Wings Of Eagles (Pour Moi) winning the G1 Epsom Derby at Epsom

First Wings Of Eagles yearlings proving popular at Deauville

Among those stallions with first yearlings this season is the Derby winner Wings Of Eagles (Fr), who spent one season at the stud where he was born and bred, Haras de Montaigu, before being switched to Coolmore’s National Hunt roster in Ireland.

A member of his debut crop will be heading to the Melbourne stable of Danny O’Brien after being bought by Jeremy Brummitt for €60,000. The same trainer/agent combination has enjoyed notable success with Northern Hemisphere-bred Russian Camelot (Ire) (Camelot {GB}), the winner of two Group 1 races in Australia and favourite for this Saturday’s G1 Cox Plate….

“He wasn’t just my pick of the day, he would have fitted in very well on day one,” said Brummitt.

Tina Rau was another to sign for a yearling by Wings Of Eagles, also at €60,000….Rau said of the February-born colt, who will be trained in Chantilly by Nicolas Clement, “He was my pick of the day, an absolute star horse. Overall I have been very impressed with the yearlings by Wings Of Eagles.”
