Cian and Larkhill Cruiser have formed an amazing partnership and have shown unprecedented consistency since teaming up last December.
Cian always praised the Cruising gelding for his brain and turn of foot but even he didn’t know just how good Joey would turn out. In their last four starts on the Spanish Sunshine Tour, all of which were world ranking classes, the pair had two wins, a second and a third. They won a hotly contested class last Friday when a foot perfect speed round saw them come out on top.
Today in the Grand Prix they were again clear and were drawn midway in the jump off. Cian rode a smooth tight round that looked good enough to take the class until Guy Williams and the ground-eating Titus pipped them by 0.15 seconds.
Cian said afterwards, “It's so nice to have a horse like Larkhill Cruiser, who does the talking for me!! “
Trebox Accorada, a new 8yr old mare to Cian placed second in the 1m40 Two Phase last Friday. the same day Mark Kinsella was 2nd in the 1m40 with Waterboy. The Sunshine Tour continues for two more weeks.
