16th November 2020, Joshua Moore
Congratulations to the Owners of our very own little star Waikiki Waves as he triumphs again over fences, scoring his 6th win over the large obstacles.
The fences at Leicester really do take some jumping but this is Waikiki Waves’ forte and he jumped with springs in his heels! He showed confidence under a fine ride from Josh Moore who gave the horse plenty of daylight at his fences and got him jumping in a nice rhythm. He was a little caught for speed as the field quickened in the home straight but once he got himself together he picked up beautifully and won going away. This was arguably his best win off a career high mark – well done Waikiki!
Josh was delighted with the horse and said “This is a real jumpers track and he loved it; it’s his jumping that wins him races. I feel going forward if we look at similar tracks with proper fences, you’d see him improve again.”
Waikiki Waves has come out of the race well and after such a rotten day for the team at Cisswood Stables on Monday, Waikiki’s win certainly lifted their and our spirits and he has been showered in cuddles and carrots!
