The Rosehill Gold Cup is a 2000m middle-distance staying race held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late October each spring as part of the lucrative The Golden Eagle Race Day in Sydney.

Part of the wider $50 million The Everest Carnival, the meeting is headlined by the four-year-olds facing off in the $7.5 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) and runs on the same date as Melbourne’s coveted Victoria Derby Day card at Flemington.

Also a Special Conditions event, the Rosehill Gold Cup was inaugurated in the same year as The Golden Eagle (2019) and is a quality handicap race open to gallopers aged three-years-old and above.

Racing NSW offer a $500,000 bonus to any Rosehill Gold Cup winner that previously wins any of these four earlier events:  Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m), the Group 2 Hill Stakes (1800m) now worth $1 million in prize money, the Group 3 Craven Plate (2000m) or the St Leger (2600m).

In 2021 Think It Over made history claiming the Hill Stakes –  Craven Plate – Rosehill Gold Cup treble to claim the million-dollar bonus and take his career prize money up over $4 million.

Should a horse run in any of those earlier Sydney Spring Racing Carnival races without success before winning the Rosehill Gold Cup that year, they are eligible for a $100,000 bonus.

Kembla Grange’s $1 million The Gong (1600m) held in mid to late November makes a nice next-up target for Rosehill Gold Cup graduates.
