  • 1st: #5 Aim
  • 2nd: #6 Ellsberg
  • 3rd: #8 Count De Rupee



The Silver Eagle is one of the newest races on the Australian Racing Calendar. Part of the wider The Everest Carnival, the $500,000 Special Conditions feature race runs at Royal Randwick in early October as the key support act on Spring Champion Stakes Day.

Inaugurated in 2019 when the favourite The Inevitable saluted for the punters, the Silver Eagle is run over 1300m at set weights plus penalties and is open only to four-year-old horses.

The half-a-million-dollar showdown takes place on the same day as the coveted Caulfield Guineas Day card in Melbourne.

The event serves as the key lead-up into the $7.5 million The Golden Eagle (1500m) held at Rosehill at the end of October with the Silver Eagle winner gaining a ballot free ride into that race.

The 2021 Silver Eagle took place at Randwick on Saturday October 9th, 2021 and was won in an upset by Aim at 30/1.
