Ajax Tavern finished 2019 off for us in style by winning first time out at Lingfield under Tom Marquand. Having worked hard to get on the front end, despite showing his inexperience, he proved too strong to pass and went clear to win by a comfortable 3 ¼ lengths. This son of Candford Cliffs will no doubt improve for the education and we look forward to seeing him progress in the coming season.
As Richard said, “our youngsters are not made to win first time out so it was particularly pleasing, we will now put him away for the turf.”
It was great to end the year off as we mean to go on and we look forward to seeing our two year olds prepare for their racecourse debuts over the coming months.
