Athlon excels at Windsor

Posted on: 13th Jun 2016 by: David R. Lanigan

Sent off the 3/1 favourite, Athlon showed his toughness to land this 10 furlong contest at Windsor on Monday night. Sat mid-division by jockey George Baker, Athlon was sent on about two furlongs from home to take the lead a furlong out. He had to battle hard to the line, but got up to win by a head under a great ride by George Baker.

Following the race, trainer David Lanigan said, "I think the ground at Bath was a bit too quick for him and he appreciated the ground here at Windsor tonight. I think he will get further with time and hopefully there is more improvement yet to come from him".

Congratulations to the connections of Athlon, Mr Bjorn Nielsen, Mr Stephen Martus, Mr Oli Bell, Ms Madeleine Delaney, Mr Cameron McMillan, Mr John Connellan and Mr Drew McMillan.
