Silver Eagle 2019

Saturday October 12, 2019

The Silver Eagle is a newly created  race for four-year-old horses to run at Royal Randwick in October over the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival on Spring Champion Stakes Day. It is Australia’s first feature race solely for four-year-old gallopers.

Offering $500,000 in prize money the Silver Eagle is part of the bumper list of new Special Condition Sydney races running from late September – early November over The Everest Carnival.

Spring Champion Stakes Day is headed by the $1 million marquee race for three-year-olds, while the Silver Eagle now takes place as the key support act on the card.

Contested over 1300m the half-a-million-dollar showdown is a set weights plus conditions event and is tied in with the lucrative $7.5 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) – the spring’s richest race for four-year-olds. Racing NSW are hoping the Silver Eagle and Golden Eagle races keep the country’s top colts racing on in Australia for their four-year-old season instead of being retired to stud as three-year-olds.

The Silver Eagle follows in the tradition of the feature 2YO and 3YO races in Sydney – the Golden Slipper and Golden Rose – which both have similar official lead-up races with the Silver Slipper and Run To The Rose respectively.

A Golden Eagle ballot exemption is on offer to the first three horses over the line in the Silver Eagle results making the Silver Eagle – Golden Eagle race double a new punt to try in the spring.

Along with the Silver Eagle, four-year-olds have the chance to progress through other spring races on way to The Golden Eagle including the $14 million The Everest (1200m) – the world’s richest turf race – at Randwick a fortnight prior.

The inaugural edition of the Silver Eagle ran on Saturday October 12, 2019 on Spring Champion Stakes Day at Randwick and was won by in-form Tassie galloper The Inevitable.
