Canford Cliffs – Irish 2000 Guineas

A special performance – Canford Cliffs comes of age with a sparkling display in the Abu Dhabi Irish 2000 Guineas at The Curragh under jockey Richard Hughes for trainer Richard Hannon.

Travelling like a class horse and putting the race decidively to bed, the colt makes amends from his third in the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket to run out a ready winner of the Irish equivalent as 9/4 favourite.

A Classic winner here, Canford Cliffs went on to win five Group 1 races and won on all three visits to Royal Ascot. Canford Cliffs now stands as a stallion at Coolmore Stud.
