Air Horse lands the spoils
Air Horse One delivered our first winner of the new season in a bunch finish to the concluding bumper at Exeter on Tuesday evening.
Despite signs of greenness on his racecourse debut he showed a willing attitude to hold on in workmanlike fashion as he was challenged on all sides in the closing stages.
In a slowly run race he had the benefit of a flawless ride by Noel Fehily who was in the right place to strike for home early in the finishing straight.
We will put Air Horse One away now and look for improvement to come when he comes back into training in the autumn.
He is the first winner owned by a group of enthusiasts in the City who race under the banner of The Dons.
We bought him privately as a three year old at Doncaster Sales a year ago after he was led out of the ring unsold.
