This week Cian added a very interesting string to his bow in securing a deal for the very successful Larkhill Cruiser (pictured right with John Floody - photo by Laurence Dunne). Larkhill Cruiser is a 9 year-old chestnut gelding by Cruising out of a Crosstown Dancer mare. Larkhill Cruiser has won 14 Grands Prix this season alone, mostly on the national circuit, and including the Premier Series at Balmoral and the international Grand Prix at Tattersalls. In September he became the only horse ever to win both the Derby and the Grand Prix at Cavan. All the wins were under the command of John Floody.
Cian said after the arrival of the gelding at his yard today: "I'm delighted to have purchased Larkhill Cruiser from Michael Smith and I'm looking forward to bringing him to the next level. If he tries half as much for me as he did for John then I'll be very happy!"
