The 2017 BMW results will be updated throughout the afternoon at horseracing.com.au and you can stay up to date withal the action.
The rain has continued to fall in Sydney this weekend and the Rosehill Gardens track is in the heavy range once again, but we saw on Golden Slipper Day that horses can still win from anywhere on the track.
The BMW is the feature race and only has eight horses left following the scratching of Our Ivanhowe, but it is still set to be a highly competitive betting affair and there is very little separating Jameka, Tavago and Humidor in the betting market with Ladbrokes.
The Vinery Stud Stakes is the other Group 1 event on the card and Foxplay ($3.40) is currently a narrow favourite, but there has been plenty of support for Dawn Wall ($4.40) and Harlow Gold ($5.50).
There are plenty of other key races this weekend as we builds towards The Championships that get underway next Saturday and you can find all the results below.
