Eagle lands compensatory prize

Kris Lees was forced to resort to Plan C with Loch Eagle at Randwick this afternoon, and the five-year-
old handsomely bagged a degree of compensation.

The Newcastle trainer was foiled in his attempts to claim starts in either the A$3 million Big Dance or
the A$750,000 Little Dance with the son of Lonhro, who instead raced to an effortless victory in a
Benchmark 88 contest.

Part-owned by Waikato Stud, Loch Eagle cruised along in midfield before rider Nash Rawiller peeled
wide near the turn and then careered away in the run home to win with a minimum of fuss.

“It looked a nice option, and Nash seemed pretty confident a fair way out,” said a stable representative.
Danny Greer said.

“The horse is going really well, and it was good to see him put them away like that.”

Out of the Shamardal mare Song Street, Loch Eagle has now won more than A$500,000 after he was
purchased for A$230,000 at the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling Sale by agent Bruce Perry, who
also shares in an ownership group.
