Eagle arrived at Sheriff Hutton in 2012 to run in the colours of Steve Hull. He won his first race for us at Chester in July that same year. He was a 2013 winner at Newcastle and then a winner three times in 2015, at Hamilton Park, Wolverhampton and Newcastle. Eagle was very easy to spot as he didn't have a tail!

We called time on the Eagle's career after he fell out of love with racing. He refused to go into the stalls and it was his way of telling us that enough was enough.

Upon retirement Eagle has taken up a new career racing but without the need for stalls. The story goes that in his first race his owner fastened a tail on him, and it came off in the race, which scared the other runners!
