Ridgemont Highlands’ multiple Gr1 winning sire Canford Cliffs continues to deliver the winners internationally and played his part in an emotional victory at Newmarket on Friday for young Italian jockey Gaia Boni.

 

Miss Boni can boast a winner at Newmarket on her CV after steering Wimpole Hall to a first victory in more than six months in the Play 4 To Score At Betway Handicap. The 22-year-old Italian celebrated her second success of the season, to match her total from last year aboard the Canford Cliffs gelding for her boss, William Jarvis.

Anchoring the 9-1 chance at the rear of the field for much of the 2000m race,  the 7lb claimer kept a calm head before getting the better of William Buick aboard Songkran by a head.

Boni said: “I was very keen to get the same amount of winners as last year, so this is good for me to have the same number at the moment. Hopefully I can keep the ball rolling.” On the winner, she added: “I was pretty confident when I got a lead as he relaxed in behind, so I knew he was going to have a good chance. I then moved him out wide and tried to stay there.”

Wimpole Hall has now won six races and is out of the Lujain mare, Sparkling EyesHis sire Canford Cliffs’ first SA crop will be offered in 2021.

A winner at Royal Ascot three years running, Canford Cliffs is currently the sire of 38 black type horses and his progeny have banked close on $23 million in prize money.
