Golden Rose Upgrade To Gr2

Wednesday, 7th February 2007

The Sydney Turf Club's Golden Rose "continues on its upward trend & will be upgraded to a Gr2 race for this year's running in September," reported racenet.com.au. In the last 2 years the $1 million event was 1st upgraded to Listed level in 2005 & then upgraded again to Gr3 last year. The Australian Pattern Committee met yesterday & recommended the upgrade to the Australian Racing Board (who will meet to ratify the recommendation). The Golden Rose "has fast become one of the best future form races run in Australia for the 3YOs, producing future Gr1-winners including Racing To Win, Gold Edition, Paratroopers, Savabeel, God's Own, Niello, Al Maher, In Top Swing & Econsul, as well as a number of other top class gallopers that include last year's winner Court Command & last Saturday's Vanity Stakes winner Universal Queen".
