Huka Eagle Lines Up in Macau Sprint Trophy18 May 2018
Swiss Ace stakes winner Huka Eagle will look to add a further black type win to his record when he heads to the Listed M$550,000 Macau Sprint Trophy on Saturday.
Formerly trained in New Zealand by Tony Pike, Huka Eagle is now trained by Geoff Allendorf and the good looking gelding has won six races in total, bagging more than $350,000 in stakes during his career which has spanned across New Zealand, Australia, and now Macau.
A $160,000 yearling at Karaka, Huka Eagle began his racing as a three-year-old winning three of his first four starts – his only defeat at that stage coming when finishing second to Volkstok’n’barrell at Ellerslie – while his fifth career start heralded a Group 1 placing in the Levin Classic at Trentham.
Out of the High Yield mare Ugly Betty, Huka Eagle is an older brother of the smart Honk Kong sprinter Ugly Warrior who has won four of his five starts in the colony and is one of the most promising young sprinters in Hong Kong.
