GOLDEN ROSE STAKES - FOUR FAST FACTS


The Group 1 Golden Rose is a race restricted to 3 Year Olds, run under the conditions of set weights. In 2016 colts & geldings will be allocated 56.5kg with fillies to carry 54.5kg. The race was originally held as the Peter Pan Stakes to honour the former dual Melbourne Cup winner and in 2003 was renamed to the Golden Rose, coinciding with a sharp increase in prizemoney.

First held in 1978 the race received Group 2 status in 1979 up until the race changed to the Golden Rose. Despite offering $1m in prizemoney, the race was not even at Listed level for 2 years, achieved Listed status in 2005 and then received successive upgrades until in 2009 it reached the current Group 1 status. It is the first Group 1 in the new racing season held in Sydney.

In 2017 the race will offer $1m in prizemoney with the winner to receive $600,000. The 2016 winner was the John O’Shea trained Astern, ridden by James McDonald. Other winners of the race as either the Golden Rose or the Peter Pan include Exosphere, Zoustar, Toorak Toff, Forensics, Paratroopers Fairway and Flying Spur.

2016 GOLDEN ROSE STAKES TIPS

ASTERN

John O’Shea will be shooting for back-to-back victories on the Golden Rose following from the win of Exosphere in the 2015 edition. Astern was well supported with the UBET All-in market and after originally being an unlikely starter in the race, as much as $51 was available. Firming in as far as $3.70 with UBET in the all-in, he opened in the final field market at $4 after receiving barrier 12. The start colt has been defeated just once in his 5 start career with that coming in the Golden Slipper where he jumped from gate 16 of 16. Bouncing back after that run his last start in his 2YO season came in the G3 Kindergarten Stakes where he was able to dead-heat for victory with El Divino, with 3.5 lengths back to 3rd place.

DIVINE PROPHET

Resuming in the G3 Up and Coming Stakes, the Hawkes trained runner was able to score a narrow victory over Derryn and Thronum after starting from the widest gate in the nine horse field. After starting his career prior to the new year he was put away after a 5th at Randwick. He resumed in a 2YO handicap at Kembla Grange scoring a half-length victory in March. That warranted a tilt at the G1 Champagne Stakes where he finished the race off well after being last as the field turned into the home straight, getting into 3rd behind Prized Icon, beaten one length. Sent for a break the colt trialled twice to prepare for his race return, the first when settling last and not asked for anything over the 900m trial at Rosehill. The 2nd trial was over 1000m at Warwick Farm and he was a well held 3rd behind... read more Resuming in the G3 Up and Coming Stakes, the Hawkes trained runner was able to score a narrow victory over Derryn and Thronum after starting from the widest gate in the nine horse field.

OMEI SWORD

The Chris Waller trained filly resumed in fine style in the G2 Silver Shadow Stakes and was a dominant winner. After a long delay at the barriers and with a late scratching of Calliope, Omei Sword was installed the new favourite. At the 400m she was angled off heels into clear space and at the 200m really showed acceleration to sprint clear and on the post had put up a 3 length margin. The closing 600m was run in sub 35 seconds and she does possess a sharp sprint as shown in her career debut when winning over 1100m at Rosehill when finishing off in 33.71. She will have to defy a recent trend where the winner of the Golden Rose has contested The Run To The Rose, with On Air (1997) the last Golden Rose winner to come from the Silver Shadow.

THE ROUGHIE TIP

THE ROUGHIE TIP

EL DIVINO

Opening on the seventh line of the UBET final field market, El Divino will be lining up in just his 4th career start. His 2YO season saw the colt record a win on debut at Gosford on a track rated a Heavy 8. Second-up the colt went to the G3 Kindergarten Stakes and was able to score a dead-heat victory with Astern. After two trials, the first when close-up behind Capitalist and the second on a Heavy 8 when behind Southern Legend, Winx little brother started his 3YO campaign in the G2 Run To The Rose. Heading the field after kicking through from his inside gate he ran them along at a solid tempo and his run looked to peak at the 100m on the soft 7. If he can get a firmer track, Hugh Bowman believes the colt will be improved and have taken great benefit from his first-up... read more Opening on the seventh line of the UBET final field market, El Divino will be lining up in just his 4th career start.
