Golden Rose Stakes 2020

Saturday September 26, 2020

Ladbrokes Tip: 3YOs that ran in the Golden Slipper as a juvenile have a good record in the Golden Rose Stakes each spring

The Golden Rose Stakes is a Group 1 weight-for-age contest for three-year-old horses that runs as the third Group 1 race during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival following the Winx Stakes in August and the George Main Stakes a week earlier.

The Golden Rose is the first Group 1 event for three-year-olds every racing season and can be a key form reference for the Caulfield Guineas, Thousand Guineas and Coolmore Stud Stakes later in the Spring Racing Carnival down in Melbourne.

The Golden Rose has only been a Group 1 event since 2009 but the honour roll already includes some genuine turf stars including Toorak Toff (2010), Zoustar (2013), Exosphere (2015) and The Autumn Sun (2018).

The $1 million Golden Rose Stakes is also the first of 11 seven-figure Sydney Spring Racing Carnival races. It is the second leg of a new racing initiative called the “Golden Slam” with a bonus on offer to any racehorse that wins the Golden Slipper as a two-year-old, Golden Rose as a three-year-old and the $7.5 million The Golden Eagle – run for the firs time in 2019 – as a four-year-old.

This year the Golden Rose ran on Saturday September 26, 2020 and saw Ole Kirk defeat his stablemate North Pacific in an upset.

Golden Rose Stakes Odds

The Golden Rose Stakes betting markets are traditionally led by the in-form three-year-olds of the season with winning lead-up form from earlier in the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. Horses that ran well in the top juvenile features of the season prior, like the Golden Slipper Stakes, often sit high up the pre-nomination Golden Rose odds.

Fillies can be found at longer odds in Golden Rose Stakes betting each season as they have a poor record in the race against the boys, Forensics (2008) the last to salute. The fillies do have a solid place record in the event however including in 2017 when Champagne Cuddles finished runner-up to the upset Golden Rose winner Trapeze Artist.

Favourites in Golden Rose markets have a gun recent record having won back-to-back for trainer John O’Shea in 2015 (Exosphere) and Astern (2016).

Most recently Bivouac (2019) became the latest Golden Rose favourite to salute.

Prior to that the last punters’ picks to win were Duporth (2008) and Denman (2009). In the time between though, only one Golden Rose winner jumped at double-digits with Epaulette ($13 in 2012). In 2017 however Trapeze Artist stole the show at a blowout price of $41 in Golden Rose betting, that year’s favourite being his stablemate Menari ($2.35) who finished third.

The favourite in Golden Rose odds for 2018 also ran third with Graff a length behind the Chris Waller-trained winner The Autumn Sun.

Golden Rose Stakes Field

New season three-year-olds contesting the Golden Rose field traditionally come off a lead-up run in the Group 2 Run To The Rose (1200m) held at the same track a fortnight earlier. From  2012 – 2016 all five Golden Rose winners were Run To The Rose graduates, including Hallowed Crown (2014), Exosphere (2015) and Astern (2016) who completed the double three years on the trot.

The Run To The Rose – Golden Rose double was then achieved in 2019 by the Godolphin-raced Bivouac.

Another lead-up race into the Golden Rose Stakes field is Sydney’s Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) held in early September at Rosehill over 100m further. In 2018 the Golden Rose winner The Autumn Sun improved on a lead-up third in the Stan Fox Stakes to win the Group 1. That followed on from Trapeze Artist, the 2017 Golden Rose winner who came off a Stan Fox Stakes fourth that year.

Golden Rose Stakes Tips

The Golden Rose Stakes is one of the most highly anticipated events during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival and because of this the majority of racing experts have a set of Golden Rose Stakes tips every year. Horses generally come from both Sydney and Melbourne to contest the race and there are often plenty of different form lines converging in the Group 1 event.

Key Golden Rose Stakes tips include looking for horses that won their lead-up race with seven of the winners from 2009 – 2019 having taken out their final race before the Group 1 including Run To The Rose champ Bivouac (2019).

The Run To The Rose has provided more Golden Rose champions in the past decade than any other race, so a top tip is to back the best out of that Group 2 held two weeks prior to Golden Rose Stakes Day. Also, avoiding the fillies in the Golden Rose Stakes betting tips has proven successful historically with Forensics (2008) the only filly to beat the boys in the race since Dandify (2000).

2020 Golden Rose Stakes Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ exclusive Golden Rose Stakes 2020 betting tips will be detailed below the week of the race so stay tuned for the three-year-olds to back and sack in the Rosehill showdown this September.

  • To Win: #1 Rothfire ($1.95 at time of publish) 

Rob Heathcote’s brilliant Queensland raider is odds-on for a reason and looks very hard to beat with improvement to come off that impressive first-up Run To The Rose win at this track. Winner of the Group 1 J.J. Atkins in Brisbane over 1400m in the winter by a big margin, he’ll be eating up the same distance here in a small field facing a similar line-up of rivals as a stepping-stone into the $15 million The Everest on October 17. 

Golden Rose Stakes Form Guide

The Golden Rose Stakes form guide is highly sought after heading into the Group 1 event and is key reading to find the winner of the race. The Run To The Rose is the major lead-up to the Golden Rose and it has produced more winners than any other preparatory run, but the Up And Coming Stakes. The Form Guide on the Golden Rose race provides all the need-to-know race info including the lead-up form of the runners, their saddle-cloth numbers, jockeys and trainers, and the barriers.

From 2013 – 2019 four winners had a wide Golden Rose Stakes barrier draw including Trapeze Artist (14 of 14), so backing a wider-drawn runner can prove a good bet.

The Golden Rose Stakes form has recently stacked-up in later feature spring races including in 2019 when the runner-up Yes Yes Yes went on to win the world’s richest turf race – the $15 million The Everest – at his next start.

Golden Rose Stakes Form Facts

  • Four Golden Rose winners from 2013 – 2020 jumped from a double-digit barrier in the race
  • Fillies have a poor record in the Golden Rose Stakes results with Forensics (2008) the last girl to get the job done
  • Single-figure fancies have dominated recent editions Golden Rose Stakes with Epaulette ($13 in 2012) and Trapeze Artist ($41 in 2017) the only double-figure winners since 2004
  • Last start winners make the best bet in the Golden Rose Stakes with seven champions from 2009 – 2020 having won their lead-up

2020 Golden Rose Stakes Form

A link to our detailed Golden Rose Stakes 2020 Form Guide & Betting Preview will be provided for punters below the week of the race.

Golden Rose Stakes Results

The Golden Rose Stakes results of the past 30 years have been dominated by the colts and geldings with the only successful fillies in the spring feature since 1997 being Dandify (2000) and Forensics (2008). Recent Golden Rose history shows horses under $10 in betting having the best record, while from 2008 – 2019 five Golden Rose betting favourites saluted for the punters.
