The 2017 Golden Rose Stakes is a 1400m sprint race held at Rosehill Racecourse in September each season. The $1 million race is the richest event 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 second Group 1 race of the season in Sydney – following the Group 1 George Main Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick the Saturday prior – and takes place on the same day as the $400,000 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.

The 2017 Golden Rose Stakes is set to run at Rosehill on Saturday September 23, 2017.

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.
