The Golden Eagle History
The Golden Eagle has yet to run in the past so 2019 will be a history-making edition of the new race.
The $7.5 million race was devised to rival Derby Day in Victoria and it will give trainers and jockeys something to think about. Jockeys will have to decide between riding a stacked Derby Day card or have one shot at winning a massive prize money race.
Held just for four-year-old's, The Golden Eagle is an extension of the Golden Slipper and Golden Rose.
It gives the runners a chance to win big prize money at three different stages of their career.
If one horse wins all three “Golden” races, a $5 million bonus will be added.
10% of the prize money will go to charity and each runner will nominate their chosen charity.
That’s $750,000 going to charity and it’s certainly a forward-thinking initiative from Racing NSW.
The Golden Eagle Field
The field for the 2019 Golden Eagle won’t be confirmed until late October when RISA releases the final field, barrier draw and weights.
The Golden Eagle field will consist of around 14-16 runners.
The field is determined by prize money, class and various other handicapping factors.
The Golden Eagle Form Guide
It’s tough to label a good form guide for a race that has yet to be run. It will be best to look at the top three-year-old form from the season prior.
The current market is showing all the top three-year-olds and that appears to be the best way to go.
With The Golden Eagle being run over 1500m, that could appeal to both sprinters and milers. It adds some intrigue as to which runners will be targeting the race.
