The Autumn Sun favourite for The Golden Eagle

The Autumn Sun

The Golden Eagle will be staged for the first time in November 2019 and The Autumn Sun has been installed as the earlier favourite for the new $7.5 million feature.

Racing NSW have introduced the new mile race for four-year-olds only and it will take place on November 2 - the same afternoon Derby Day kicks off Melbourne Cup week in Melbourne.

Rosehill will stage The Golden Eagle and this year's boom three-year-old The Autumn Sun has been installed as a clear favourite to win the first ever The Golden Eagle.

The Chris Waller-trained star is $3.50 with TAB.com.au and a clear top pick ahead of fellow colts Graff and Zousain with the trio the only runners in single figures.

The son of Redoute’s Choice has already won three Group 1s in just six career starts and was a brilliant winner of the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) prior to going for a spell.

“One of the first bets taken on the race when we opened just after midday was $1,500 @ $3.50 for The Autumn Sun,” TAB’s Andrew Georgiou said.

“The money didn’t stop there either with multiple bets of $500 at the same quote rolling in.

“He is a really popular horse and I think punters just want a decent price for him, even if they have to wait nearly a year for the race to be run."

Other Group 1 winners Amphitrite, Extra Brut and Sunlight are among a host of runners at $15 odds.
