The Golden Rose is a Group 1 set weights event for three-year-olds held each year in September at Rosehill racecourse in Sydney during the Sydney spring racing carnival in New South Wales. The race is run over a distance of 1400 metres and offers $1,000,000 in prizemoney. The 2013 Golden Rose was won by Zoustar from Dissident with Bull Point third.

iIn 2007 the Golden Rose was elevated to Group 2 status before being upgraded again to a Group 1 event in 2009, making it the first Group 1 race of the new racing season in Australia each year. It is held on the same day as the Gr2 Theo Marks Stakes & Gr3 Kingston Town Stakes.

Golden Rose info
Date: Saturday 13th September 2014
Track: Rosehill racecourse, Sydney
Distance: 1400 metres
Race Type: 3yo - Set Weights
Status: Group 1
Prizemoney: $1,000,000
2013 Winner: Zoustar

The Golden Rose is the richest race of the the Sydney spring racing carnival offering $1,000,000 in prizemoney for 3yo entrants. Being the only million dollar race of the spring in New South Wales, the race is fast becoming the spring event to showcase up and coming three-year-olds who may have their eye on the upcoming feature races in Sydney and Melbourne.

The best guide to this race has been the Gr3 Run to the Rose, held the previous month at the same track, having provided a number of Golden Rose winners and placegetters in recent years.

Denman (2009) won the Run To The Rose & Golden Rose double in outstanding style, as did Paratroopers (2005), while Mentality (3rd in 2006) won the Run to the Rose before finishing 3rd in this race. A number of gallopers have won or placed in both races and vice versa.

Races like the Gr3 Up and Coming Stakes for 3yo colts & geldings and Silver Shadow Stakes for three-year-old fillies held earlier in the carnival at Warwick Farm are also ideal lead up races to the Golden Rose.

In recent times Manawanui (2011) and Court Command (2006) have managed to take out the Up and Coming Stakes & Golden Rose double, while Duporth (2008) ran third in the Up and Coming Stakes before winning this race, so it will pay to cast a keen eye over recent 3yo set weight events if history is any guide.

Some 3yo gallopers contesting this race might also go on to a race like the Gr3 Newcastle Spring Stakes the following month and Ilovethiscity (3rd in 2009) went on to score a strong win in the Spring Stakes after running third in this event.

Others may head to the Melbourne spring racing carnival and Epaulette (2012) took out the Gr3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude at Caulfield after winning this race, before running third in the Gr1 Caulfield Guineas at the same track. Nechita (6th in 2012) managed to win the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on AAMI Victoria Derby day.

Zoustar (2013) ran fourth in the Run To The Rose at Rosehill on his way to scoring in this event and recent Golden Rose winners have been Epaulette (2012) and Manawanui (2011).
