Eavesdropper Early 3YOs Strike Form
The progeny of Emirates Park's beautifully bred second season sire Eavesdropper (Kingmambo-Weekend Surprise, by Secretariat) have enjoyed a purple patch of form over the past few days with promising 3YO colt Got The Goss leading the way. Got The Goss (Eavesdropper-Magnifique Diamant, by Falvelon) kick started his 3YO season with an impressive victory at Canberra last Friday which took his record to 3 wins from 4 starts. His only defeat was at Canterbury in June when beaten by the talented Pitcrew who was tested at Gr1 level last start in the Golden Rose. Eavesdropper's other winners were 3YO filly Dropper Crystal at Rockhampton & 3YO gelding Another Charger who saluted at Port Macquarie at his second career outing. Eavesdropper commenced stud duties in North America before being secured on a permanent basis by Emirates in 2009. The half-brother to Gr1-winning sires A.P. Indy (Seattle Slew) & Summer Squall (Storm Bird) has sired 93 individual winners worldwide, eight of which are from his first Australian-bred crop.
