Alpine Eagle

An Exceptional Young Sire

Alpine Eagle

2022 Fee $5,500 inc GST

Alpine Eagle represents the dawn of a new era for Armidale Stud. He has already sired a three-year-old Stakes winner and is a magnificent looking stallion with the racetrack performance and proven pedigree to back it up.

As a juvenile, he had the precocity to pull off a 4.5 length demolition on debut and returned at three, bigger and better, winning the G2 MRC Autumn Classic (1800m) at Caulfield. Touted as one of the most dazzling racetrack performances in recent years, Alpine Eagle defied all odds in a barnstorming finish that put him on the map.

Alpine Eagle backed up in the hotly contested G1 Caulfield Guineas, where he went down a nose to fellow three-year-old colt Wandjina, but was victorious in defeat, beating home G1 winners Stratum Star and Kermadec.

Alpine Eagle has all the makings of a successful sire. His pedigree mimics that of proven G1 sire Dundeel, being by prolific sire of sires High Chaparral, out of a daughter of Champion Broodmare Sire, Zabeel.

Being free of Danehill, Alpine Eagle offers an excellent outcross for breeders and descends from the Sadler’s Wells line, which has proven to work well in Tasmania, with former resident sire Savoire Vivre being a great example.

With Alpine Eagle’s oldest crop now three-year-old’s, the eagles are gaining momentum and are well and truly taking flight. His progeny have been acquired by some of the country’s leading trainers, and he is represented by multiple two and three-year-old winners, including Listed Tasmanian Guineas winner, Alpine Wolf.

In the sales ring, his yearlings have sold for up to $180,000 and, over two seasons, have averaged more than eight times his service fee.
