  • 2nd: #8 Rock
  • 3rd: #11 Kiss The Bride



The Rosehill Gold Cup is a $500,000 Special Conditions race run and won in late October or early November on The Golden Eagle Day in Sydney.

Part of the wider $50 million The Everest Racing Carnival, the spring feature is run alongside the lucrative $7.5 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) for four-year-olds and the $1 million Winners Stakes (1300m) race renamed each season in honour of the previous year’s The Everest winner.

On the same date in Melbourne, Flemington Racecourse is host to the coveted Victoria Derby Day program that kicks off the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

A quality handicap event open to middle-distance horses and stayers aged three and above, the Rosehill Gold Cup takes place over 2000m.

The half-a-million-dollar showdown also offers a bonus to any horse that can win it along with at least one of four other lead-up spring races: Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m), the Group 2 Hill Stakes (1800m), as well as either the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) or the St Leger (2600m). In 2021 Think It Over completed the Hill Stakes – Craven Plate – Rosehill Gold Cup treble!

Any horse that ran in any of those races without winning before saluting in the Rosehill Gold Cup results is also eligible for a $100,000 bonus.

In 2021 there was also an additional $500,000 bonus for eligible horses on offer in the Rosehill Gold Cup that Think It Over claimed.

The 2021 Rosehill Gold Cup took place at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday October 30th, 2021 and was won by the well-backed favourite Think It Over.
