Falcon Way broke his maiden today at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club at his fourth start in a race and only his second start for Team Guy. The son of Statue Of Liberty was sent north by his owner John Moore after two fruitless runs in Sydney. Settling into his new environment Falcon Way was unlucky at his first start in the Sunshine State after drawing a wide barrier at his Queensland debut and should have finished much closer in that race given an ounce of luck. Settling in fourth position in today’s race Falcon Way made his move at the top of the straight before wearing down the race leader to score by a head.
Winning co trainer Bryan Guy was pleased with the effort from Falcon Way and the manner in which he handled the step up to the mile which was the distance of today’s event “That was a tough win, he should have finished closer at his debut run for the stable and that run indicated that he would be better suited over further. I was a little worried half way up the straight as the race leader had a pretty easy time in front and I knew it would kick but what pleased me most was the way he dug deep and chased hard to the line, he really wanted to win.”
Falcon Way was ridden in today’s race by jockey Glen Colless who ventured north for one ride and he rode the horse to perfection settling in the box seat before asking for a race winning effort “While there wasn’t much of a margin the win was good as the race leader got away with some cheap sectionals and my fellow dug deep to reel him in. Given the way he settled and worked to the line I think he will get over further and he’s only a young horse with limited starts so I think there is some upside.”
Leading Hong Kong trainer John Moore is the owner of Falcon Way which races in the same colours as former Guy Stable star and now Hong Kong based Eagle Way. Winning co trainer Daniel Guy thanked John and his bloodstock agent son George for their continued support “It’s great to get another winner for John and George they are big supporters of our stable and when they call and say they have another horse you always know that the horse will be a good type and blessed with ability.”
