Eagle | Coady Photo

Eagle Express became the first winner and stakes winner in one fell swoop from just eight first-crop foals for 2016 GIII Ben Ali S. winner Eagle (Candy Ride {Arg}). Second on debut here May 14, the 2-1 favorite broke on top before chasing Texas Thunder through a :22.67 opening quarter. Forced to go wide into the stretch when floated by the pacesetter, Eagle Express soared home from there much the best. The winner has a yearling ful-brother and a foal half-brother by Moonshine Mullin.
