The Sydney Spring Carnival continues to change and evolve in an attempt to bridge the gap between its product and that of Melbourne’s. The Rosehill Gold Cup is part of that change, being introduced alongside the $7.5 million Golden Eagle to build-up a big race day. Alongside the $500,000 prize money, there is also potential bonuses for horses that can have success in the lead-up to the Rosehill Gold Cup.

Tally clocked 2:02.53 to win the 2019 edition of the Rosehill Gold Cup, however, he fell over two seconds behind the track record. In 2014, Hampton Court recorded 2:00.30, which still stands as the Rosehill 2000m track record.
