He’s Watching has begun his stud career in fine fashion by siring the first two-year-old qualifier of the season in New Zealand!
Eagle Watch (He’s Watching – Eagletons Girl) looked mighty impressive when finishing a close second to his three-year-old stablemate About Turn at Cambridge yesterday.
The mile rate was a good 2:02.5 (well inside qualifying time), with the last half cut out in a slick 58.6.
Trainer Mike Berger has always had a very good opinion of Eagle Watch and the plan now is to press on with him, hopefully towards the Young Guns Series.
Eagle Watch comes from He’s Watching’s debut crop and he is displaying the same traits that made his sire a great horse.
An undefeated US Two-Year-Old of the Year, He’s Watching showed incredible gait, speed and attitude to not only win all eight of his starts in his debut season but also set multiple world and track records.
We continue to hear tremendous reports on the progeny of He’s Watching from trainers across New Zealand and Australia which gives us great confidence that he will make an immediate impact. Eagle Watch is just the beginning.
