Current Option bought the curtain down on our first year of ownership with a fantastic win in The Sovereign Path Premier Handicap over 7 furlongs at Leopardstown as part of Irish Champions Weekend. Just to have a runner good enough to compete on this weekend was an amazing achievement, with our first win only having come 6 months early in a claimer at Dundalk.
A horse we have always thought very highly of after buying him from the William Haggas stable at the July sales in Newmarket, he had previously ran two great races for us, finishing runner up in both, the time before at The Curragh in the Irish Cambridgeshire.
Despite being drawn slightly wider than we hoped for and taking a bump at the start, Current Option was always in a handy position before going for home over two furlongs out under Rowan Whelan. When the chasers started to close our lad bravely fought back to hold them all at bay and winning as the 9-2 fav.
We are very excited about what the future holds for him.
