Eagle For KZN

Past dual SA Horse Of The Year Legal Eagle will likely make his second SA Champions Season appearance in the next few months.

Legal Eagle

Gold Circle reports that in discussion with owners Braam van Huysteen, Hedley McGrath and William Henderson it has been decided to send the seven-year-old gelding down to Durban for the Champion Season.

Legal Eagle has only ever raced once in Durban, finishing an unlucky fifth in the July as a three-year-old when starting favourite in 2015.

Meet Sean Tarry

His obvious Champion Season target this year is the Gr1 Rising Sun Gold Challenge. Tarry said the July could well be another race he would run in although due to his high merit rating it will likely depend on who else is taking part.

The son of Grey’s Inn will be going for his fourth successive win in the Gr1 weight for age HF Oppenheimer Horse Chestnut Stakes over 1600m at Turffontein on March 30.

The SA Champions Season commences on 3 May.

    Would’nt it be wonderfull if all of Do It Again, Rainbow Bridge, Head Honcho and Legal Eagle ran in the July this year! What a spectacle that would be! I will fly down to Durban to watch the race live.! Hopefully the Snaith stable has a change of heart and decides to run Do It Again. Even with top weight he would still be competitive. It’s a sport so why not be sporting!

    Agree. Also keen to see the Jock selection for LE. I hope Lyle is retained. July, need to be in it to win it, but a (Rainbow) Bridge too far for the miler champ LE… Nothing wrong with a place stakes cheque though and one or 2 graded wins over a mile as July preps.
