Five Diamonds: Date, how to watch, past winners, latest odds and more

The Five Diamonds is a weight-for-age race for five-year-olds that takes places at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse, Sydney, in November.

Just like The Big Dance, the Five Diamonds is not a Group 1 race at this stage, but is part of a campaign by Racing NSW to boost the Sydney Spring Carnival.

The Five Diamonds is worth $2million and Racing NSW hope it will convince trainers to keep their top five-year-olds in the state rather than head to Victoria.

2023 will be just the second edition of the Five Diamonds, and here is our guide to the race.
