La Cigale wins the Summer Cup

Jan 02, 2017

As a son of Lonhro out of the Group 2 placed Madame Pedrille big things were always expected of La Cigale.A fabulous track worker the little brown gelding has been a little frustrating at times.In a race career of 17 starts he has recorded 2 wins, 5 seconds, 4 thirds, 5 fourths and 1 fifth place.Whilst this has meant that he has always earned prizemoney for his owners we always thought he was capable of more.On the 30 December he finished off 2016 on a high note scoring an easy 1.8 lengths win over a handy field in the Summer Cup at Coffs Harbour.
