Part of The Run To The Rose Stakes Day, which is headlined by the Group 2 Run To The Rose for Golden Rose hopefuls, the Sheraco is a 1200m sprint open to fillies and mares.

First run in 1998 the event is contested at set weights plus penalties and serves as a good lead-up into the Group 2 Golden Pendant. Mizzy (2019) was the last mare to complete the Sheraco Stakes – Golden Pendant race double.

The best mares out of the Sheraco Stakes are also now potential runners in the $2 million The Invitation race, an event the 2021 Sheraco winner Entriviere finished fourth in after a Golden Pendant third.

The world’s richest turf race – the now $20 million The Everest (1200m) – is also a potential spring option for Sheraco Stakes graduates with the 2022 winner Shades Of Rose finishing eighth in that year’s edition behind Giga Kick.

This season the Sheraco Stakes ran on Saturday September 9, 2023 at Rosehill Gardens, one day before UFC 293 took place in Sydney, and saw the returning Surround Stakes winner Sunshine In Paris ($8.50) charge home late for a big first-up success.

Sheraco Stakes Betting

The Sheraco Stakes betting markets are usually led by horses that ran well at Rosehill the start before in a race like the Toy Show Quality, or first-up performers that have a strong fresh record.

Favourites in the Sheraco Stakes odds have a strong recent record and single-figure fancies have dominated the results over the past decade.

Entriviere ($2.60 in 2021) and Shades Of Rose ($2.45 in 2022) are the latest favourites in Sheraco Stakes betting to win.

Sheraco Stakes Field

The Sheraco Stakes race field attracts a quality line-up of fillies and mares eyeing bigger targets over the coming months including the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) run back at the track. Mizzy (2019) was the last winner of both events in a single season.

Female gallopers in the Sheraco Stakes field may come via a lead-up run in the Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1100m) held earlier in the season. Again Mizzy in 2019 won both races.

In 2020 the Sheraco Stakes winner Haut Brion Her franked the form going on to run second in that season’s Winners Stakes back at Rosehill in November.

2023 Sheraco Stakes Field

The official Sheraco Stakes 2023 field of potential Golden Pendant or even Empire Rose Stakes runners is announced the Wednesday leading-up to the race, the full line-up to be published below.

The Sheraco Stakes 2023 final field features a small but quality line-up of female gallopers led in betting by the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained market mover I Am Me coming off a win fresh here by nearly two lengths in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m).

  • To Win: #4 Sunshine In Paris ($9 at time of publish) – BET NOW

It’s a diminutive but top-class Sheraco field this spring with a host of live-wire chances. Taking on the favourite and have the returning Sunshine In Paris on top at a nice price. The four-year-old Annabel Neasham-trained Invader mare was excellent last prep, ending her campaign with a narrow Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m) win at Randwick. She has won her only other first-up assignment, has been brought on fitness-wise with a couple of solid trials, and has a great strike-rate at the distance (4:2-1-1). No surprises to see her kick things off with another win here.
