Look out Melbourne Cup Carnival, there’s a new race in Sydney that is set to take some of the shine away from Victoria.

Its name is the Golden Eagle and it is worth a cool $7.5 million.

Ran on the same day as the VRC Derby, the race was implemented to keep top end gallopers in work heading into their four-year-old campaigns.

The inaugural running of the Golden Eagle was run on November 2, 2019.

2020 Golden Eagle betting odds

Some of Australia’s best up and coming 4 year olds have come together to form a capacity field of 18 with four emergencies. Funstar from the Chris Waller stable has come up favourite at $4.80 despite drawing the carpark for The Golden Eagle. The QLD superstar Alligator Blood is on the second linme of betting with odds of $6.50 and will look to right his wrongs following a positive drug sample from his Magic Millions win earlier in the year. Godolphin’s Colette will seemingly be suited over the 1500 metres and with a rain affected track looks well supported around the $9 mark.

2019 Golden Eagle Result

  • 1stKolding ($6.10/$2.20)
  • 2ndSunlight ($5.30)
  • 3rdMizzy ($7.50)

The inaugural running of the Golden Eagle was run on November 2, 2019 where the Chris Waller trained Kolding went on to win the $7.5 million Golden Eagle with Glen Boss on board. It looked to have been a hard watch for Kolding backers with gelding continually finding trouble throughout the home straight. But after a patient ride from Boss, the gap appeared and he ambushed the leader Sunlight in the last 50 metres to go on to claim the inaugural Golden Eagle.
