Golden Eagle

Betting Guide
Date: Saturday, October 29, 2022
Location: Rosehill Gardens
Prize Money: $8,000,000
Distance: 1500m

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

The Golden Eagle worth a cool $8 million, which makes it the fourth-richest turf race in the world – behind only The Everest, the Melbourne Cup and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.

Run at Rosehill Gardens on the same day as the VRC Derby, the race was implemented to give four-year-olds a feature as part of the ‘Golden’ series which also includes the Golden Slipper Stakes (2YO) and Golden Rose Stakes (3YO).

The 1500m event is quickly becoming a goal for many trainers and connections, purely based on the ridiculous amount of money on the line.

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

Golden Eagle results & past winners

  • The Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained I’m Thunderstruck knuckled down inside the final furlong to claim the Golden Eagle by a nostril. Despite looking like he was going to struggle to win, I’m Thunderstruck exploded late on in the piece under the urgings of Hugh Bowman to claim Count De Rupee in the final stride of the 1500m event. The win in the Golden Eagle backed up his win in the Toorak Handicap and further stamped himself as one of the best middle distance horses in Australia.
  • As many astute judges predicted, Godolphin mare Colette would relish the Heavy 9 conditions dished up on Golden Eagle Day, with the daughter of Hallowed Crown storming home down the centre of the track to win in a narrow photo with Icebath, giving Koby Jennings his first major race success. Jumping from barrier six, Colette settled with only five horses behind her before coming to the extreme outside in the straight. Icebath made it a thrilling finish, bursting through the centre of the field to force a tricky photo for the judges to split.
  • 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 50m to claim the inaugural Golden Eagle.
