Looking for info on this year’s Golden Rose Stakes? The expert tipsters at Neds have put together everything you need to know on the race.

The Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes is one of the key races held in Sydney over the spring for three-year-old horses, the 1400m showdown taking place at Rosehill Racecourse on the fourth Saturday of September.

Elevated to its current elite level status in 2009 the event offers $1 million in prize money. It first ran in 1978 as the Peter Pan Stakes, named in honour of dual Melbourne Cup winner Peter Pan (1932, 1934).

The race name changed to the Golden Rose Stakes in 2003 and has been won by many turf greats during their three-year-old seasons including in recent years Exosphere (2005); Trapeze Artist (2017); and The Autumn Sun (2018) and Ole Kirk (2020) who both went on to win that spring’s Group 1 Caulfield Guineas.

The Golden Rose Stakes is also now the middle leg of the prestigious “Grand Slam” series of races that begins with the two-year-olds in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper and concludes with the four-year-olds running in the $7.5 million The Golden Eagle. There is a huge bonus on offer for any galloper that manages to win all three races over their career.

Golden Rose horses may also now continue on to target Randwick’s $1 million Bondi Stakes (1600m) run over the mile in late October. In 2020 Peltzer improved on a Golden Rose fifth to win the second edition of the Bondi Stakes.
