4th January 2022, Jockey Niall Houlihan
Our first runner of 2022 and it is a winner thanks to the loveable Legal Rights – congratulations to his connections!
The horse won his first race over hurdles at Fontwell Park on Boxing Day and after being in such great spirits at home trainer Gary Moore decided to get him out again quickly and travel him and Owners to Hereford. Despite the long journey there were plenty of Legal Rights’ Owners there to support him as the horse was once again given a peach of a ride from Niall Houlihan!
It was great to see Legal Rights travelling and jumping well and he responded ever so gamely as he came under pressure on the turn for home. Niall made the smart decision to go up the inside and once over the last Legal Rights really dug deep, pricking his ears as he crossed the line the winner.
Everyone at Cisswood Stables is in agreement as to how great it is to see this horse thoroughly enjoying his life and hitting form. He just eats up the very soft ground which is perfect this time of year and he will now enjoy a quieter few weeks before racing again. We look forward to seeing him back racing later on this month.
