The Golden Eagle is a $7.5 million race for four-year-old horses that is held at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney. The race is one of the richest on turf and 10% of the prize money is given to nominated charities. It covers 1500m, has set weights and in 2020, will be held on Saturday, October 31.

The Chris Waller-trained Kolding won the inaugural running of the Golden Eagle in 2019. Sunlight and Mizzy finishing second and third respectively, with Behemoth rounding out the first four. After the victory, Kolding took no further part in the spring and did not run again in 2019.

Racing NSW continues to increase its efforts to build up their Spring Racing Carnival in a bid to take some of the spotlight away from Victoria. Part of that push was the introduction of the Golden Eagle, which was first introduced in 2019. Should a horse win the Golden Slipper, Golden Rose and Golden Eagle, they would take home a $5 million bonus.

Each runner in the Golden Eagle must nominate a charity of choice that is accredited by Racing NSW. This is because 10% of the $7.5 million prize money goes to charity.

 

Kolding clocked 1:28.28 to win the 2019 Golden Eagle, and although it was a solid time it was still over a second behind the track record. In 1998, Shindig ran the Rosehill 1500m track record with a time of 1:27.21.
