2023 Golden Eagle Field & Betting Update

Scratchings Update: #2 Attrition (19) and #6 Rediener (3) have come out of The Golden Eagle field due to lameness issues. 

The Golden Eagle 2023 takes place in Sydney on Saturday with a $10 million prize pool on offer at Rosehill and the final field of 20 is now out for the lucrative four-year-old’s showdown.

While Flemington kicks off its famous Melbourne Cup Carnival with Victoria Derby Day, after which the highly-anticipated Melbourne Cup 2023 field will be announced, the northern punters enjoy their own rich race card for Golden Eagle Day.

The action is headlined by the fifth edition of the $10 million James Squire Golden Eagle (1500m) and we have an open betting affair this spring.

Current favourite is classy WA-trained Amelia’s Jewel out to join Colette (2020) as the only Golden Eagle winning mares.

Simon Miller’s four-year-old daughter of Siyouni has won nine of her 12 career starts to date for over $2.74 million in prize money and counting.

A Group 1 winner of the Northerly Stakes (1800m) at home last summer her spring prep in Melbourne has produced two Group 2 victories and a last start ninth in the Group 1 Toorak Handicap (1600m).

Colette (2020) is currently the only mare to win The Golden Eagle

That lead-up performance at Caulfield on October 14 saw her 5.45 lengths beaten and she is out to atone with Damian Lane continuing associations for her Sydney debut on Saturday.

Amelia’s Jewel pays $4.80 in the latest Golden Eagle odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au.

She is joined at single-figures in the post-acceptance markets by three other single-figure fancies.

Occupying the equal second line of Golden Eagle betting are Hawaii Five Oh ($6) and Kovalica ($6).

The Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained I Am Invincible entire Hawaii Five Oh will don the number one saddlecloth on Saturday.

He chases his first win since the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1400m) at Eagle Farm back in late May and is also known for his third to subsequent The Everest winner Think About It in the Stradbroke that prep.

This time in he has been thereabouts in some high-class Sydney sprints including a second in the Group 2 Premiere Stakes before a mid-field sixth in the $20 million The Everest.

Hawaii Five Oh caught the eye with 58.5kg only 2.3 lengths beaten and will relish coming back against his own age here in an easier race still worth plenty in prize money.

The Waterhouse/Bott stable make a three-pronged assault on the Golden Eagle field also represented by New Endeavour and Coin Toss.

Kovalica meanwhile is one of a bumper five final acceptors for Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller.

Waller won the inaugural The Golden Eagle with Kolding back in 2019 and has a number of genuine shots at a second success this spring.

Tommy Berry rides the standout of the Waller contingent with Ocean Park gelding Kovalica best known for his two length Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) win back in May.

He was a devastatingly close runner-up to stablemate Rediener in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) two back and far from disgraced with fifth to another Waller champ, Fangirl, in the Group 1 $5 million King Charles III Stakes (1600m) on The Everest Day.

Waller’s Epsom winner Rediener, tenth in the King Charles last start, is also in the mix looking to complete the same double Kolding did in 2019.

The other Waller-trained hopes are Osipenko, Ace Of Kings, and the in-form Vienna Princess.

Snitzel mare Vienna Princess is at a current quote of $21 and could prove value with the last start $1 million Silver Eagle champion chasing a third win on the trot.

Legarto at $8 rounds out the hopes under $10 for the win with plenty of early money for the New Zealand raider.

The Ken & Bev Kelso-trained Proisir mare has an excellent seven-from-nine strike-rate to date including her Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) win over the boys at Flemington back in March.

She has had two runs since back in NZ for a Group 1 placing and last start mile victory with more weight putting her right in the mix back down under this weekend.

The official 2023 The Golden Eagle barrier draw took place on Tuesday evening with Amelia’s Jewel coming up trumps with gate five.
