The press was correct when they predicted Bold Eagle, a babe at the age of five when compared to the others, would be the favorite to win the 2016 Prix d'Amerique at Vincennes Racetrack outside of Paris France and he did not disappoint as the son of former Prix winner Ready Cash won the race in a stakes and track record 1:11.4/1:54.4 (kilometer/mile rate) for the approximate 1 11/16 mile distance (2,700 meters), obliterating the former record by a full second.
Bold Eagle tracked Timoko for roughly half the race before making his move to the front where he managed to win with relative ease.
Though a losing effort, and no one typically remembers the loser, Timoko was impressive in defeat, finishing second in the marathon race. Oasis Bi finished third in the classic.
While there is more racing in store for the champion, on this side of the pond people must be wondering if we will be seeing Bold Eagle on our shores later this year. At the present time, this is unknown.
