Wonderful To Fly the leading lady

By Peter Wharton

The bonny Fly Like An Eagle mare Wonderful To Fly firmly established herself as the top mare in WA when she won the mares’ Free-for-all in 1:54.8 at Gloucester Park. She finished an unlucky second in the Group 2 $75,000 Empress Stakes a week later.

The four-year-old has now won 22 of her 36 starts for $440,725 in stakes.

The highly promising Fly Like An Eagle three-year-old Skylord scored at his first two appearances this season at Gloucester Park (in 1:57.4) and Bunbury and has now won five of his 10 lifetime starts.

Fly Like An Eagle also left interstate winners in Soar (Ouyen and Birchip), Hunter’s Folly (Cranbourne), Eagle Commander (1:57.3, Bathurst) and Eagle’s Response (1:59.7, Redcliffe).

A well bred son of Mach Three, Fly Like An Eagle has sired the winners of $2.6million from only four racing crops.

The Allwood Stud bred Nightwatch Star became Follow The Stars’ fifth $100,000 earner when she emerged successful at Newcastle on March 10. She won again at Tamworth a fortnight later.

Other Follow The Stars’ winners in March were the three-year-olds Gliding Star (1:58.9, Gloucester Park and 1:59.4, Pinjarra) and Brodie Boy (1:57.3, Pinjarra), Gladys Gugman (Northam), Step It Up (1:59.1, Narrogin), Trunkey Fetch (1:59.2, Bridgetown) and the trotter Elish Star (Pinjarra).

Rock N Roll World was represented by his third two-year-old winner from his first crop when Remarkable Rock prevailed at Gloucester Park.

Allwood Stud bred eight individual winners of 10 races during the month including Kissed By A Rose (Penrith), Gliding Star, Brodie Boy, Gladys Gugman, Step It Up, Nightwatch Star, Elish Star and Remarkable Rock.
