2019 Empire Rose Stakes Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Date: Saturday November 2, 2019
Track: Flemington
Race Time: TBA
Race Distance: 1600m
Conditions: Fillies & Mares Weight-For-Age
Status: Group 1
Prize Money: $1 million
Alternate Race Name: Myer Classic

Formerly known as the Myer Classic, the Empire Rose Stakes pits the best fillies and mares against each other for $1 million on November 2 at Flemington.

With the weight-for-age conditions coming into play, it always makes for an exciting race between the older and younger thoroughbreds. We've picked a filly to come out on top this year.

2018 Empire Rose Stakes result

Shillelagh had been known as a runner which often stole punters' money, but she was too good for them in the 2018 Empire Rose Stakes.

The Chris Waller-trained mare came from the tail of the field and James McDonald picked a path through runners to storm home over the top of them. She showed the turn-of-foot that many punters knew she possessed and many punters reaped the rewards for their trust.

She closed at a good each way price with bookmakers.
