Moyglare Stud has entered an agreement with the Irish National Stud whereby Free Eagle will join the INS stallion roster when he retires from racing. Free Eagle already boasts a Timeform rating of 128p and is described as ‘a most exciting prospect for 2015’. In reaching this agreement Eva Maria Bucher-Haefner continues her father Walter’s legacy of support for Irish racing and breeding. Free Eagle will be syndicated when he retires allowing breeders to participate fully in his second career. The syndication will be managed through the Irish National Stud. John Osborne stated ‘we have been admirers of Free Eagle throughout his racing career to date and we are honored to be given the chance to participate in his future and we thank Eva Maria Bucher-Haefner for her trust and support’. Free Eagle remains in training with Dermot Weld for 2015 and will have races like the Tattersalls Gold Cup and the Princes of Wales Stakes high on his agenda.
