The Five Diamonds News


The Five Diamonds is a brand new Special Conditions feature race held in early November during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

Open only to five-year-old horses, the $2 million showdown runs at Rosehill Gardens as part of Golden Gift Day. The meeting takes place on the Saturday after the Melbourne Cup and runs on the same date as VRC Champions Stakes Day (formerly Mackinnon Stakes Day) at Flemington.

Along with the $1 million Golden Gift (1100m) for two-year-olds, the other feature on the card is the Group 2 $500,000 Hot Danish Stakes (1400m).

The Five Diamonds will take place for the first time in 2022 and was added to the Sydney spring line-up at the same time as the $2 million The Big Dance (1600m), which will run on Melbourne Cup Day on the first Tuesday of November each year.

Run over 1800m, The Five Diamonds is run at set weights and serves as a nice attraction for five-year-old horses that may otherwise have been retired.

The race also follows on from the $10 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) for four-year-olds run in the spring.

The inaugural edition of The Five Diamonds will run on Saturday November 5, 2022 at Rosehill on the same day as Melbourne’s VRC Champions Stakes Day at Flemington.
