Eagle Falls Wins Gr1 Oakleigh Plate

Monday, 28th February 2011

Arrowfield Stud stallion & 6-time Chilean Champion Sire Hussonet (Mr Prospector-Sacahuista, by Raja Baba) added a Gr1 triumph when 5YO gelding Eagle Falls (Hussonet-Desina, by Desert King) scored a 1.25-length victory in the $400,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield. Eagle Falls (ridden by Damien Oliver for trainer David Hayes) defeated 4YO mare Avenue (Anabaa-Virage, by Kenmare) & 3YO colt Hinchinbrook (Fastnet Rock-Snippets' Lass, by Snippets). Eagle Falls (a $170,000 yearling consigned by Corumbene Stud at the 2007 Magic Millions Premier Sale on the Gold Coast) took his record to 7 wins (also including 2009's Gr2 Salinger Stakes over 1200m at Flemington) & 3 placings (in 2010's Gr1 Manikato Stakes over 1200m at Moonee Valley & Gr1 Newmarket Handicap over 1200m at Flemington, plus 2009's Gr2 Alister Clark Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley) from 21 starts for $997,883 earnings.
