Winners and Past Results for The Run To The Rose.
The Australian Turf Club hosts a number of Group 3 races during the spring racing carnival in August. This includes The Run to the Rose for three year olds.
The race is held over a distance of 1200 metres at the Rosehill Racetrack in Sydney.
A purse worth $200,000 is reserved for the winners who may have their eye on the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes at the same track later in the carnival, now the richest event during the spring racing carnival in Sydney.
Although the Run to the Roses is a new entrant with the first edition held in 2003, it has developed into one of the most sought after events by trainers in a bid to make it to the Golden Rose. After the Golden Rose, horses may tackle a number of higher group races in search of greater heights during the carnival and test their ability over extended distances. The 1400 M Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse in October prior to the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas and the Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick Racecourse over the same distance are among major events that trainers may target although most will have their eyes set on the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and Caulfield Guineas.
Previous winners include Mentality in 2006 and El Cambio in 2007. Punters ought to keep a close watch on three year olds that make their way through the event, who have the potential to win and place well in group races over the rest of the season.
