August 2nd, 2012

With the 2012-2013 race season now upon us, it is almost time for the highly anticipated spring racing carnival to swing into action.

While there is a great deal of action packed racing taking place in August, the major carnival meets kick off in September.

The first of these will be the Golden Rose Stakes Day on September 15, 2012.

Worth $1 million in prize money, the Golden Rose showcases the best three-year-olds in the country over 1,400 metres.

The Group 2 Theo Marks Stakes, Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes, and Listed Sheraco Stakes also takes place as part of the Golden Rose Day program.

The most talented horses in the nation will attempt to work their way into spring racing news by winning one or many of the variety of races that will be run during the carnival.
