The Rosehill Gold Cup is one of the new Special Condition races added to Rosehill Garden’s The Golden Eagle Day race card on a Saturday in either late October or early November each spring racing season.
Contested in Sydney on the same day as Melbourne’s Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse, Golden Eagle Race Day features over $9 million in total prize money. The $7.5 million The Golden Eagle for four-year-olds the marquee event. It is accompanied on the card by the $1 million Winners Stakes (1300m) renamed each season in honour of the previous year’s The Everest winner, the brand-new $700,000 The Four Pillars (1500m) taking place for the first time in 2021 and the $500,000 Rosehill Gold Cup.
The Rosehill Gold Cup is run over 2000m under quality handicap conditions and is open to horses aged three-years-old and above. There is also an additional $500,000 bonus attached to the Rosehill Gold Cup from earlier Sydney Spring Racing Carnival races contested on two Saturdays across October – including a fortnight prior on The Everest Day.
The $500,000 Rosehill Gold Cup bonus is available to any horse that wins the event on the back of a lead-up win in either the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) or the Group 2 $1,000,000 Hill Stakes (1800m), as well as either the Group 3 $500,000 Craven Plate (2000m) or the $500,000 St Leger (2600m).
Racing NSW also have a $100,000 bonus up for grabs for any galloper that contested, but did not win, any of the above four races before winning the Rosehill Gold Cup.
The 2000m distance of the Rosehill Gold Cup makes it an interesting target for both middle-distance types and more dour stayers making for an open field and betting market.
The 2021 edition of the Rosehill Gold Cup runs on Saturday October 30, 2021.
