Soaring Monarch, 3YO son of Free Eagle won his maiden on the third time of asking at Limerick yesterday at odds of 50/1 for trainer Peter Fahey and owners Direct Bloodstock. Bred by James O’ Haire , Soaring Monarch is the third foal of the Dubawi mare Little Live Wire.
Racing Post Analysis: Soaring Monarch ‘showed a smart turn of foot to settle the affair just inside the final furlong marker. Time will tell how good a performance this was, but this was encouraging for his future.’
Jockey Kevin Manning commented post race ‘I rode him in Dundalk last year, he is a big tall horse and is still a little bit raw. There was always going to be plenty improve and he handled that ground well and travelled into it well. You’d be happy with that.”
