The Five Diamonds 2022

Saturday November 5, 2022

The $2 million The Five Diamonds will run in Sydney on the same day as Melbourne’s VRC Champions Stakes.

The Five Diamonds is a newly-created Special Conditions event to take place at the end of the now very lucrative Sydney Spring Racing Carnival.

It will be held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on the Saturday after the Melbourne Cup, which is now known as VRC Champions Stakes Day at Flemington.

Added to the spring line-up by Racing NSW for the first time in 2022 along with the $2 million The Big Dance (1600m), which will run on Melbourne Cup Day, The Five Diamonds also offers an impressive $2 million in stakes for its inaugural edition.

The Five Diamonds is a set weights race run over 1800m and is only open to horses aged five-years-old that may otherwise have been heading to the breeding barn.

It is an excellent target for the previous season’s four-year-olds who contested the now $10 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) the spring prior.

The Five Diamonds runs on the same card as the $1 million Golden Gift (1100m) for two-year-olds.

The first edition of The Five Diamonds will run on Saturday November 5, 2022 at Rosehill Gardens on the Saturday after the Melbourne Cup.

The Five Diamonds Bet Types

Win – The most basic type of bet. Put your money straight up on the runner that you think will win The Five Diamonds.

Place – Pick the horse that you think will finish in the top three positions but at lower odds.

Each-Way – Put equal amounts on a horse for the win and a place, the equivalent of two bets and you get paid out for both if it wins.

Quinella – Bet on the horses you think will finish first and second in either order. You can also pick for example one horse to finish 1st and then a combination. The fewer horses you pick the greater the dividend.

Exacta – An exacta also involves choosing horses that you think will finish first and second but it differs from a quinella in that it has to be the exact order you specify in the bet.

Trifecta – Very similar to an Exacta, but for the first, second and third placings in the correct finishing order. You can also Box Trifecta to finish in any of the first 3 combinations.

First Four – A First Four bet works the same as an Exacta and Trifecta but for the first four runners in finishing order.
