Bold Eagle Soars Once Again in Prix d' Amerique

Due to injury, I'm limited as to how much typing I can do so I will be brief.  Bold Eagle was victorious for the second straight time in the Prix d' Amerique at Vincennes Racecourse.  The winning mile rate for the 2,700 meter race was 1:54.3 (1:11.2 kilometer rate).  Frank Nivard was the winning driver.e

When watching the race, Bold Eagle is number 17 and Frank Nivard has red silks with a yellow cap.  When he finally gets into stalking position, there was no doubt who the winner was going to be; he's that good.

With his victory, Bold Eagle is automatically qualified for the Yonkers International.   Being he didn't come to North America for the Breeders Crown, I wouldn't count on his showing up but racing fans can hope.
