Canford won quite impressively in early June and qualified Keryn Corr as our Owner of the Month.
Keryn had this to say about Canford:
Canford (Canford Cliffs x Sorenstam) won his maiden on the 2nd of June in stylish fashion coming from near last to work through the field and burst out late winning by nearly 2 lengths. A brilliant ride by Jamie Kah which had the race caller in disbelief and the owners ecstatic..
The 3 year old has always shown ability and his trainer Ryan Balfour has allowed him to mature over several preparations with a focus on getting him out over a middle distance, this succeeded at his 7th start with a win at Morphettville Parks over 1550m.
The Ryan Balfour racing team have a great understanding of how to manage Canford sending him for short breaks up to Satchell’s Willow Grove Stud at Woodside after every race and recently acquiring a stable pony to provide him with a relaxed stable environment and travelling companion.
These tactics are working well and we hope Canford will continue to master and enjoy his racing career.
Canford was purchased at the 2016 Inglis Premier Sales and is enthusiastically followed by a great bunch of owners, 4 of whom are SAROA members Peter Lewis, Esther Doel Henshall, Keryn Corr & Ross Corr
