Ridgemont Highlands’ multiple Gr1 winning sire Canford Cliffs enjoyed more success in Australia this Friday when the son of Tagula was responsible for a pair of winners.
His four-year-old daughter Ciceroni shed her maiden when scoring over 1600m at Cranbourne on Friday, while Canford Cliffs’ lightly raced son Dorset Coast also got off the mark, when he was victorious at Ballina over 1000 metres.
Three-year-old gelding Dorset Coast has done little wrong in three starts to date, having won or placed in each of his first three starts to date.
His sire Canford Cliffs has been on a winning streak of note, and recently had a trio of winners in Australia over the weekend, with his other recent winners including the lightly raced British gelding Dutch Pursuits – a winner of two of his only three starts to date.
Canford Cliffs, whose 25 stakes horses include high class South African stakes winners Fish River and Dorset Noble, is also responsible for the durable galloper Falcao Negro who recently won for a 12th time.
He stood for a fee of R30 000 in 2018 during which time Canford Cliffs covered over 100 mares.
