Racing’s Grand Final for 4-year-olds and the world’s 3rd richest race set to dazzle on Seven

Racing’s undisputed No.1 team will have all the action covered from one of the Spring Carnival’s most prestigious meetings this Saturday, when the world’s third richest race on turf, The Golden Eagle, headlines a momentous day at Rosehill Gardens.

As racing’s premier event for four-year-olds, The Golden Eagle is the one race fans can’t afford to miss this Saturday.

And the only team you need to tune into on Saturday is racing’s premier team on Seven, which will again be led by Australia’s pre-eminent broadcaster Bruce McAvaney.Joining him will be Katelyn Mallyon, Richard Freedman and Gerard Middleton at Rosehill Gardens, where Sky Racing’s Lizzie Jelfs will be trackside to bring fans all the news and interviews, and Kate Waterhouse will have the latest fashions and styles around the course covered.

With a $7.5 million purse that is topped only by The Everest and France’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, The Golden Eagle has again attracted a classy field in 2020.

Chris Waller’s star mare Funstar shapes as the horse to beat after her strong second in the Epsom Handicap behind Probabeel, but there are plenty of other genuine contenders including boom Queensland gelding Alligator Blood, Godolphin stablemates Colette, Flit and the untapped Criaderas, along with emerging star Sierra Sue, who has won five of her seven starts.

The other highlights at Rosehill Gardens include the $1 million Yes Yes Yes Stakes (1300m), where Everest place-getter Gytrash is poised to start favourite in a deep field that includes Haut Brion Her, Eduardo, Dame Giselle and Wild Planet.

While in the $500,000 Rosehill Gold Cup (2000m), Star Mile winner Purple Sector will look to continue his impressive recent form in what shapes as a wide-open contest, with Wu Gok, Nimalee, She’s Ideel and The Candy Man among the leading fancies.
