Held annually in mid-September, Golden Rose Stakes Day is one of the biggest events of the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. Headlining the impressive programme is the Group 1 Golden Rose, a much sought-after set weights event for three-year-olds with prize money of $1 million. It is the only $1m event of the spring in New South Wales. The Golden Rose was previously known as the Peter Pan Stakes, with Aussie turf champions like Kingston Town (1979), Sir Dapper (1983) and Brave Warrior (1994) on the honour roll.
