What more can one say about Dual SA Horse of the Year, Avontuur-bred Legal Eagle who once again stunned the punters on Saturday when he won the R400 000 Gr 2 Greenpoint Stakes at Kenilworth ahead of extremely competent competitors like Edict of Nantes and Captain America.
Is he set for a third consecutive win in the Queen’s Plate on 6 January? That was the question on everyone’s lips.
But the last word goes to Avontuur GM Pippa Mickleburgh who said this morning: “I will never breed another horse like him in my lifetime, and it’s an absolute privilege to be part of this magnificent athlete’s life and see him achieve these heights. He is a true champion!”
