Golden Gift News


The Golden Gift is a Sydney Spring Racing Carnival feature run in early November at Rosehill Gardens.

A one million dollar showdown, the Golden Gift race was inaugurated in 2015 and is run at set weights plus penalties by a field of two-year-old hopefuls.

Contested over 1100m, the event takes place in Sydney on the same day Melbourne hosts VRC Champions Stakes Day – formerly Mackinnon Stakes Day – at Flemington on the Saturday after the Melbourne Cup each year.

The Golden Gift makes a nice spring target for juveniles eyeing a return the following autumn for a campaign aimed at the Group 1 $5 million Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

In 2022 the $2 million The Five Diamonds (1800m) race for five-year-olds was added to the Golden Gift Day card. The other feature on the program is the Group 2 $500,000 Hot Danish Stakes (1400m) for fillies and mares.

Fillies have dominated the Golden Gift results to date with five of the seven winners from 2015-2021 being fillies.

The next edition of the $1 million Golden Gift runs on Saturday November 5, 2022 at Rosehill Gardens on the same day as Melbourne’s VRC Champion Stakes Day at Flemington.
