was the first Epsom Derby winner whose sire (Shirley Heights) and paternal grandsire (Mill Reef) were themselves winners of Britain's premier classic. Slip Anchor never won again after his Epsom success and was retired to Plantation Stud in Newmarket. His most notable offspring was the 1992 Epsom Oaks and St. Leger Stakes winner, and Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe runner-up, User Friendly.
