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 now the second Group 1 race of the season in Sydney following the Group 1 Winx Stakes (1400m) 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.

In 2020 the Golden Rose winner Ole Kirk improved on a lead-up second in the Run To The Rose and went on to further frank the form winning Melbourne’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at his next start.

The next year in 2021 In The Congo also won the Golden Rose Stakes on the back of a Run To The Rose second turning the tables on Anamoe.

In 2022 the Run To The Rose winning filly In Secret finished second to the fast-finishing Golden Rose Stakes champ Jacquinot who came off a Melbourne lead-up win in the Group 3 H.D.F. McNeil Stakes.

The 2023 Golden Rose Stakes winner Militarize was huge second-up improving on a fifth in that year’s Run To The Rose to win the Group 1.

The Golden Rose is also part of the “Golden Slam” series of races that starts with the two-year-olds in the Golden Slipper Stakes and ends with the $10 million The Golden Eagle for four-year-olds.

Golden Rose horses previously headed to Randwick a month later to contest the now defunct $1 million Bondi Stakes (1600m), a race won in 2020 by Golden Rose fifth place-getter Peltzer. As of 2022, the Bondi Stakes has been replaced by the new-look Stan Fox Stakes run as the Group 2 Callander-Presnell (1600m).

The form of the 2021 Golden Rose Stakes was franked with the runner-up Anamoe winning the Caulfield Guineas next start before a brave second in the Group 1 $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m). Anamoe would return the following year and salute in a host more Group 1 races including the 2022 Cox Plate race.

The 2022 Golden Rose form was franked with the winner Jacquinot returning to win the Group 1 CF Orr Stakes at Caulfield the following February. Runner-up In Secret meanwhile further franked the form with her Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) victory down the Flemington straight that Melbourne Cup Carnival.

The 2023 Golden Rose Stakes winner Militarize franked the form going on to run top three in a host more Group 1 races including the following year’s 2024 Randwick Guineas (2nd), George Ryder Stakes (3rd) and Doncaster Mile (3rd).

The Golden Rose 2023 form was further franked with the third placed Cylinder running a brave fifth in that year’s The Everest before winning the 2024 Group 1 Newmarket Handicap in Melbourne the following autumn.

The 2024 Golden Rose Stakes runs at Rosehill on Saturday September 28, 2024.

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.

In 2019 Bivouac won the Golden Rose before his Group 1 Newmarket Handicap success the following year at Flemington. He defeated Yes Yes Yes in the Golden Rose, the Chris Waller-trained runner-up franking the form by winning the world’s richest turf race, The Everest, next start.
