The Golden Eagle is one of the youngest and richest races on the Australian Racing Calendar, second only in prize money only to the $20 million The Everest as of 2022 having surpassed the stakes on offer in the iconic $8 million Melbourne Cup.

First added to the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival in 2019, The Golden Eagle now offers a massive $10 million prize purse and takes place on a huge day of racing in late October or early November at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse.

Part of the wider The Everest Racing Carnival, The Golden Eagle is a set weights race contested over 1500m and is open only to four-year-old horses.

It runs in Sydney on the Saturday prior to Victoria’s Melbourne Cup Day, the same date Melbourne hosts its time-honoured Victoria Derby Day program.

As well as The Golden Eagle race, the other Rosehill features in New South Wales that day include the $3 million Winners Stakes – renamed each year in honour of the previous season’s The Everest winner – and the $750,000 Rosehill Gold Cup.

The race is part of the “Golden Slam” of races that begins for the two-year-olds with the $5 million Golden Slipper and continues for the three-year-olds with the $1 million Golden Rose. There’s an incredible $5 million bonus for any horse that manages to win all three races over their career.

The week of the 2022 edition the Golden Eagle field size was increased from 18 to 20 starters.

In 2023 Obamburumai from Japan became the first internationally-trained Golden Eagle winner.

WHICH HORSE WILL WIN The Golden Eagle in 2023?

Which horse will win the 2023 The Golden Eagle comes down to a number of key form factors including the barriers, form over the distance and their previous race experience against similar rivals.

When selecting The Golden Eagle winner it is also important to consider:

  • Golden Horses: Looking out for any horses that performed well in the previous season’s Golden Rose is a good tip for The Golden Eagle.
  • Group 1 Graduates: Horses coming off a spring Group 1 lead-up make the best bet in The Golden Eagle. In 2019 the inaugural The Golden Eagle winner Kolding came off a Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) victory. The following year, Colette (2020) improved on a lead-up Epsom Handicap sixth to win The Golden Eagle. In 2021 I’m Thunderstruck won Caulfield’s Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m) before his Golden Eagle success, while in 2022 I Wish I Win improved on a 5th in the Toorak for his Golden Eagle success.
  • Inside Alleys: The opening three The Golden Eagle winners jumped from single-digit barriers with Kolding (4 in 2019), Colette (6 in 2020) and I’m Thunderstruck (8 in 2021). I Wish I Win (10 in 2022) became the first champ to salute from wider than gate eight. Inside alleys were back in favour in 2023 with the Japanese-trained Obamburumai saluting from barrier 2.

The Golden Eagle FAVOURITES 2023

The favourites in The Golden Eagle betting for 2023 include the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained Hawaii Five Oh coming off a run in the $20 million The Everest, Group 1 winning filly from Perth Amelia’s Jewel who ran second in the inaugural $4 million The Quokka race last preparation, brilliant New Zealand-trained mare Legarto who won the autumn’s Group 1 Australian Guineas down under, and lightly-raced Japanese galloper Obamburumai tipped to make an impact in Australia over the spring.

I’m Thunderstruck ($3.50 in 2021) is the latest and to date only The Golden Eagle favourite to win.
