Saturday September 23, 2017

Ladbrokes Tip: Golden Pendant graduates can head to Group 1 Melbourne races later in the spring

The Golden Pendant is a Group 2 race for fillies and mares held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in late September during the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. The race was formerly known as the Research Stakes and is run over 1400m on the same day as the season’s gun three-year-olds face off in the Group 1 $1 million Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

The Golden Pendant is one of the key support events on the Golden Rose Day card, offers a lucrative $400,000 in total prize money and is run at set weights plus penalties. It has been won by some quality mares over the years including eight-time Group 1 champion More Joyous (2012).

The latest edition of the Golden Pendant took place on Saturday September 23, 2017 .

Golden Pendant Field

The Golden Pendant field attracts a strong class of fillies and mares each season, but usually not the top of the crop of female gallopers.

Runners in the Golden Pendant field may come off earlier Sydney Spring Carnival runs in a race like the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) that produced the 2015 winner Peeping (9th) and Daysee Doom in 2017 who improved of a lead-up third in the Sheraco. In 2014 the Sheraco Stakes winner Catkins went on to run second to Arabian Gold in the Golden Pendant. She also travelled to Melbourne and finished third in both the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) and Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m). That year also saw My Sabeel run second in the Sheraco Stakes and third in the Golden Pendant.

Golden Pendant graduates may back-up in a race like the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m) at Randwick in October, the double last achieved by Sharnee Rose (2013). in 2014 the Golden Pendant winner Arabian Gold was first-up having run second in the Queensland Oaks the winter prior.

Golden Pendant nominations close the Monday before the race runs on the Saturday with the field and barrier draw out on the Wednesday.

Golden Pendant Tips

Good Golden Pendant tips include checking for mares that ran top three in Sydney in their last start, have previous Group 2 or 3 form in similar company and that have strong records over at least 1400m in distance. Local runners have a strong record in the race as do the older runners as opposed to the fillies, so backing Sydney-trained mares is also a nice Golden Pendant betting tips.

2017 Golden Pendant Tips

Our Ladbrokes’ insider Golden Pendant 2017 betting tips and exotic Rosehill racing selections on the Group 2 will be detailed below a few days out from the race so stay tuned for the female gallopers to get behind in the $400,000 event this season.

  • 1st: #4 Daysee Doom ($5) – Nice price and plenty of boxes ticked by Ron Quinton’s widely-drawn mare who has the class to overcome the gate. Ultra-consistent five-year-old and never runs a bad race. Has been well positioned in this grade plenty of times and a killer Rosehill record (6-2-1-2). Undefeated in two runs over the 1400m and should enjoy getting out over the distance after the close first-up third in the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m), which looks the form to follow into the Golden Pendant.
  • 2nd: #1 Dixie Blossoms ($7) – Quinton’s other runner is also super consistent and a definite place chance. She has a good mid-field draw and Corey Brown retaining the ride second-up. She was fourth in the Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes (1300m) when resuming here a fortnight ago and is back against her own kind for this. Winning form up to a mile so extra distance will suit and showed her class when a length third in the autumn’s Group 1 Queen Of the Turf Stakes (1600m). Each way chance.
  • 3rd: #7 Bonny O’Reilly ($4.60) – Bjorn Baker-trained mare has been well-backed early coming in from $6 and is now challenging the Chris Waller-trained Omei Sword for favouritism. She is four-from-five at Rosehill and out to atone for her only loss at the track when fifth in the Sheraco Stakes last start. Gets a better run from her excellent gate here.

Golden Pendant Form Guide

The Golden Pendant form guide details all the key information of the race and its runners like lead-up form, barriers, jockeys and trainers.

Over the years the Golden Pendant form has stacked up in better races quite a few times even in Melbourne’s Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m). Catkins ran second in the 2014 Golden Pendant and third in the Myer Classic that year. In 2013 the Golden Pendant winner Sharnee Rose finished fourth in Crown Oaks, won by that season’s Golden Pendant runner-up Red Tracer.

Keeping an eye on the Golden Pendant form guide for mares coming out of the Sheraco Stakes is also important when tipping in the race.

Golden Pendant Results

The Golden Pendant results from the past decade have been dominated by the shorter-priced favourites. Notable recent Golden Pendant winners include Peeping (2015), More Joyous (2012) and Hot Danish (2009).
