Although plans had called for Bold Eagle to travel to North America for stakes action this season, the great trotter will not be coming to Canada and the United States this year, according to a report.

The United States Trotting Association has reported that the French trotter finished seventh in the Prix Rene Balliere on Sunday (June 21) at Vincennes, and that Bold Eagle's upcoming trip to North America was cancelled at some point after the performance.

Last fall, Bold Eagle overcame the travel, the elements and the competition to win the 2019 Breeders Crown Open Trot at Woodbine Mohawk Park, where he defeated world record holders Six Pack and Atlanta in 1:52.

Plans had called for Bold Eagle to contest the 2020 Maple Leaf Trot at Woodbine Mohawk Park before heading down to the United States to race in the Breeders Crown at Harrah's Hoosier Park in late October. Bold Eagle was to be retired after the Breeders Crown.

According to the USTA, the new plan calls for Bold Eagle to make his final appearance on the Belgium track in Mons in the Grand Prix de Wallonie on August 2.
