The Golden Rose Stakes is a 1400m sprint race held at Rosehill Racecourse in September each season. The $1 million race is one of the richest events in the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival for three-year-olds and attracts a great group of youngsters every year. As a set weights race, colts and geldings are required to carry 55.5kg and fillies must carry 53.5kg.

The Golden Rose is the third Group 1 race of the season in Sydney – following the recently upgraded Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick  – and takes place on the same day as the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m). Three-year-olds traditionally come into the Golden Rose Stakes via a lead-up run in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) contested at the Rosehill track a fortnight prior.

All five Golden Rose winners from 2012 – 2016 came off a Run To The Rose start including Hallowed Crown (2014), Exosphere (2015) and Astern (2016) all completing the double. In 2017 upset Golden Rose winner Trapeze Artist upset the form winning on the back of a lead-up fourth in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m). The Stan Fox Stakes also produced the 2018 Golden Rose winner, The Autumn Sun, who improved on a lead-up third and who would go onto win that year’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in Melbourne next start.

Bivouac (2019) became the latest horse to do the Run To The Rose – Golden Rose double handing jockey Hugh Bowman with his fifth winning ride in the race and connections Godolphin their sixth.

The 2019 Golden Rose Stakes ran at Rosehill on Saturday September 28, 2019 and was won in a fighting finish by the favourite Bivouac.

Golden Rose History

The Golden Rose Stakes was first run in 1978 as the Peter Pan Stakes and the inaugural edition of the classic was won by Kapalaran. A year later, subsequent triple Cox Plate champion Kingston Town (1979) took out the race. The event was renamed as the Golden Rose Stakes in 2003 and gained its current Group 1 status in 2009 when Denman won. Notable recent Golden Rose winners include Toorak Toff (2010), Exosphere (2015) and Astern (2016).

The 2018 Golden Rose winner The Autumn Sun went on to win his next four races including a trio of Group 1 victories in the 2018 Caulfield Guineas, 2019 Randwick Guineas and 2019 Rosehill Guineas.
