15th October 2023, Jockey Jason Watson
The biggest of congratulations to Alpha Crucis and his wonderful Owners as this horse wins again – this time at Goodwood’s finale fixture! Not only has this syndicate been incredibly patient and loyal over the summer months which makes this win so very extra special, but they really do know how to celebrate a winner!!
Alpha Crucis headed into his race in great order and he was given a beautifully timed ride from Jason Watson. The field did appear to go relatively quickly from the off but Jason did not panic and let the horse find his rhythm towards the rear of the field. Once he asked for an effort from Alf 2f out, the horse responded gamely and really starting passing horses in the closing stages strongly before going onto win with a little in hand.
Jason was delighted with the horse as was Gary who said “I am so pleased for his patient Owners, but also for the little horse whose shown he is all heart!”
We are pleased to write that Alpha Crucis has come out of his race well and he could enjoy one final run of the season all being well and if the weather allows as soft ground is clearly his preference. It has been a lightly raced season for Alpha Crucis but with 2 wins and a second under his belt and he’s only 3 years old – who knows what 2024 has in store!
