Four time Group One Winner - Fly Like an Eagle
The son of Mach Three – Fly Like an Eagle – is standing his second season at Yirribee Pacing Stud.
Former New Zealand 2yo of the year, who has his first crop of foals hit the ground this season, represents great value at $2,750.00.
A four time Group One winner, Fly Like an Eagle, defeated the best pacers of his time including Christen Me, Smolda, Sushi Sushi, and Sir Lincoln. He still holds the New Zealand record as the fastest two year old over 1700 metres with a mile rate of 1:55.9
In Australia the best of his 8 wins was his victory in the 2012 Breeders Crown Final for 3yo colts and geldings.
In New Zealand one his most memorial wins came in the New Zealand Derby where he defeated Smolda and Scandalman (who went on to win the NSW Derby that year).
As a 2yo, Fly Like an Eagle claimed the Group 1 Emerald on Harness Jewels Day at Ashburton and also the Group 1 Cardigan Bay Stakes.
His Sire, Mach Three, need no introduction himself as a Sire, but he is fast becoming a sire of sires though his sons.
However, Fly Like an Eagle has another X Factor in that he is out of a Falcon Seelster mare, Three Eagles, who decends from the family of champion Kiwi pacers Chokin , a dual Auckland Cup & Miracle Mile Winner & NZ Cup winner and Changeover, a NZ Cup winner in World record time, 6 time Group 1 winner and successful sire. Three Eagles is also the dam of Mach Doro (9 wins to date) and exciting filly – three Squared.
From the Sire of Sires, and out of one of the best New Zealand maternal families, Fly Like an Eagle offers breeders a golden opportunity to take advantage of an amazing chance to be eligible for $13,000 in first win bonus’s and prizemoney as a 2yo or 3yo.
