The Silver Eagle is a 1300m race for held at Randwick Racecourse in New South Wales. It has set weights, is for four-year-olds, boasts a prize pool of $500,000 and is a lead-up race to the Golden Eagle. In 2020, it will be run on Saturday, October 10, the same day as the Spring Champion Stakes.

The Inevitable won the 2019 edition of the Silver Eagle, with Fasika and Mizzy running second and third. From there, the Patrick Payne-trained horse went on to race in the $7.5 million Golden Eagle but finished towards the back of the pack.

As mentioned, the Silver Eagle was created as the main lead-up race for the super-rich Golden Eagle. The races were introduced as an attempt to try and reduce the number of premier three-year-olds retiring to stud.

Although The Inevitable didn’t run an overly strong race in the Golden Eagle, the Silver Eagle still proved to be a strong lead-up to the $7.5 million race for other horses. Mizzy placed third in both events, while Behemoth, who finished eighth in the Silver Eagle raced to fourth three weeks later in the Golden Eagle.

2019 winner The Inevitable clocked 1:14.54 to beat the field, and the time wasn’t far off the 1300m Randwick track record. That belongs to Trapeze Artist, who ran 1:14.19 in 2019.
