Higherthananeagle is the sixth foal out of producing mare Three Eagles and is a full brother to Fly Like An Eagle (19 wins $699K) and Mach Doro (20 wins $374k), Fly Like An Eagle is currently at stud and has produced 55 unraced offspring to date. (36 rising 2yo, hopefully some winners there too).
Three Eagles is a half-sister to Anvil Vance (17 wins $450k) and her granddam is the broodmare of champion pacer Chokin (34 wins $1.8M) so, the breeding for success is definitely there.
Looks like there will be more wins instore for Higherthananeagle in the future.
