2017 Winner: Now Or Later

The Rose of Kingston Stakes is a mares event over a distance of 1400 metres and the set weights and penalty conditions make it a race where typically the best mare will salute most of the time. The race itself is a handy mares event that has been won by some nice types over the years with Divine Madonna (2006), Will Fly (1997) and Excited Angel (1993) all winning the race.

Females contesting this event will more than likely go on to races like the Gr2 Tristarc Stakes on Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield or the Gr1 Myer Classic on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington which are both races for mares only.

Now Or Later (2017) ran sixth in the Gr3 How Now Stakes over 1200m at Caulfield before her fast-finishing victory in this event and recent Rose of Kingston Stakes winners include French Emotion (2016) and La Passe (2015).
