7th December 2021, Jockey Tom Cannon
Congratulations to connections of Cilaos Glace who won his first race over fences at Fontwell Park on 7th December and in an eye-catching style too!
Under a very positive ride from Tom Cannon, Cilaos Glace travelled strongly seeming to really enjoy a prominent racing position. His jumping was a little awkward yet efficient and he soon pulled clear from his rivals as they turned out of the back straight. A little hairy over the 3rd and 2nd last but a great leap over the last saw Cilaos Glace maintain a lengthy lead and come home a winner of his 3rd career race.
Tom felt the horse enjoyed the prominent tactics, ground and trip and hopefully he can build on this run next time.
We cannot tell you how over the moon we are for everyone involved in this horse. He has taken plenty of time and patience and we must thank his loyal Owners for sticking by him. Also Oliver and his team for all of their work, especially the vet Buffy who has been a great help with this horse’s training programme.
When Cilaos Glace wins he does so in fabulous style and we are so happy to see it all come together for him & his connections. He is 100% sound and well post race too so we look forward to his next start!
