Avenue of Flags on the move


Golden Eagle Farms has sold its stallion Avenue of Flags privately to an unidentified owner in New Mexico, and the horse will relocate to Double LL Farms in Brosque, N.M., for the 2005 season.

Avenue of Flags, a 16-year-old son of Seattle Slew, stood this year at Golden Eagle in Ramona, Calif., for $15,000. He is the sire of Grade 1 winners Joey Franco and Notable Career and two-time Grade 2 winner Fleet Lady, among other stakes-winners.

A Grade 2 winner, Avenue of Flags is out of the stakes-winning Pass the Glass mare Beautiful Glass. He is a half-brother to stakes-winner Jeanne Jones.
