A 70,000gns yearling, Prince of Eagles is the third foal of Sleeping Beauty, an Oasis Dream half sister to recent Gr.1 Coral Eclipse winner Ghaiyyath and Grade 1 winner Zhukova.
Prince Of Eagles’ profile and that of his entire family has been boosted significantly with the first release of the Longines World’s Best Horse Rankings. Sitting on top with a mark of 127 Is Godolphin’s Coral Eclipse winner Ghaiyyath.
Brad Spicer, syndicate manager commented ‘
We’re excited to announce that talented UK stayer Prince Of Eagles has touched down in Melbourne as he continues his bright future on Australian soil. We recruited this horse to follow in the footsteps of our G1 winning import Kings Will Dream which arrived her similarly lightly raced before racing through his grades.
Prince of Eagles has won two of his four starts to date and had a very progressive Timeform rating in the UK. He has matured beautifully while he’s been at our pre-trainer’s property in the UK and arrives in Australia in great shape, ready to begin his campaign towards Group races in 2020 and beyond.’
We look forward to following his progress down under.
