The Eagle’s Back!

Short Heads - our weekly news snippets feature

Past dual SA Horse Of The Year Legal Eagle makes his seasonal debut in the eighth race at Thursday’s Turffontein night meeting, following a six month layoff.

Anton Marcus and Legal Eagle

The 7yo, who boasts 13 wins from 24 starts for Sean Tarry, will contest a Pinnacle Stakes over 1160m.

He is expected to bid for a 4th L‘Ormarins Queen’s Plate win in 2019 – but has a few rainbow bridges to cross, as it were, after we watched the Cape Mile on Sunday!
