EAGLE FLIES HOME AT THE VALLEY

Rocking Eagle left it late but got there in time to land the Presidents Cup 3YO Handicap over 1200m at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

Last passing the 600m Rocking Eagle was brought widest of all in the home straight by Jordan Childs and finished powerfully to get up and edge Equaletta in the final stride to score by a nose.

Trainer Mike Moroney was one person on course who felt Rocking Eagle had got up.

“From where I was standing I thought he’d got up but it doesn’t matter about me, the photo showed he had got his nose in front and that’s what matters,” Moroney said.

“He’s a horse we have always had a good opinion of which made his previous start where he disappointed and left us scratching our heads. We went over him thoroughly and could find nothing wrong so just put it down to one of those things.”

There were four races over 1200m tonight with Rocking Eagle running the fastest time.

“It’s something to see him run faster time than the older horses and with the VOBIS bonuses it has proved an excellent win money wise,” Noroney said.

“I think there is still some improvement to come in the horse physically and when he does furnish up and strengthen I think he has a bright future.”

Rocking Eagle was a $160,000 yearling purchase by Paul Moroney at the 2018 Magic Millions sale at the Gold Coast and has now won two of his four races and earned $91,850.

Congratulations to his owners R & C Legh Racing Pty Ltd, G Devonport, B & C Thoroughbreds Pty Ltd, S T Laycock, Kariba Racing, T Harvey and Ballymore Stables (Aust) Pty Ltd.
