The Golden Rose Stakes is a 1400m Group 1 race held at Rosehill Racecourse for three year olds. The set weights feature is held in the highest regard by trainers and connections as it is the first 3YO G1 of the season, and not only carries $1m in prizemoney but also the ability to greatly boost one’s stud value.
Godolphin’s star entire, Anamoe, was rolled as an odds-on favourite in last year’s Golden Rose, off the back of Tim Clark’s bold front running ride on the Waterhouse/Bott trained, In The Congo.
Run to the Rose winner, In Secret, has come up favourite for this year’s Golden Rose and is currently $2.70 with Dabble. Her stablemate, Golden Mile, is on the next line of betting at $5.50, after his dominant win in the Ming Dynasty, and Blue Diamond placegetter, Jacquinot, is at $7.50 after a strong first up win defeating subsequent G3 winner, Aft Cabin.
These three runners dominate the market but the chances certainly don’t stop there. So, we have dissected each of the horses’ chances for you and provided our horse racing tips! Read on below to find our runner by runner preview of the 2022 Golden Rose Stakes along with The Shark’s best tips.
It’s all Godolphin heading into the Golden Rose Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.

1. Daumier (7) – $41
Jockey – Mark Zahra 56.5kg
Trainer – Anthony & Sam Freedman
Blue Diamond winner who was just fair when resuming at Caulfield. Wasn’t beaten far in the Golden Slipper last prep at his only go this track. Looked good in a recent trial this way of young and is the highest rated horse in the field for a reason. Can improve at good odds.
2. Best Of Bordeaux (1) – SCRATCHED
3. Jacquinot (5) – $7.50
Jockey – Damian Lane 56.5kg
Trainer – Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr
Blue Diamond placegetter who resumed with a bang in the McNeil Stakes beating Aft Cabin. That win was no fluke and we saw what the runner up did to a good field last Saturday at Caulfield. Will drift back from the gate and be saved for one crack. Can win.
4. Sejardan (8) – $21
Jockey – Jason Collett 56.5kg
Trainer – Gary Portelli
Ridden very negatively from the wide gate first up and only got warmed up late. The step up to 1400m looks ideal and he’s drawn to get a nice run midfield or a touch worse. Has the ability to win a race of this nature, it’s just a matter of everything falling into place for him.
5. Political Debate (13) – $61
Jockey – Kerrin McEvoy 56.5kg
Trainer – Chris Waller
Well bred colt who was G1 placed last prep over a mile who found them a bit sharp first up in the Run to the Rose. Added distance is a bonus but he might need one more run before we see the best of him this preparation.
6. Promitto (2) – $34
Jockey – Joshua Parr 56.5kg
Trainer – David Atkins
Copped a check at a vital stage first up but still found the line well before another pass mark second up in the Run to the Rose. The 1400m suits and he should get a soft run from the inside gate. Will need some luck but can run a cheeky race at big odds.
7. Golden Mile (11) – $5.50
Jockey – Sam Clipperton 56.5kg
Trainer – James Cummings
— Racing NSW (@racing_nsw) September 21, 2022
Chased hard first up in the Up & Coming before a dominant win last start in the Ming Dynasty here at Rosehill over 1400m. Looks to have plenty of class and will have no trouble measuring up in this. One of the main hopes.
8. Brosnan (17) – $81
Jockey – Tim Clark 56.5kg
Trainer – Gerald Ryan
Pass mark for the big grey first up in the Ming Dynasty. He’s definitely up to this grade but would need to find a few lengths on his first up run if he’s to be taking home the winner’s trophy and may be wanting a mile plus this prep.
9. Sebonack (9) – $71
Jockey – William Pike 56.5kg
Trainer – Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes
Found the line nice late in the Rosebud first up before a luckless midfield effort last start at Moonee Valley. May pay to forgive his last run and assess him on his best form which would have him somewhere in the mix.
10. Basquiat (12) – $71
Jockey – Chad Schofield 56.5kg
Trainer – Chris Waller
Consistent colt who hasn’t been far away at both runs back this prep. In saying that he’s been safely held by Golden Mile at both outings and it’s hard to see him beating that runner home, let alone a couple of others here. Not the worst but can’t have him in the numbers.
11. Fast Witness (10) – $23
Jockey – Regan Bayliss 56.5kg
Trainer – Ciaron Maher & David Eustace
Won a Cranbourne maiden before stepping straight up to Listed company and proving too strong. Ran into a smart one last start at Flemington and was far from disgraced at his first go 1400m. Improving type who handles all conditions and must be respected.
12. Millane (4) – $31
Jockey – Luke Nolen 56.5kg
Trainer – Peter G Moody
Covered ground last start at Moonee Valley and whacked away gamely. Gets out to 1400m for the first time which looks a bit of a query but will get every hope from the soft draw.
13. Zou Tiger (15) – $41
Jockey – Ben Melham 56.5kg
Trainer – John O’Shea
Broke his maiden in good style first up before rolling forward and finishing down the track last time behind Golden Mile when starting favourite. Needs to lift on that latest performance and the wide gate doesn’t make things any easier.

14. Fireburn (16) – $9.00
Jockey – Brenton Avdulla 54.5kg
Trainer – Gary Portelli
Champion 2YO who resumed with a good effort in the Run to the Rose. She is a G1 winner at 1400m and the forecast of rain will only enhance her winning chances. She has to overcome a wide gate but her raging pattern should allow her to get some cover and finish off strongly. Big watch.
15. She’s Extreme (6) – $10
Jockey – Tommy Berry 54.5kg
Trainer – Anthony Cummings
G1 winning filly who ran well on resumption at Randwick in the Furious. Looks much better suited second up out to 1400m, has drawn a nice soft gate and is a winner here at Rosehill. Ticks a lot of boxes.
16. In Secret (3) – $2.70F
Jockey – James McDonald 54.5kg
Trainer – James Cummings
Didn’t have much luck first up in the Silver Shadow but made amends last start in the Run to the Rose when she destroyed her rivals. That’s generally the main lead up race to this and she excels on all surfaces. Hard to knock what she’s produced thus far and is a deserved favourite.
17. Paris Dior (14) – $19
Jockey – Blake Shinn 54.5kg
Trainer – Peter & Paul Snowden
Battled away ok first up in the Furious in treacherous conditions. If the weather forecast is anything to go by she’ll have to cope with similar conditions again and would likely need to improve a bit to be competitive.
Track conditions will play a key role in this year’s G1 Golden Rose, with showers forecasted for the Rosehill area in the coming days. Nevertheless, we still have an exceptional field set to greet the starter and a host of different form lines coming into the race.
GOLDEN ROSE STAKES

This is a very good horse about to peak on the right day!!!!!

Godolphin look to have a vice grip on the race with their pair of runners, Golden Mile and In Secret. Golden Mile was a dominant winner of the Ming Dynasty last start stepping up to 1400m for the first time, whilst In Secret surged clear to win the Run to the Rose which is traditionally the main lead up to this race. Both look great chances here and providing the track isn’t too heavy, it’s hard to see one of them not taking home the winner’s trophy.
Golden Slipper winner, Fireburn, was good through the line first up in the Run to the Rose. She’s drawn wide here second up but will appreciate the extra journey and loves the sting out of the ground.
Much the same can be said for Anthony Cummings’ filly, She’s Extreme, who resumed in the G2 Furious a fortnight ago. She’s drawn well here second up and will eat up the extra furlong.
Melbourne visitors, Jacquinot and Fast Witness, are racing well and have to be given a hope as does Fireburn’s stablemate, Sejardan, who steps up to 1400m for the first time and has a stack of ability.
