$7.5 million Golden Eagle for Sydney

Sydney is to have a new $7.5 million race in spring – the Golden Eagle for four-year-olds over 1500 metres at Rosehill.

The inaugural set weights race will be run on November 2, 2019, the same day as the Victoria Derby at Flemington.

The Golden Eagle will be the third leg of a unique treble at Rosehill incorporating the Golden Slipper for two-year-olds and the Golden Rose for three-year-olds with any horse that can win all three to get a $5 million bonus.
