The Run To The Rose is a Group 2 rated event held at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Sydney. It’s a three year old only event and is contested under set weight conditions making it a true battle of ability.

The race itself is a journey of 1200m with $175,000 in prize money on offer to the winning connections. As the name suggests, this is a lead up race towards bigger and better things later in the carnival. The Group 1 Golden Rose is also run at Rosehill later in the carnival, that event worth $1 million. In fact the Golden Rose is the richest and most attractive event held during the spring racing carnival in Sydney.

There hasn’t been a very long history between the Run To The Rose and the eventual Group 1 final however in 2009 Denman made short work of it winning the double in fine style. In 2010 Squamosa looked like doing the same after winning the Run To The Rose but he couldn’t quite get the job done finishing second in the major.

The Run To The Rose has only been around since 2003 with the inaugural winner being Gilded Youth.

The fastest time so far for the event belongs to El Cambio which ran 1:16.2 in 2007.
