The Research Stakes is a Group 3 quality handicap for 3yo & upwards fillies and mares held at Rosehill racecourse during the Sydney spring racing carnival each year in September. The race is run over a distance of 1200 metres and worth $250,000 in prizemoney. The 2012 Research Stakes was won by More Joyous from Skyerush with Forarainyday third.
This race is held on Gr2 Stan Fox Stakes day and has been run as the 'Golden Pendant' in recent years.
The Research Stakes is a fillies and mares handicap sprint race that more often than not will attract females who may have run in the listed Sheraco Stakes held earlier in the carnival at Rosehill. The brilliant More Joyous (2012) took out the Sheraco Stakes on her way to success in this event at her next outing.
The race is named after former outstanding mare Research and tends to assemble more than handy fillies and mares who are best suited to the conditions of the race, especially those gallopers on the rise, and any who may be down in the weights and under the handicapper's guard.
Quality mare Hot Danish (2009) won this race lumping 61 kilograms and talented gallopers such as Judged (2008), Spinning Hill (2000) and Dantelah (1998) have all won this event.
More Joyous (2012) won this race second-up from a spell recent Research Stakes winners have been Screen (2011) and Trim (2010).
