For France equivalent earnings before 1960 old francs (OF) have been ignored and 'FRF' refers to the new franc (NF) equivalent (100 OF = 1 NF).
For Australian equivalent earnings before 14 February 1966 Australian pounds have been ignored and converted to Australian dollars at the rate of 1 pound = 2 dollars (AUD 2.00).
Prizemoney comparisons: When Bald Eagle ran in the Epsom Derby of 1959 it carried a first prize of GBP 20,036.50 or AUD 50,091.00 or USD 56,102.00. The Melbourne Cup first prize of 1959 was AUD 31,000 or USD 34,719.00. In the USA Bald Eagle competed in 15 races with a first prize exceeding USD 50,000.00 of which 11 were more than double the 1959 Melbourne Cup first prize.
"(G1L)" means the race won was later granted Grade 1 status by the US Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association Graded Stakes Committee in 1973 the year American races were first graded. The grading does not operate retrospectively.
Bald Eagle ran in 9 races in the USA where course records were set. He won four. He set course records on dirt at 8f. (1609m.) 10f. (2012m.) and 13f. ( 2615m.) and on grass/turf at 12f. (2414m.)
US $ odds have been altered to reflect the Australian methodolgy that is a $1.00 stake is added to the US dividend (eg: US dividend of $1.15 is written as $2.15)
The prizemoney earned for each race appears at the end of each racing record save that in three cases the amount is an estimate and is stated as such. The two US estimates have no bearing on the total prizemoney earned in any of the currencies as the exchange rates used are annual rates obtained from the source stated above. These are a fair allocation of an unallocated amount for the 1959 year of USD 2,250 which was not allocated by the DRF book consulted.
