The 2016 Tea Rose Stakes is a Group 2 event held in September each year at Rosehill Racecourse when the Sydney Spring Carnival really starts to heat up. The distance starts to step up too with 1500m the journey for a prize pool of $175,000.
The event is for three-year-old fillies and leads in perfectly to the Group 1 Flight Stakes at Randwick in a fortnights time. Horses will come into the race from the Group 2 Furious Stakes two weeks earlier, a race that is a brilliant form guide for the Tea Rose Stakes with the vast majority of winners running in that event.
The winning percentage going on to the Flight Stakes is even better with around four in five winners having run in this race before contesting the Group 1.
More Strawberries (2010), Samantha Miss (2008), Mnemosyne (2005), Prisoner Of Love (2004), Shamekha (2003), Victory Vein (2002) are all horses which have completed the Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes double in recent years.
More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008), Cheeky Choice (2006), Ha Ha (2001), and Unworldy (2000) all managed to complete the Tea Rose, Flight Stakes double.
The treble has proved a little harder with Samantha Miss (2008), Unworldly (2000), Danglissa (1999), Sunline (1998) crossing first in the Furious Stakes, Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes in the same year.
Just two fillies have managed the illustrious four from four though which starts with the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes earlier in the season, Samantha Miss (2008) and Angst (1993) completing the entire ‘Princess Series’.
