8th March 2019, Jockey Niall Houlihan
Another congratulations to the Owners of Waikiki Waves as he wins again over fences – this time at Leicester on 8th March!
With a small field, some weight off his back and the ground in his favour trainer Gary Moore was adamant this was the right race for Waikiki Waves so a huge thank you and congratulations must go to him!
The horse was given an excellent ride by young conditional jockey Niall Houlihan who secured a handy position throughout and it was great to see the horse jumping his fences brilliantly. He did run in snatches but Niall encouraged Waikiki Waves throughout and he looked to be in a great position on the turn for home. He slipped on landing the 4th last fence but corrected himself well and went onto jump the last 3 fences beautifully, staying on strongly in the finish.
Niall rode a great race and said “he just loves jumping! For a little horse he really came up in my hands at each fence and I loved riding him.”
It is great to see Waikiki Waves enjoying his fences and Gary Moore believes there could be more wins to come from him! Congratulations once more to his Owners and to Gary and his team!
