26th December 2021, Jockey Niall Houlihan
Congratulations to Owners of Legal Rights as he delivers a belated Christmas present by winning his first race over hurdles at Fontwell Park on Boxing Day!
The horse looked a picture going into his race and under a great ride from Niall Houlihan Legal Rights jumped his hurdles beautifully, travelling strongly throughout his race and really relishing the ground. When Niall asked him for an effort as the field kicked on the horse responded brilliantly and to be honest he always looked to be the winner. Niall was mostly hands and heels at the business end and it was great to see Legal Rights win a tad cosily for his Owners.
Niall was delighted with the horse and said “He was very professional and showed a great attitude. I was marked the whole round but when Global Agreement joined me over the last I was pleased as it helped with his focus. He handled the ground brilliantly and he was able to quicken away in it. This trip is ideal and he’s certainly a good fun horse with more to come.”
Legal Rights has come out of his race in brilliantly order and we are already looking to his next race which will be in the New Year. Hopefully he can build from here and Owners can continue to enjoy a fun season with this genuine horse.
