There are plenty of betting options on the Empire Rose.
Betting options include:
Exactly as it sounds, a Win bet is betting on a single horse to win the race.
Betting for the place generally pays around one quarter of the win odds and covers three placings with your horse having to finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd to be successful.
Half your stake on the Win and half your stake on the Place is an each-way bet. For example: $20 each-way gives you $10 on the win and $10 on the Place.
Quinella & Exacta
Picking the first two horses past the post will give you the Quinella or Exacta. The difference between the two is with a Quinella, your horses can finish in any order, and in an Exacta, your two runners must finish in the exact order you selected – unless you box them.
The first three horses past the post. You can select three horses in order or you can box three horses meaning they can finish in any order. Flexi Trifectas also give you the option to add more than three horses in any combination for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. The cost of a flexi Trifecta is calculated by the amount of runners you have in each placing.
The first four horses past the past. Same rules apply as Trifectas with straight out First 4 in order, Boxed First 4 or Flexi First 4.
Same Race Multi
Some bookmakers give the option for a same race multi where you can select certain runners to finish 1st, Top 2, Top 3 and Top 4. Odds are displayed next to each horse for each betting option, and odds are combined in a multi bet. The best bookmakers to bet on Empire Rose for Same Race Multis include: Sportsbet, Ladbrokes & Neds.
The ‘Quaddie’ is one of the hardest bet types to land but can be very rewarding with massive returns. All Quaddie wagers go into a pool, and the money is shared out among winners. The bigger the odds of each winning leg, the more likely the Quaddie will pay more as more people are knocked out of the pool. To land the Quaddie, you need to select four winning horses in four selected races. You can have one runner per leg or multiple runners, but the more runners you have, the more it costs to place the Quaddie bet. Flexi options allow punters to place large Quaddies but take a smaller percentage for a smaller outlay.

The Empire Rose Stakes is a Group 1 weight-for-age race for fillies and mares held annually during the Melbourne Spring Carnival.
The race is run over 1600m and carries prizemoney of $1 million.
It is usually run on day one of the Melbourne Cup Carnival, which has come to be known as Derby Day, where every race is a Group event and includes four Group 1 races.
The race was first run in 1988 where it was won by Concordance. In that year, it was known as the Empire Rose Stakes, named after the great mare who ran in no less than four Melbourne Cups and won it in 1988. For 2018, the race reverts back to the historic name.
The race had several other name changes over the next 17 years including the Honda Legend, Hong Kong Bank Stakes, Hardy Brothers Classic, Nestle Peters Classic until 2005 when it received the title of the Myer Classic which remained until 2017.
The race also experienced several upgrades since its inception when it began as a listed race. In 1995 it became a Group 3 race until 1997 when it was upgraded to Group 2 status. Then, in 2003 it became a Group 1 affair.
The race attracts the best mares and fillies who are at their best over the mile trip and they use this race as a springboard for other Group 1 races including the Railway Stakes in Perth.
Some classy fillies and mares have won this race over the years including Shoals (2017), I Am A Star (2016), Politeness (2015), Red Tracer (2013), Typhoon Tracy (2009), Divine Madonna (2007) and Lotteria (2005).
The key lead-up races are the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) run at Caulfield two weeks prior and the Group 2 Blazer Stakes. Also, take note of any fillies or mares who run in the Cox Plate the week prior to this race as some trainers do back them up seven days later.
Divine Madonna (2007), Lotteria (2005) and Miss Potential (2004) all used the Cox Plate as a lead-up race before going on to win the Empire Rose Stakes.
Following favourites has not been overly successful in the Empire Rose Stakes with only four of the last ten winning the race, while five others, failed to fill a place.
The most successful age group in the last 10 years have been four to six-year-olds.
Barriers have proven to be of no particularly advantage to runners as history shows an even spread of winning gates, although it’s worth noting that barriers 11 and 13 lead the way with three victories each.
These stats contradict the 1200 metre start at Flemington where runners have just a 240 metre run the first turn which logically would favour horses drawn inside.
