When the Bel Esprit 4YO, Cahier, stepped out for the first time – in a Mornington maiden on 10 June – he led for most of the journey, only to fade into sixth on a heavy track.
This time around though, the David Hayes speedster showed no signs of weakening – quite the opposite in fact. By the time he hit the wire over 1200m at Geelong on Friday, Cahier had five lengths to spare and is clearly a horse with considerable promise. David Hayes certainly thinks so and don’t be surprised if the bay heads to town for his next assignment.
Bred and raced by Brian and Heather Walker, Cahier is out of the Nine Carat mare, Helen’s Fortune.
