Future Tips & Best Bets For The 2019 Golden Eagle

The inaugural Golden Eagle is set to fly in 2019 when this new $7.5 million feature takes off from Rosehill on Saturday, November 2.

In an attempt to coincide with Derby Day at Flemington on the same Saturday, $4.1 million will go to the winner of this 1500m event that will be run under set weights conditions and is eligible only for four-year-old's.

10% of the allocated $7.5 million will go to the winning owners choice of charity and the Golden Eagle will now be Australia's third richest race

Golden Eagle Best Future Bet - Arcadia Queen @ $3

She's a big lure for Racing NSW to complement the first edition of the Golden Eagle and there's a strong enough case to suggest that this mare may be the best galloper in the country.

It's perhaps a little early for those grand statements but it's hard to fault her resume which reads six starts for seven wins and in her first racing preparation, she's belted a Kingston Town field which included four group one winners.

That's tough to do, especially for an early three-year-old filly who was then spelled with Bob Peters electing to bypass the autumn and bring her over to the Chris Waller stable.

Admittedly did have the favors first-up on September 14 when resuming but won like a classy customer should and will build up for this first by contesting The Everest on October 19.

Golden Eagle Next Best Future Bet - Brutal @ $5

A tough entire by O'Reilly is the 2019 Doncaster winner who returned for his spring assault in fine style by winning the Premiere Stakes on October 5 and taking the scalps of some potential Everest candidates with that.

It's certainly no crime in having Winx as the last opponent to defeat you which is the case for Brutal who used that George Ryder runner-up performance to leap into his last group one victory.

He's a bomb-proof racehorse and whilst he lacks the brilliance of Arcadia Queen, he makes up for that with his tactical speed and his versatility where he handles any surface and can sustain a long sprint off any tempo.

A major contender and I can only see him running well.

Golden Eagle Roughie Future Bet - The Inevitable @ $17

From the strong Tasmanian yard of Scott Brunton comes this four-year-old by Dundeel who was purchased at the 2017 Adelaide Magic Millions Sale for $90,000.

That's proving to be a decent bargain as he's now amassed almost $400,000 in prize money and it's not as if he's bred to be a slouch either being a half brother to a group three and multiple listed winner in Blahnik.

It's hard to fault how well he's going this time in with a big finish first-up down the Flemington straight before demolishing his rivals at Moonee Valley to the tune of four lengths and the runner-up in that was coming off a group victory.

He is currently around a $3.00 chance for the Silver Eagle lead-up this Saturday and if you like him via his first attempt on the "Sydney leg" then he's worth an early ticket for the big dance.
