Run To The Rose Field

The Run To The Rose field attracts the best three-year-old sprinters of the season and class usually prevails in the race. Horses often kick off their spring campaigns in the Group 2 on way to the Golden Rose the following month and may have contested a race like Randwick’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) as a two-year-old in the autumn.

In 2012 star colt Pierro won three straight Group 1 races as a two-year-old including the Golden Slipper and Champagne Stakes before a first-up success in that year’s Run To The Rose. If not racing first-up runners may come via a race like the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) run two weeks before also at Rosehill, the last horse to complete the San Domenico Stakes – Run To The Rose double being Va Pensiero (2013).
