THE Golden Rose is the first major race for the three-year-olds which held a nomination for the Golden Slipper earlier that year.
The $1 million feature is run at Rosehill over 1400m is now run on the fourth Saturday of September each year and showcases punters which horses have developed over the winter months. The past winners list includes some champion thoroughbreds such as Bivouac, Exosphere, Zoustar and Manawanui.
Formerly known as the Peter Pan Stakes, the Golden Rose is extremely popular with punters as the form out of the Golden Slipper isn’t quick to forget and fast horses attract support all over the world. A race dominated by the colts and geldings, The Golden Rose is one of the must watch races during the Sydney Spring Carnival.

Golden Rose betting statistics and race guide
The Golden Rose is open only to horses which were nominated for the Golden Slipper. Non-nominated runners can pay a late entry fee by the middle of June to be included.
The race is dominated by the colts and geldings with only one filly winning in the last 15 years (Forensics, 2008). There have been some quality winners in recent history, but punters weren’t able to identify the potential champion runners.
Exosphere was well found as the favourite in 2015 – one of three favourites which has won over the past 11 years, but some quality horses paid good prices in the years prior. Hallowed Crown won in 2014 and paid $5.50 when beating both Scissor Kick and Shooting To Win.
In 2013, champion three-year-old Zoustar won at odds of $6.50 and it also defeated two impressive horses in their own right. Former horse of the year winner Dissident finished in second and the talented Bull Point was third.
The likes of Epaulette ($13) and Manawanui ($7) both paid great-value prices and it shows that the Golden Rose is a great betting fixture.
Since becoming a Group 1 in 2009, six winners have been last start winners. The Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes is a good form guide with three winners coming out of that race, with the Run To The Rose an obvious form race considering the trifecta was the same in both the Run To The Rose and Golden Rose in 2019.
Peter Snowden is a trainer to follow with three wins and Hugh Bowman has five wins.

2022 Golden Rose Stakes result
Recent Golden Rose winners
- The Chris Waller-trained Militarize has produced a stunning finishing burst to claim the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill. Having caught the eye when flashing home for fifth in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) on September 9, the three-year-old Dundeel colt managed to add a third Group 1 win to his name at just his seventh start. Jockey Joao Moreira had Militarize ($6.00) settled on the fence in the second-half of the field and despite seemingly being strung pu in traffic with 200m to go, Militarize flew late to blouse Encap ($15.00) and Cylinder ($4.20) in the shadows of the winning post. The win handed the jockey/horse combination a third win from as many starts, all at Group 1 level after combining to claim the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produces Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in Militarize’s two-year-old season.
- All the talk in the lead up to the 2022 Golden Rose was about the two favoured Godolphin runners, but it was the Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained Jacquinot who claimed victory in the Golden Rose. Having been some ten-lengths off the leaders approaching the home turn, the three-year-old colt managed to launch down the heart of the track and get the better of race favourite In Secret in the shadows of the winning post. The win has to be seen to be believed.
- It was an upset victory in the Golden Rose at Rosehill, as In The Congo led all of the way to defeat odds on favourite Anamoe by two tenths of a length. The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained colt had never missed the quinella in his first five starts and was coming off a defeat behind Anamoe in the Run To The Rose, but the son of Snitzel was able to turn the tables in the $1 million feature. After jumping cleanly from barrier six under Tim Clark, In The Congo didn’t get over to the fence until they had already run 400m, but he was rated perfectly in front by Clark and was able to kick away at the 300m mark and put up a winning break.
- All eyes were on the one $1.55 favourite Rothfire heading into the 2020 Golden Rose Stakes, but it was Ole Kirk who stole the headlines with an impressive win. It was a massive result for the Hawkes stable as they trained the first two runners past the winning post and managed to put two lengths on their closest rival. Unfortunately for favourite backers, Rothfire failed to run a drum, with the $1.55 finishing fourth, with it later being reported that he had suffered a severe tendon injury in the run.
- Bivouac was a sure thing beaten at the 100 metre mark when Yes Yes Yes looked to have gotten the better of the Godolphin colt, before he lifted off the canvas to get up in the final strides to the joy of favourite punters to claim the 2019 Golden Rose. Amazingly, the trifecta in the Run To The Rose was the same trifecta in the Golden Rose in 2019.
- The Autumn Sun is unlucky to have tasted defeat in the past, but backers of the Chris Waller product may have been cursing the Sun once again after the champ settled at the back of the field. Nearing the turn The Autumn Sun didn’t look to be travelling all that well but the longer the straight went the harder the horse let down. In the final 100m the Autumn Sun gobbled up the opposition to record a powerful win ahead of stablemate Zousain and The Everest competitor Graff.
- Trapeze Artist was the second-rated runner for trainer Gerald Ryan, but it was clearly the best horse in the race as it cleared out for an impressive victory. Its form coming into the race looked average, but its form at the top level has always been good and that proved to be the case. Champagne Cuddles had the fitness edge and made good ground late and race favourite Menari battled on well for third. Read report here.
- Astern established itself as the class three-year-old of its year scoring by 2.25 lengths. The John O’Shea-trained colt by Medaglia D’Oro burst past runners with a big turn-of-foot and it gave James McDonald won of his biggest wins before succumbing to suspension. Included in the beaten brigade was subsequent group one winner Impending and quality filly Yankee Rose.
- Champion colt Exosphere recorded one of the easiest Golden Rose wins in history. The John O’Shea-trained runner won by 2.3 lengths over subsequent winners Speak Fondly, Sebring Sun, Ragesse, Press Statement and Holler which represented Australia at Royal Ascot in 2016. It was only a small field of eight runners, but Exosphere burst onto the scene with the win and will be remembered for it.
- In a close finish of just a long head, Hallowed Crown edged out Scissor Kick to win. The Bart and James Cummings-trained colt settled well back throughout the run and worked to the lead with under 300m to go. It held off Scissor Kick and the fast-finishing Shooting To Win and the first four all went on to handy careers. The win was one of four victories for jockey Hugh Bowman.
- Zoustar didn’t have the best run in 2013, but it pulled out a tough win over Dissident by a neck. Chris Waller lined up the champion three-year-old which had good support in the market and despite drawing barrier 16, jockey Jimmy Cassidy found a good spot in the field before it burst to the front with 200m to go and held them off. The field of 16 contained plenty of talent such as Bull Point, Cluster, Fast ‘n’ Rocking and multiple group 1 winner Criterion.
- Epaulette scored the upset win at $13 to give Peter Snowden another famous victory. The colt by Commands held off stablemate Albrecht by a head in another Golden Rose classic. The field wasn’t flush with superstars, but the win was quality and gave value punters a huge windfall.
- Another close finish was taken out by Manawanui in one of its toughest career wins. The $45,000 sales purchase proved more than its worth with the group 1 winner by holding off a stellar field. It beat home Smart Missile, Helmut, Foxwedge and Aeronautical in one of the best-quality fields in history. It won by only a short neck over Smart Missile, but it put on 3.3 lengths on Helmut.
